Learn more about the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® Charitable Foundation
Since 1959, the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® has been a professional trade association that provides services to our local REALTOR® community. Our membership base is comprised of more than 4,500 REALTOR® and Business Partner members that serve Brevard County and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics when working with one another and the general public. The Space Coast Association of REALTORS® takes an active role in community programs and pursues projects our members support to further real estate interests. The protection of private property rights is always our top priority.
The Space Coast Association of REALTORS® employs 14 full-time staff, including Leah Selig, the Association's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) since 1978. The Association serves REALTORS® and community members from a new location in the Town of Palm Shores. The Association's 15,266-square-foot building is a centralized facility that provides REALTORS® across Brevard County with a range of professional services, including professional development, the Space Coast Multiple Listing Service (Space Coast MLS) and meeting space for town halls and events the Association holds throughout the year.
Staffed by a dedicated team of professionals with more than two centuries of experience, the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® is the primary source of resources, tools and continuing education courses for local REALTORS®. The Association also handles member renewals, monitors adherence to the REALTOR Code of Ethics and provides the county's MLS, which is a database that houses thousands of properties for sale in Brevard and updates in real time. Statistics gleaned from the MLS are provided to members and the media in a monthly report that provides insights into market performance.

In addition, the Association keeps a vigilant eye on state and local governing bodies to advocate for real estate and private property rights.
The Association has 19 committees and task forces that devote time and resources toward Association goals, such as enhancing professional development, organizing community outreach initiatives and safeguarding property rights. One of the Association's largest committees is Brevard's Children in Need, which since its founding in 2012, has raised more than $400,000 for children experiencing homelessness along the Space Coast. The committee is now the fundraising arm of the newly launched Space Coast REALTORS® Charitable Foundation.

Space Coast Association of REALTORS® History
The Space Coast Association of REALTORS® has a history that stretches back to 1959, during the early years of the Space Race. The first Association president, Al Trafford, paved the way for later generations of leadership that have cultivated an enduring legacy of professionalism in the field. The Association is growing every day to meet the needs of Brevard County residents, and in the last four decades alone has grown from 130 REALTOR® members to more than 3,300. Over time, the three Real Estate Associations that aided Brevard County REALTORS® in growing their careers went through a series of mergers. The final one occurred in December of 2013, when the Melbourne Area Association of REALTORS and Space Coast Realtors merged and became the Space Coast Association of REALTORS®. Today, the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® serves all of Brevard's REALTORS® and community members and is one of the largest professional organizations in the county.
