A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate salesperson who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, the largest trade group in the country.  REALTORS® are held to a higher ethical standard than licensed agents and must adhere to a Code of Ethics. All REALTOR® members must have an active Virginia Real Estate License from DPOR. Click here to apply for NVAR Membership.

Why Join NVAR?

NVAR is one of the premier Realtor® Associations in the country.  When you join your local association, you join a prestigious brand that tells your clients you are more than just an average real estate agent.  Realtors® abide by a code of ethics that sets them apart from a non-Realtor® salesperson, and are offered tools through their association to better help them succeed in real estate.
