Historically, the desire to own land and a home is deeply embedded in the fabric of American society, and dates to the earliest days of our country. PPAR REALTORS® recognize that the interests of our communities require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of homeownership. PPAR and its REALTOR® members promote homeownership, attainable housing for all, and protect private property rights.

In 1987, the REALTOR® Services Corp (RSC) became a wholly owned subsidiary of PPAR. RSC is the provider of the Pikes Peak Multiple Listing Service™ (PPMLS™) which has the most accurate up-to-date listings for the Pikes Peak Region. REALTORS® work together through the PPMLS™ to monitor what is happening across the market and cooperate to get sales done.

PPAR was issued its charter from NAR, the largest trade association in the nation, in 1918. The Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR) was founded in 1921. Upon approval of the three-way membership agreement in 1926, NAR, CAR and PPAR began working in unison for the benefit of the membership and the consumer. By working together, REALTORS® use their collective voice to serve as advocates for the homeowner, and ensure that local ordinances, state, and federal legislation do not adversely impact homeowners.
