The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) is a real estate board in Canada operating in the Greater Toronto Area.

History[edit]

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) was founded in 1920 by a small group of real estate practitioners. Today, as Canada’s largest real estate Board, TREB serves more than 53,000 licensed real estate brokers and salespeople located in and beyond the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).[Toronto Real Estate Board Strategic Plan 2017-2020]

Work[edit]

TREB is the collective voice for its REALTOR® Members and operates under the direction of an elected, voluntary Board of 16 Directors. These Directors are, in fact, Members themselves, volunteering their time in the best interest of all TREB Members.

TREB’s core Member services include the Multiple Listing Service®, the Buyer Registry Service®, Market Reports, Data Access & Industry Information, Government Relations, Communications & Public Affairs, Professional Development, Professional Standards, Arbitration, and Member Services.[Toronto Real Estate Board Strategic Plan 2017-2020]

The latest addition to TREB’s public website, TREBhome.com, allows consumers the ability to search GTA Listings in real time! It also offers stats infographics; Market Watch reports as well as commercial, condo, and rental reports; open house information; topical consumer issues; news releases; and much more.[TREBhome.com]

The Toronto Real Estate Board's Government Relations staff closely monitors residential and commercial real estate issues that affect Member REALTORS® and the public they serve. TREB also maintains communication with government officials, providing input into important decisions that have consequences for homeowners, renters and investors. Current initiatives focus on affordable home ownership, housing supply and demand, affordable housing, consumer protection, mortgage restrictions, land transfer taxes, and economic development.[TREBhome.com]

Under contract with TREB, the Brampton Real Estate Board (BREB) and the Durham Region Association of REALTORS® (DRAR) use TREB’s MLS® System. TREB’s MLS® System contains listings throughout the GTA, and indeed, the Greater Golden Horseshoe, others parts of Ontario, and even beyond.[Toronto Real Estate Board]
