The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS (CAAR) is a trade association for real estate professionals in the Charlottesville area, which CAAR defines as Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson Counties.

As of January 10, 2014, John Ince is the President. [1]

Anne Gardner became the new chief executive officer on October 11, 2010.[2]

Political activity

CAAR publicly endorses candidates for local office, and directs resultant contributions from the Realtors Political Action Committee of Virginia to their campaigns.

2009 endorsements

In 2009 CAAR endorsed Rodney Thomas (R) for the Rio seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, and Duane Snow for the Samuel Miller District seat. In Charlottesville, CAAR endorsed Dave Norris (D) and Kristin Szakos (D) for the Charlottesville City Council[3][4].

Real Estate Weekly

CAAR publishes the Real Estate Weekly.

In 2010 the Real Estate Weekly moved into shared office space with C-Ville Weekly. According to an email announcement, CAAR did not sell the publication to C-Ville, but consolidated offices to "allow the CAAR Real Estate Weekly to reduce staff and overhead."[5]
