    What is a REALTOR®?

    A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® who is required to abide by a strict Code of Ethics. The term REALTOR® is a registered trademark of the National Association of REALTORS®, and misuse of the term is a trademark violation. To become a REALTOR®, a person who holds a real estate license may join their local REALTOR® Association, which makes them automatically a member of the State and National Associations.

    How do I become a REALTOR®?

    Before becoming a REALTOR®, you first must earn a real estate license. All North Carolina real estate professionals are licensed by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission (NCREC).

    If you have an active North Carolina real estate 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.

    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.

    To join, ask your broker which local association of REALTORS® he or she belongs, then contact that local board for an application and additional instructions.

    What is the NC REALTORS®?

    NC REALTORS® (registered as The North Carolina Association of REALTORS® with the Secretary of State) is a trade association dedicated to providing members with opportunities and resources that help them do their jobs better. Our mission statement is succinct: “To promote the success of our members and enhance the Quality of Life in North Carolina.” The headquarters office is located at 4511 Weybridge Lane in Greensboro and can be reached at 336-294-1415.

    What is the North Carolina Real Estate Commission?

    The North Carolina Real Estate Commission (“Commission”) is an independent state governmental agency. The Commission’s primary function is to license and regulate real estate agents (persons and firms who sell, lease, etc. real estate for others). North Carolina’s 80,000-plus real estate agents are licensed as brokers. The Commission office is located at 1313 Navaho Drive in Raleigh and can be reached at 919-875-3700.

    When the NC REALTORS® was incorporated in the mid-1930s, there were approximately 135 members in 10 local Boards representing: Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, High Point, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Salisbury, Wilmington and Winston-Salem.

    Today, thanks to the tremendous growth both in the state’s population and in the number of licensed REALTORS® – to 54,000 – there are 45 local boards within the state. While the local boards operate independently of NC REALTORS®, we are proud and appreciative of our relationship with them in advancing the REALTOR® cause.
