Your dues dollars support programs that enhance the level of professionalism through the Code of Ethics enforcement and through the educational opportunities available. They help support the strengthening of the REALTOR® brand to help you gain consumer confidence, and give us the ability to develop and offer the tools you need to be successful. Your dues also help the REALTOR® voice be heard at the local, the state, and the federal level of government so that home ownership can continue to be a realistic dream, and not encumbered by undue fees or regulations.
