who can become a member?
There are three criteria for membership in the Realty Guild:
Your office may not be affiliated with a franchise or chain
You must be a REALTOR® in good standing
Your office(s) may not be in a town or city neighborhood where we currently have a member. View current members by town.
Who is the member?
The broker/owner is the actual member of the Realty Guild, although we do hold programs for sales associates.
What is the governing structure?
The Realty Guild is structured similarly to a Board of REALTORS®. It is owned by the membership, is a not-for-profit, and has volunteer leadership forming a Board of Directors and holding committee positions. The executive director is hired.
how do you structure your membership directory?
When you search to see if there is a Realty Guild member in your town, a company may appear that isn't in your town. While we take only one office per town, we structure our membership directory to provide coverage across the state. If we do not have an office in Town A, but have members who serve that town, we will list them. As soon as there is a member in Town A, only the member will appear in a search. View current members by town.
How would I pay for dues, programs and advertising?
Dues are payable quarterly. Programs and advertising are paid at the time the cost is incurred. All Realty Guild members are required to have a current credit card on file with us. Any advertising must be charged to a credit card. You may elect to either have us charge your credit card or send you an invoice for dues and programming.
Do I have to participate in everything the Realty Guild offers?
Not at all! In fact everything about the Realty Guild is by choice. Only participate in what makes sense for your firm.
