Missoula Organization of REALTORS®
Connecting Home & Community
What We Do
The Missoula Organization of REALTORS® is a trade association dedicated to providing valuable programs, products and services to members, to affiliate members and the community.
MOR provides a wide array of resources and opportunities to the local real estate industry and the community. This includes local housing market statistics, homeownership education, member training programs, charity events, monitoring local government issues pertaining to real estate and real estate law, just to name a few.
Chartered in 1947, MOR has seen many changes in nearly 70 years, but two bedrocks support today’s continued existence:
- The commitment to protecting private property rights for all individuals
- The commitment to conducting business in adherence to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics
Owning a home or property is like purchasing stock in the community. Homeowners have a vested interest in the community. The concept of individual property rights is critical to the American way of life. The Missoula Organization of REALTORS®, the Montana Association of REALTORS® and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® support and promote this concept.
Our organization is filled with talented, educated and caring individuals with a vast knowledge of the real estate industry. The Missoula Organization of REALTORS® is committed to helping build a better Missoula and surrounding areas by providing superior service to members and the community.
When it comes to a resource for real estate information, “think MOR.”
Government & Regulatory
REALTORS®, real estate industry professionals and citizens who own property must of necessity be involved in public affairs and community government and regulatory issues. Private property and homeownership is one of the most critical factors in shaping the community profile of Missoula and Western Montana. To ensure quality of life, standards are improved or, at minimum, maintained, being proactive with a clear, balanced, all-inclusive vision that is essential.
Conscious of this need, MOR provides a professional public affairs effort, coordinated by the MOR Public Affairs Director. This gives homeownership and the importance of homeownership to the community a face and a voice at meetings where decisions are made about housing and homeownership.
The Public Affairs Director meets with local government officials, community task forces, neighborhood groups and individuals to gain and provide knowledge relating to homeownership, private property rights and the quality of life in Missoula and Western Montana.
MOR also has a significant political role in the local area. MOR interviews and supports candidates in elections, is actively involved with the Montana Association in addressing statewide legislation and regulation and stays in touch with the Montana Congressional delegation in Washington D.C. through efforts of the National Association of REALTORS®.
As an organization comprised of individuals who are involved in the commerce of homeownership and business growth, we are in the business of building community, as well. ‘Building Community’ and giving back to the community is the heart of our organization. Individual members are some of the most civic-minded community activists. As REALTORS® and other real estate professionals, we “Choose to Make a Difference.”
MOR supports programs and holds events throughout the year in support of the community. Since 1988, through these programs and events, we are proud to have raised contributions totaling over $94,000 for various Missoula agencies, projects and organizations. MOR4Kids, a program that supports children in Missoula in need, is one way MOR gives back to the Missoula community. Read more about MOR4Kids.
Through our business and our community involvement, we are strive to Connect Home & Community.
