The National Association of Realtors is composed of residential and commercial brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers, counselors, and others engaged in the real estate industry. Members belong to one or more of approximately 1,200 local associations/boards and 54 state and territory associations of REALTORS®.
In order to create a unified Realtor and affiliate list, we have come up with a database of active Realtors in conjunction with local Real Estate associations. This is to help Realtors, Lenders, Title agents and Lenders have statewide access to each other, to assist new Realtors for mentorship purposes and education while also maintaining professional ethics and standards.
In Lieu of this, please look through attached Member Directory PDF list and ensure your contact information and active Mobile Number is correctly represented.
Realtors who have been nominated for outstanding work over the course of this year have their names included in this piece so be sure to check it out
Please note that the initial PDF password access is ‘Realtor’ and member directory has been shared for all using our Business Dropbox
Thank you for all that you do and have a Lovely day!
