The History of SPAAR

Promoting The Dream Of Homeownership Since 1886

Luke Fleck - 04/29/2021

The Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® was founded in 1886, and has grown to over 7,500 members. We are dedicated to promoting the dream of homeownership with the highest level of professionalism and integrity.


Over a Century of Service

For over 130 years, the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® (SPAAR) has been dedicated to promoting the dream of homeownership with the highest level of professionalism and integrity, through the four pillars: Advocacy, Communication, Professionalism, and Community Outreach.


Better Agents

The Association serves as a resource to its members, providing education through easily accessible, highly valuable and fairly priced educational opportunities, either through live or on-line courses. We offer relevant educational programs, which will enhance the members’ ability to conduct their businesses in an ethical and professional manner. We will promote and participate in the National Association of REALTORS® REP (REALTORS® Excellence Program) that will enhance the quality of services offered to buyers and sellers.


Better Communities

The Association coordinates and promotes community service programs to engage members and to create a positive impact in our communities. In 2013, SPAAR created the Community Engagement Award to honor a member, who goes above and beyond just involvement in various community groups and projects. In 2018, SPAAR had the opportunity to donate funds to Rondo Avenue, Inc. for the creation of the future Rondo Museum, and partnered with Meals From the Heart and the community to pack over 250,000 meals for local neighbors in need during the Side by Side event.
