What is GNIAR?

committee3Welcome to the home for Greater Northwest Indiana Association of REALTORS®. Thank you for visiting our site.

While, GNIAR is a member driven Association, we strive to be the voice for real estate in Northwest Indiana. Not only do we give the public the tools to search for a properties for sale online through our Multiple Listing Service, but we hope to become your resource for all things real estate related from finding a REALTOR® to open houses in the area. 

GNIAR represents more than 1,900 members in nearly 500 offices in Lake, Porter, Jasper, Newton, Starke and Pulaski Counties. We also serve several hundred from LaPorte County, IN; Cook County, IL and Southwestern Michigan. Who belongs to GNIAR you may ask? Well, primarily real estate brokers and appraisers. We also have what we call Affiliate members composed of banks, mortgage companies, title companies, inspection firms and other businesses involved in real estate transactions.

Our members represent all aspects of real estate from residential to real estate development. GNIAR is only the local component of belonging to a REALTOR® Association. Our members are also part of the Indiana Association of REALTORS® (IAR – 16,000+ members) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), which has more than one million members.

Our members abide by a strict code of ethics and have access to a wide variety of business services that are not available to non-REALTORS. This gives them a competitive edge in the marketplace, enabling them to provide superior services to buyers and sellers of real property.
