MCAR Membership

The Monterey County Association of REALTORS® offers three different types of membership: Designated REALTOR®, REALTOR® and Affiliate. Members of the Association pay dues to the Association for access to a multitude of highly sophisticated and valuable products and services, which are either free or fee-based.

REALTOR® - Agent in the office

Brokers and Salespersons who hold an active real estate license are entitled to the Monterey County Association of REALTORS®. Salespersons must first affiliate themselves with a Broker. When an individual joins MCAR – the Local Association., they also become members of the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R..) and the National Association of REALTORS® (N.A.R.). Only those real estate licensees who hold membership in these Associations and who subscribe to their strict Code of Ethics are permitted to use the registered trademark of REALTOR®. All three levels of the REALTOR® organization – Local, State and National are here to help you succeed as a real estate professional. Just as you serve your clients, the REALTOR® organization exists to support its members.

DESIGNATED REALTOR® - Broker of Office

Each firm must designate a Designated REALTOR® (broker of office) who will be responsible for all of the duties and obligations of licensees associated with the Designated REALTOR®, including the obligation to arbitrate disputes pursuant to Article 17 of the Code of Ethics and to pay Association dues as established in the Bylaws. The Designated REALTOR® must be a sole proprietor, partner, corporate officer or branch office manager of the firm capable of acting on behalf of the firm’s principal(s) and must meet the other qualifications for REALTOR® membership established in the Bylaws. The Designated REALTOR® must be actively engaged in the real estate profession, and maintain a current, valid real estate broker’s license or be licensed or certified by an appropriate State regulatory agency to engage in the appraisal of real property.
