Useful Information

  • The principals of a real estate firm must first join a REALTOR® association before any non-principal can join. Principals are defined as: sole proprietors; partners in a partnership; corporate officers or majority shareholders of a corporation; or branch office managers acting on behalf of the principal.

  • Once the principal(s) decide to join the REALTOR® association, then all agents, brokers and appraisers that are licensed or affiliated with him or her have the option of also joining as members of the association.

  • Each REALTOR® firm appoints one of its principals as a "Designated" REALTOR® for the firm. If any agents, brokers, or appraisers affiliated with the firm choose not to be REALTORS®, then the "Designated" REALTOR® would be assessed a non-member assessment by the association for each non-member.

  • If the principal decides not to join the REALTOR® association, then none of the individuals affiliated with him or her can be REALTOR® members of the association.

  • The principals have what is called "board of choice," which means he or she can decide which REALTOR® associations in the state where the office is located (or contiguous to that state) to join.

  • Licensees affiliated with a REALTOR® firm may choose as their primary association any association where their office is located (or state contiguous) where the firm maintains a "Designated" REALTOR®.
