REALTOR® Membership – Application form for any person applying for membership in the Berkshire County Board of REALTORS for the first time, or reinstating for a time period of greater than one (1) year. This application will activate MLS access, provided the office you join is affiliated with the MLS. 

MLS Membership

MLS Participation is open to any broker who holds REALTOR membership in a local, state association and national association of REALTORS. The brokerage must be engaged in appraisal or real estate business in our MLS jurisdiction or contiguous area identified in our MLS and make offers of compensation on a blanket basis to other brokers of the service. If a broker joins (participates) all licensed sales agent, appraiser or broker affiliated with their office become MLS users.  Only the broker-Participant has voting rights in the MLS and is billed all fees for services of their firm. Users may access the MLS under their broker’s supervision, but do not hold voting rights and do not pay for services directly.

Brokers who seek Multiple Listing Service access but do not currently hold REALTOR membership in any board must apply for both REALTOR and MLS membership. This application process has been combined to streamline the process. Pro-rated fees and the process are included in this document.

Brokers who already hold membership in the REALTOR organization can apply for MLS access by completing the following application. Please note that if REALTOR membership is held in Berkshire County, a copy of your Brokers license is all that is required for documentation with this application. If you hold membership elsewhere, please include a ‘Letter of Good Standing” from the Board where you hold REALTOR® membership. A $500 application fee is due and a monthly per agent charge of $30 per licensed real estate agent and/or licensed appraiser in your office is charged.
