HOW TO BECOME A REALTOR®
Not all real estate licensees are REALTORS. A REALTOR® is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, a state association of REALTORS® and a local Board of REALTORS®. By joining the REALTOR® organization, a real estate professional pledges to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and its standards of professionalism, integrity and competence. The term REALTOR® is a registered and protected trademark and may only be used by real estate licensees who are REALTOR® members.
To become a REALTOR®, follow these steps:
- Find a Sponsoring Broker
- Obtain a real estate license (see Iowa license requirements)
- Apply for membership with the Cedar Rapids Area Association of REALTORS®
To become a member, the firm must be a member or join the association by completing an Application for Firm Membership and paying the firm membership fee of $750.00.
Everyone associated with the firm must also become a member by completing the Application for Realtor Membership and paying the REALTOR® membership fees.
The fees for a REALTOR® are on the CRAAR Price Brochure under New Member Information. If an applicant is interested in obtaining the Supra key & keybox system, they must pay the fees under Optional SentriLock Key System.
