About Us

The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® is a not-for-profit professional association representing over 1,570 local REALTOR® members.

We support our REALTOR® members by providing them with the tools, resources, and education to conduct their business with professionalism. Some of these tools are the forms to instigate and complete a real estate transaction, the information system that populates what the public knows as

The Lakelands also advocates for the communities our members live and work in through outreach, and financial donations to shelter-based charities through the Ontario REALTORS Care® program. Each year we distribute funding to help these local organizations continue to support residents in the communities they serve. In addition to social advocacy, we work hard alongside our local, provincial, and federal governments to make sure that the dream of property ownership is fair and equitable.
