Before Provisional members can be approved by the Board of Directors, they are required to complete a mandatory Orientation program which includes completion of the NAR online Ethics Course for new members.

WHY BECOME A REALTOR®?

REALTOR® TRADEMARK

The term REALTOR® has one, and only one, meaning: REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark which identifies a real estate professional who is member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. The single most important rule governing the MARK is that it may only be used to convey this meaning, and never used to convey another meaning.

REALTOR® BENFITS PROGRAM

Designed with you in mind, the NAR REALTOR Benefits® Program is your official member benefits resource, bringing you discounts and unique offers on products and services just for REALTORS®.

WOMEN’S COUNCIL OF REALTORS®

REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC)

Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: REALTORS® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process.

REALTOR® SAFETY

As a REALTOR®, it’s important you have a personal safety protocol in place that you use every day with every client, like when meeting new clients, showing properties or sharing information online.
