Chartered in 1995, as a commercial overlay board, the New York State Commercial Association of REALTORS® is a specialty local board of REALTORS® with statewide jurisdiction.
NYSCAR was formed by commercial practitioners who had a vision of a board of REALTORS® dedicated specifically to commercial issues. In succeeding years, NYSCAR has implemented that vision by creating opportunities for members to enhance their professional education, to network with colleagues across the state, and to market commercial property in statewide forums.
Membership in the New York State Commercial Association of REALTORS®, Inc. is an investment in your career and your profession. The association gives members a key for successful sales through increased professional contacts, advanced continuing education courses and much more.
NYSCAR membership has grown to 702 at the beginning of 2008. The Association is governed by a Board of Governors with representation from constituent groups across the state.
There are six active NYSCAR Chapters throughout the state, including Greater Capital, Hudson Valley, Metro LI, Rochester Area, Western New York and Southern Tier. One of the most visible and most successful of NYSCAR’s endeavors has been the development of the annual commercial real estate conference at the Turning Stone Resort held in June, jointly sponsored by the Northern New Jersey/New York State Chapter of CCIM and the Upstate and Downstate Chapters of SIOR and the Society of Exchange Counselors. This premier event has grown from a half day program to two and one-half days packed with six challenging and topical continuing education courses, one and a half days of marketing sessions facilitated by the SEC, and networking events ranging from a golf tournament to a luncheon featuring nationally recognized keynote speakers.
