IVAR Education Center

It's no secret that the strongest and most successful agents are also the best informed. New techniques, new laws, new procedures, new tools and technology create opportunities and often require agents to adjust.

IVAR is focused on bringing education to REALTOR® members at low or no cost when possible.
