Membership in the Hampton Roads REALTORS®  Association is the first step to real estate success! We offer tremendous opportunities to learn and earn more.

When you join the REALTOR® organization, you are joining one of the most powerful forces in Washington D.C. Everyday we vigilantly protect private property rights so that homeowners can realize the advantages of being a property owner and business owners can remain profitable creating jobs which in turn drives the demand for housing. We are a key player in formulating and/or influencing government policy regarding everything from Fair Housing to Fannie Mae. We also protect your pocketbook and increase your profitability through passage of laws that allow you to keep more income such as the recent 20% small business expense pass-through.

Your dues reflect dues for the local association, HRRA, the state association, Virginia REALTORS® (VAR) and the National association of REALTORS® (NAR). Our primary goal is your profitability and success through legislative advocacy, education and training, promoting the use of a REALTOR®, recognizing sales excellence, informing you of industry trends, and offering networking.

This requirement does not apply to applicants for REALTOR® membership or provisional members who have completed comparable orientation in another association, provided that REALTOR® membership has been continuous, or that any break in membership is for one year or less.”
