The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association (ORRA) is one of the largest local trade associations in the state of Florida, with more than 15,000 REALTORS® and affiliate members in Orange, Seminole, and the surrounding counties.
Our membership is composed of residential and commercial REALTORS®; brokers; salespeople; property managers; appraisers; counselors; and others who are engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry.
The term "REALTOR®" is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and abides by its strict Code of Ethics.
The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association is the REALTORS® primary resource for success.
The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association creates an environment that elevates the professionalism and experience of REALTORS®.
NAR's Code of Ethics, adopted in 1913, was one of the first codifications of ethical duties adopted by any business group. The Code ensures that consumers are served by requiring REALTORS® to cooperate with each other in furthering clients' best interests.
The Orlando Board of REALTORS® was established in 1921.

The Orlando and Winter Park boards of REALTORS® merged in 1962 to become the Orlando-Winter Park Board of REALTORS®.
