The REALTORS® Land Institute is an affiliate of the over million-member National Associations of REALTOR®. It is the only branch of the REALTOR® family focused on land brokerage transactions of five specialized types:
- farms and ranches
- undeveloped tracts of land
- transitional and development land
- subdivision and wholesaling of lots
- site selection and assemblage of land parcels.
Originally named the Farm & Land Institute, it was organized in 1944, and has been dedicated for over six decades to improving the professional competence of its members in land brokerage. In addition to brokerage of the five main types that are unique to the Institute, its individual members frequently engage in other land specialties such as agribusiness, appraisal, consulting, land auctions, and land management.
