In 2015, Prairie Land Realtors became the name for the merged associations including the McPherson Board of Realtors (McPherson county), Hutchinson Board of Realtors (Reno & Rice counties) and Southern Plains Board of Realtors (Pratt county). The merger makes sure they are compliant with the Kansas Association of Realtors and National Association. Prairie Land Realtors offers professional development opportunities to brokers and realtors and updated technology like Bluetooth lockboxes. It also includes a national portal syndication of the MLS (Multi-List Services).
