The managing broker in your new office determines whether or not they wish to hold membership in the REALTOR® Association. When he/she elects to hold membership, you are also required to have REALTOR® membership. We do not mandate membership, however, should you elect not to join, your managing broker will be assessed a fee for having a non-REALTOR® licensee in his/her office. We suggest you speak directly with your managing broker about REALTOR® membership.
REALTOR® membership is three-tiered. Members also belong to their state REALTOR® Association and to the National Association of REALTORS®. FCBR’s state association is the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR). A REALTOR® may be a licensed Real Estate Broker, Managing Broker or Appraiser. REALTORS® belonging to the Fort Collins Board of REALTORS® must be licensed by the State of Colorado.

Transferring Memberships or Re-instating Memberships
Affiliate membership is comprised of people involved in a business related to real estate but who are not a licensed Real Estate Broker, Managing Broker or Appraiser. They may not join NAR and become a REALTOR® but they may join FCBR as an affiliate member. The above named licensees may not join as affiliate members but must join FCBR as a REALTOR®.
