What benefits do I receive as a REALTOR® member?
Benefits of membership include using the trademark “REALTOR®”, as well as the ability to utilize MLS, lockbox systems, TransactionDesk®, and eSign®. Members can also take advantage of discounts through NAR, AAR, and WeSERV. As a REALTOR®, you are part of an industry that values, and pledges to abide by, the NAR Code of Ethics. To lodge a complaint against another REALTOR®, contact AAR at 602.248.7787.
All three Associations are political advocates for their members and work toward protecting the real estate industry and related policies. Each Association offers a variety of benefits to help you in your business and personal life. You will find benefits offered by NAR at www.nar.realtor
, AAR at www.aaronline.com
, and WeSERV at www.weserv.realtor
Do I have to take a Code of Ethics class?
Every REALTOR® is required by NAR to take a Code of Ethics (COE) class every cycle. Cycles are two years in length. The current cycle began January 1, 2019 and ends December 31, 2020. New WeSERV members are required to complete a COE class within their first year of membership. We ask that you take a COE class within the first 90 days. You are not considered a REALTOR® until you have completed the Code of Ethics and will hold a “Pending” membership status. Once you attend and submit your COE completion certificate, we'll record your fulfillment and update your membership status to “Active.” You then will be added to the WeSERV Member Directory on www.weserv.realtor
Does WeSERV offer education classes?
Yes, WeSERV offers a variety of continuing education (CE), designation/certification, and specialty classes. We also have a relationship with three online CE schools. You can find our schedule of classes and events at www.weserv.realtor
under the “Calendar” tab. Click on any date on the calendar to see what is scheduled on that day. You can also search for class names or continuing education credit. Register for classes through the “Register For This Event” link toward the top of the detail page or according to the information listed in the class details. You will also find information regarding education offered at WeSERV, the online CE schools, the Code of Ethics, and ADRE education requirements under the “Education” tab.
How do I get involved in volunteer councils or committees?
Simply contact the liaison for the committee in which you would like to participate or come to a meeting. Meeting dates and times are listed on the Event Calendar at www.weserv.realtor
