Affiliate members are individuals or firms who have an interest in acquiring
information and knowledge concerning real estate, and/or providing ancillary services to real estate professionals. A few examples of affiliate members are: home inspectors, landscapers, builders, appraisers, lenders, attorneys, title companies, banks, plumbers, movers, companies and mortgage insurance companies.
Affiliates members are not themselves engaged in the real estate profession and may not use the trademark “R” symbol or call themselves REALTORS. Affiliates do not vote on committees or hold elective office. They do, however, support the mission and purpose of REALTORS, attend membership meetings and events, and often volunteer to service on committees to further the goals of the organization.
