Become a WRA Member
The term "REALTOR®" is a registered trademark of the National Association of REALTORS® and is meant to identify a real estate professional who abides by a strict level of Code of Ethics in how their manage and operate their business. Our membership also includes business affiliate members who have interest in real estate.
The Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA) is part of a REALTOR® organization made up of local associations, state associations and the National Associations of REALTORS® (NAR). Membership in the entire organization at the local, state and national level is required to become a REALTOR®. However, dues are presented as one fee to be paid to the local association. As a REALTOR®, you gain exclusive access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Real estate professionals who are not member of their trade group do not have the same resources available to them.
The first step to become a REALTOR® member is to join your local board of REALTORS®. Each local board covers certain jurisdictional boundaries, however not all areas of the state are covered by a local board jurisdiction. You are required to be a member of a local board unless your office is located in "at large" territory. Under Wisconsin's Board of Choice system, sales agents may choose as their primary board any board in the state where the company has a Designated REALTOR® member. Membership dues and services vary at the local level, so you may want to shop around before joining a local board.
If you are not a real estate professional but are in a related industry, you can join the WRA as an affiliate member. To become an affiliate member, you must join a local board of REALTORS® and the WRA. Membership in the National Association of REALTORS® is not required under this membership type.
