In order to join GHAR, the application must be signed by the Designated REALTOR® or other authorized personnel. Once the application has been received by GHAR staff, the applicant will be notified of the orientation schedule. Applicants have six months in which to complete the required Orientation program. If the applicant does not attend the Orientation Program and Code of Ethics training 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 for approval.

Designated REALTOR® 

The Designated REALTOR® is the broker owner of the firm or the supervising manager of the sponsored agents of the firm.
