Mission and History


To be the innovative resource and advocate for real estate.


We are a powerful REALTOR® alliance working to protect and promote real property ownership and investment. We advocate by:

  • Speaking with one voice to:
            - advance issues, public policies, and candidates that will build strong communities;
            - promote a vibrant business environment;
            - protect the quality of life in our communities;
  • Promoting the value that a stable, sound and dynamic real estate market brings to our communities.
  • Educating elected officials on how their decisions impact real property owners.

Cape Fear REALTORS® (CFR) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(6) corporation that was created on June 2, 1924. It has grown tremendously in the past 90+ years. Presently, CFR serves more than 2,800+ REALTORS® in Southeastern North Carolina.

Our diverse membership is comprised of REALTORS® with the professional expertise to meet your real estate needs, whether it's your first home, a residential or commercial rental, or commercial property for sale. Our REALTOR® Members adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, which maintains that a high standard of conduct will be met in all activities.

Perhaps the best-known feature is the operation of our Multiple Listing Service. You may visit our "Find A Home" section on our homepage for a comprehensive listing of real estate available for purchase or lease in the marketplace. Our Association works to provide its members with contracts and forms to ease the real estate transaction, ensuring that the rights of all parties are addressed. Should a dispute arise between our members and you, the Association has established procedures to conduct professional standards, arbitration and mediation hearings if the situation warrants.

Our membership stays abreast of the latest industry advances by completing advance education courses on a host of topics – from technology to standard contract writing.

REALTORS® in Wilmington, NC are an effective voice for real estate, protecting your right to own, transfer and use real property. Our effective legislative program benefits all property owners at all levels of government. As a result of this Association’s involvement in the legislative arena, property owners benefit from an environment that cherishes one of our inherent real property rights.
