Why be a REALTOR®

The Consumer Wants to Use a REALTOR®

A Career in Real Estate Provides Flexibility and Freedom.

Once you get your license, you can join a local REALTOR® board or association which makes you a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR).

The Benefits of Becoming a Colorado REALTOR®

Political Advocacy: CAR’s Government Affairs team works at the local, state and federal levels to help protect the industry and homeowner’s rights. CAR actively monitors legislation effecting the real estate industry, and promotes or defeats related initiatives.

Legal Resources: The REALTORS® Legal Hotline is a service which provides members of CAR with direct access to a qualified real estate attorney who can offer information on real estate law and related matters.

Market Research: We want to help you establish yourself as the market expert in your area. Our Statistics Program, fueled by Showing Time – a nationally-recognized market research firm, closely monitors and analyzes trends in the local and state real estate industry. We publish quarterly updates on facts and statistics that directly impact you and your clients.

Professional Development: Both NAR, CAR and its affiliated Institutes, Societies, and Councils offer professional designation programs in various real estate sectors. CAR also has a live webcast program featuring many different topics you can access at your convenience online 24-7.

Networking Opportunities: A wide array of networking opportunities, including educational meetings, conventions and special events that connect you with other real estate professionals and affiliated industry leaders at the local, state and national levels.

Consumer Awareness: Our ongoing public awareness campaigns have resulted in significant increase in consumer perception of the value that REALTORS® bring to the home buying process. Leverage the power of our advertising by putting the “R” logo on your business card and wearing your REALTOR® pin.
