Other Member Types

Secondary Membership

As an active REALTOR® member of another association, you can choose to become a Secondary Member of ORRA and join the Stellar MLS.

A REALTOR® Agent can become a secondary member of ORRA (excluding Stellar MLS participation) without the requirement of their Broker becoming a secondary member of ORRA (In-State only). Please call 407.513.7282 for Out-of-State secondary membership requests.

If you are a REALTOR® Agent and wish to participate in Stellar MLS as a secondary member, your Broker must be an ORRA member and an Stellar MLS participant.

Application requirements:

1. Submit a "Letter of Good Standing" from your Primary Association of REALTORS®. Include

  • License number
  • NRDS number
  • Verification and completion date of NAR Code of Ethics
  • Current years' State and National dues have been paid

2. Complete the online REALTOR® Membership Application for both the Broker and the Agent requesting secondary membership. In-State secondary members are welcome but not required to attend ORRA New Member Orientation. Out-of-State secondary members are required to attend Orientation.

If you are a broker, continue to steps 3 and 4

3. The broker must submit the completed and signed Participation Fee & Activation Agreement for Stellar MLS as well as the Principal Broker or Certified Appraiser Request to Participate Form.

4. New Office Contact Worksheet if the broker is opening a new company.

You will receive an email with information on how to pay.
