History of RASE
The National Association of Real Estate Boards (now known as NAR) chartered the Sioux Falls Board of REALTORS®, Inc., on March 6, 1920. The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) was started in 1957 as an independent organization and later merged into the Association, where it operates as a standing committee. The Association’s geographic territory covers five counties (Minnehaha, Lincoln, Turner, McCook, and Lake). The Association name changed to REALTOR® Association of the Sioux Empire, Inc. (RASE) via a membership vote in July 2003, with final NAR approval received in October 2003. Local associations such as RASE, affiliate with the state and national associations. RASE pays a portion of annual membership dues to the state and national associations, and some membership dues remain with RASE.
