4 Realtor groups join statewide system

Real estate brief

Fresno, Lake County, Madera County, and Merced County Realtor associations are the first active participants in a statewide multiple listing service initiative in California by CALMLS, a nonprofit subsidiary of the California Association of Realtors.

Combined, the four associations that are charter members of the statewide system represent only about 3,500 members — the Fresno Association of Realtors is the largest with about 2,400 Realtor members.
