As a real estate professional, it is time to distinguish yourself from the competition. REALTOR® membership gives you that competitive edge!
As a REALTOR®, you join more than 13,500 members locally and 1,000,000 members nationally who share your enthusiasm and commitment to the REALTOR® profession. We are committed to providing you with an array of member benefits designed to contribute to your success.
To join as a NEW MEMBER, you cannot be a REALTOR® member or have been a REALTOR® member with any association in the United States or Puerto Rico within the past year. (If you are a returning ORRA member, please use this application.)
To join as a SECONDARY MEMBER, you must be a primary (full paying) member at another REALTOR® board or association, and will be required to provide a letter of good standing with proof of payment from your Primary Board with this application.
The National Association of REALTORS® equates appraiser licenses with that of a real estate broker or sales associate; therefore, a certified appraiser (residential or general) or registered trainee appraiser, will join as a REALTOR® member.
ORRA has prepared Guidelines for Employing Personal Assistants or ORRA Office Assistants as a member service based upon information provided by FREC and ORRA Legal Counsel. The new Procedural Guidelines for MFRMLS Unlicensed Assistant/User Access are also available for review.
If your broker is a member of a REALTOR® association, all members in their office must be as well. The Broker or Designated REALTOR® is responsible to pay an assessment equal to your dues. As a non-member, you would only submit your contact information, but you do not complete the entire membership application nor attend the New Member Orientation and NAR Code of Ethics courses. Please note that non-members are not permitted to use the term "REALTOR®" or use the "R" logo on any of their correspondence, signs, business cards, etc.
