A Northern Virginia real estate broker who set up an online networking group for Northern Virginia Realtors to talk shop has shut down that group at the request of a local Realtor association.

Frank Borges LLosa, broker for Frankly Real Estate Inc., in Alexandria, Va., said he was surprised that the "NVAR (unofficial)" group that he created at the Facebook social networking site drew fire from the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, a local Realtor trade group.
