REALTOR® Member

A REALTOR® Member refers to those holding a sales person license and those holding a brokers license who are seeking to be broker associates of a firm. Orientation and Code of Ethics training are required.

The application must be signed by the Designated REALTOR® or other authorized personnel. Once the application has been received, the agent will be notified of the orientation schedule. Applicants have six months in which to complete the required Orientation program. If the agent does not attend the Orientation Program within the required six month period, they will have to reapply for membership and submit another application fee. Upon completion of the Orientation Program, the agent's application will be forwarded to the Board of Directors.

Designated REALTOR® Member

The Designated REALTOR® is the broker owner of the firm or the supervising manager of the sponsored agents of the firm. Orientation and Code of Ethics training are required within six months. If the broker does not attend the Orientation Program within the required six month period, GHAR and MLS services will be terminated for the entire office, including any agents affiliated with that broker. If you have a referral agent, please submit the Change Form for Current Members and the Limited Function Referral Office certification form.

Upon completion of the Orientation Program, the broker's application will be forwarded to the Board of Directors. Until the application is approved, the broker will be listed as an applicant and they will be unable to receive any REALTOR® member benefits.
