Johnson Award | The Denis Maguire Award for Community ServiceThe Real Estate Bar Association for Massachusetts, New England’s fastest growing bar association, includes over 3000 lawyer members and non-lawyer Associates sharing a 150-year tradition of professionalism and excellence advancing the practice of real estate law. Our members represent lenders, buyers, sellers, owners, landlords and tenants in every real estate practice area and specialty including resolving title issues and title insurance, commercial leasing, transactional matters for both residential and commercial property, affordable housing, environmental, zoning, permitting and land use, alternative dispute resolution and litigation.
REBA is committed to keeping members current on case law developments and state and federal legislation. Responding to member concerns, REBA supports, opposes and initiates legislation on Beacon Hill. REBA is the only bar association monitoring, addressing and seeking to eliminate the unauthorized practice of law in Massachusetts.
The Association’s committees draft and promulgate standards and useful forms which address ethical and practical problems and resolve title issues. Our popular peer-to-peer mentoring program offers pragmatic informal advice to any member with a question.
REBA sponsors educational seminars on matters of interest such as revisions in RESPA regulations, zoning, permitting and environmental issues, malpractice avoidance, foreclosure and condominium law.
Every member receives REBA's Handbook of Standards and Forms on CD Rom, a complete set of title, ethical and practice standards and forms which is updated regularly. In addition, REBA maintains a Guide to the Registries of Deeds, including periodic updates, for every county in the state. REBA'S website, www.reba.net, is a popular daily resource for members.
Networking, member interests and concerns focus the activities and direction of the Board of Directors. In addition to standards and forms, the Board's committees respond to registry of deeds concerns, technology matters and a wide range of member issues.
Membership in REBA demonstrates a lawyer's dedication to the highest standards of the profession. The REBA leadership and staff are committed to supporting that dedication with the strongest available service to members.
