I am a North Carolina or Georgia REALTOR® who does business in South Carolina …
If you are a primary member of the North Carolina REALTORS® or the Georgia Association of REALTORS®, you are not by default a member of the South Carolina REALTORS®.
What if I have a South Carolina Real Estate License? …
Remember, having a real estate license is not the same thing as being a REALTOR® member.
A real estate agent has to pay an annual fee for his or her license every couple of years. This is handled in South Carolina by the Real Estate Commission (LLR) which is a government agency.
We are in no way affiliated with the Real Estate Commission, and we are not a government agency. Therefore, even with though you may hold a South Carolina license, that does not automatically make you a REALTOR® member in South Carolina.
How does REALTOR® membership work? …
REALTOR® membership is comprised of three different levels:
When you joined your local association, you also became a member of that state’s association and a member of the national association. A portion of the dues you pay goes to each of these associations.
You can opt to join other local or state associations as a secondary member, however you will have to pay dues directly to those boards in order to join them.
Many Georgia and North Carolina REALTORS® who do business in both states join us as secondary members so they can have access to our website, and the South Carolina zipForm® library, along with all our other member benefits.
How can I join the South Carolina REALTORS® as a Secondary Member? …
If you hold your primary membership in a different state, you are eligible to join SCR as a secondary member. This only requires you to pay South Carolina state dues since you already paid your NAR dues through your primary association.
If you are interested in becoming a Secondary Member, fill out and submit the application below. For questions, please contact our Director of Member Services – Lindsey Pittman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
