FORT WORTH TEXAS REAL ESTATE holds membership at both the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors and the Houston Association of Realtors. Our agents must maintain membership in a local board and you may join either of these OR both.
Local association membership has many benefits including (required) membership in the Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). All three groups lobby state and local government on behalf of the real estate industry and operate political action committees (PACS) to finance candidates and support legislation favorable to our industry.
On the local level your board administers the SUPRA service which allows you to access electronic key devices and supporting software. The Supra eKey system allows for secure access to listings by licensed agents and has many advantages over “combo” boxes which do not provide a record of who has accessed the listing. The local association also administers agent access to the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Continuing education is also offered regularly by the local association including some classes that qualify for MCE credit.
FWTRE agents are encouraged to consider actively participating in local board activities and leadership.
