About Us

A member organization of the National Association of Realtors®, the North Central Penn Board of Realtors® (NCPBR) is comprised of residential and commercial Realtors® who subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

Established in 1973, NCPBR represents approximately 15 brokerage firms with more than 100 active Realtors® from Potter and Tioga counties. The local trade organization is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and managed by AIM, Association Independent Management.

Our Beginning

The endeavor to form our board began in 1970. Jane Stevens, a founding broker, attended the meetings of the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors® and recognized the importance of building a local Realtor® board.

To accomplish the birth of the North Central Penn Board, individual brokers traveled from the western border of Potter County to the eastern border of Bradford County to drum up the necessary brokerage firms to meet the criteria set by NAR. At the time of our charter, NAR required at least five brokerage firms to create a local Realtor® board.

On May 9, 1973, the National Association of Realtors® chartered the North Central Penn Board of Realtors®. At time time, NCPBR’s region included Potter County in the west, Tioga County in the center, and Bradford County in the east.
