Whether you’re trying to advance in your career, become the expert in a particular segment of the real estate industry, or learn from like-minded real estate professionals, NC REALTORS® offers multiple specialty areas to meet your needs. Following are NC REALTORS® specialty divisions.

Member Benefits

  • Educational Meetings: PMD hosts two workshops every year to update REALTORS® on new developments in real estate legislation, with particular emphasis on property management. PMD members pay a modest registration fee to attend, while non-members are charged a higher fee per seminar.
  • Legislative Participation: NC REALTORS® employs a full-time legislative lobbyist and regulatory specialist to represent the professional interest of REALTORS® in state government. Through membership in PMD, you gain access to our lawmakers and can have input in the direction of new real estate legislation.
  • Property Management Legal Handbook: The Property Management Legal Handbook is a basic summary of laws regulating and affecting the management of rental property in North Carolina. The Handbook is designed to be read and understood by non-lawyers, with footnotes citing relevant statutes, regulations and cases appearing at the end of most sections. An appendix contains the up-to-date text of all NC statutes cited in the Handbook. Although the emphasis is on residential tenancies, many of the same laws and regulations apply to commercial leases also. The Handbook is updated periodically to help keep property managers abreast of ever-changing laws. All PMD members receive the latest revised edition of the Handbook, and all current members are sent revisions as they occur.
  • Statewide Professional Contacts: Through PMD membership, you’ll become acquainted with property managers across the state. You’ll not only benefit from business referrals, but you’ll develop an informal network of professionals with whom you can discuss specific problems. And contact with other property management firms may even present opportunities for career advancement.
