Membership

Holding a real estate license does not make someone a REALTOR®.  The main distinction of a Realtor® from someone who's merely licensed by the state to sell real estate is the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.  Becoming an ECAR REALTOR® means you are committed to continuing education, professionalism and integrity.

With your REALTOR® membership, you are privileged to all the rights and benefits of all three levels of the organization:

  1. Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS®
  2. Florida Association of REALTORS®
  3. National Association of REALTORS®

.

 

Types of Members

Primary Member

- An individual is a primary member of ECAR if they pay local, state and national dues through ECAR. New member dues apply. Orientation is required.

Secondary Member

- An individual is a secondary member if they pay current state or national dues through another Association/board. A Letter of Good Standing is required from your primary association/board. The New Member Orientation class will be waived provided you have completed the New Member Orientation class with your current association/board in the State of Florida (this must be stated in the Letter of Good Standing).

Transferring Member

- An individual is a transferring member if they have paid their current state or national dues through another association/board for the current year and are transferring their primary membership to ECAR. A Letter of Good Standing is required from your primary association/board. The New Member Orientation class will be waived provided you have completed the New Member Orientation class with your current association/board in the State of Florida (this must be stated in the Letter of Good Standing).

Reinstating Member

- An individual is a reinstating member if they were a prior member of ECAR and has not been inactive with the association for more than 18 months. Orientation is not required.

Appraiser

- This is an individual who is a Certified General or Certified Residential Appraiser. If an appraiser also has a current/active real estate license, then the real estate license takes precedence over the appraiser license for ECAR. Membership would be the same as above, whichever applies.

Affiliate Member

-  These members (Power Partners) play a vital role in the support of the Realtor® community through educational events, informative forums, charitable activities and contributions that promote and enhance the Emerald Coast community.
