HRRA works for you. Many services are available at no cost. All you have to do is show up!
Networking - The networking and education provided through council meetings, advisory groups and other events are valuable assets for many members. (Many members report that the value of the FREE legal advice received at just one REALTOR/Lawyer committee meeting far exceeds the annual dues amount!)
Economic & Advocacy Summit (formerly known as REALTOR Day on the Hill) - Every year, busloads of REALTORS® travel to Richmond during the General Assembly session to meet with legislators on the importance of real estate issues.
Education - HRRA's real estate school, Alpha College of Real Estate, has developed a number of continuing education programs, legal liability, risk reduction classes, Principles, and broker licensing courses. Rookies benefit from the new agent training program, QUICKSTART©, and all HRRA members have access to 3 hours of Ethics CE/PL at no cost. A great benefit of membership is the access to great education in your own backyard, no travel required. Alpha offers designation courses that other, smaller associations cannot afford to offer. Education is the key to success in real estate and HRRA has made sure its members have access to the best.
Public Relations - HRRA is featured regularly in local print (and sometimes broadcast) media. HRRA has partnered with the Virginian-Pilot to feature articles in the Saturday Home section. The "Realtors on Call", "Condo Conversations", and "Realtor Q&A" columns are open to any HRRA REALTOR® member who wishes to submit an article for consideration. (Contact Victoria Hecht for more details.)
Special Events - HRRA has events for members throughout the year which offer a chance to relax, meet colleagues, mingle with Affiliate Members, and have fun, including the Chili Cook-Off and Tailgate Party, YPN networking events, and the annual Wine & Cheese Social.
Recognition - Each year, HRRA recognizes professionals who have gone above and beyond for the Association, with Service Awards presented at the annual Installation Luncheon. HRRA also recognizes those members who have reached exceptional production levels with the Circle of Excellencesm Awards. These awards are recognized by the home buying public as a measure of success.
