The Emerald Coast Association of REALTORS® (ECAR) is part of a three-pronged system.  There are three distinct types of membership as a REALTOR®, and they all work together.  In order to call yourself a REALTOR®, you must belong to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).  In order to belong to NAR, you must belong to the state association (Florida REALTORS®) and the local association.  Because of a rule called “Board of Choice,” a REALTOR® can belong to any local association. ECAR is the local association to join in Northwest Florida – no other association compares.
