Before becoming a REALTOR®, you first must earn a real estate or appraiser license.

All North Carolina real estate professionals are licensed by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission (NCREC). All North Carolina appraisers are licensed by the North Carolina Appraisal Board.

Once you have your license, consider taking an extra step toward competence and professionalism by joining your local, state, and national Associations of REALTORS®. Then, and only then, may you legally use the term “REALTOR®” following your name, a symbol that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the REALTOR® family and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

If you have an active North Carolina real estate or appraisal license and are interested in becoming a REALTOR®, please contact the local board/association of REALTORS® nearest you for additional information on becoming a member.
