You must be eligible to become a REALTOR®
When your office is a REALTOR® office, in Snohomish County, all licensed brokers are required to be REALTORS®. If your office is not a REALTOR® office, you are not eligible join a REALTOR® association. Your broker franchise chooses to be a REALTOR® office or not.
Which association do you want to join?
You should choose an association which will represent your business. By having your membership at this association you are supporting our Government Affairs department and the real estate issues in Snohomish County and Camano Island.
If your office is located in Snohomish County or on Camano Island your first choice should be SCCAR.
If your office is located outside of Snohomish County or Camano Island and you prefer to work mostly in our area you may want to join our association. In order to use the board of choice option, your broker, manager, and/or owner must be a member of our association or you may join your office's 'local association' and join our association as a 'secondary member.' Your broker, manager, and/or owner must be a member of the same 'primary association' as you because the 'primary association' needs to have the authority to conduct an ethics hearing on your behalf, if a complaint is lodged against you.
