Why Join?

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.  

Did you know that the average real estate transaction takes upwards of 230 steps?  NVAR has gathered all of the tools and resources that can be used to complete these steps and narrowed them down into 8 categories we now call Shop Realtor®.  In this one-stop-shop, we have re-framed NVAR products and services to create ease of access in a way that better aligns with the way you do business.
