Foundations & Divisions

The New York State Real Estate Education Foundation (NYSREEF) provides funds to REALTORS® wishing to advance their real estate careers through education.

The NYSAR Housing Opportunities Foundation was created to assist families and individuals in overcoming the obstacles to homeownership as well as to promote safe, decent, and affordable housing for all in New York State.

The NYSAR Appraisal Committee was newly created in 2013 and is focused on allowing appraisers to take part in education courses including the 7-hour National USPAP Update, review of state laws and regulations, discussion of industry requirements, and networking with appraisers from across the state.
