Tips for when you have decided to join Bay East.
Secondary REALTOR® / MLS Membership
If you are a member of another Association of REALTORS® as your primary choice, you can still be a member of Bay East. Your only cost is the Bay East annual membership dues, because your C.A.R. and NAR dues were included in your primary association's fees.
MLS Only Membership
For agents only needing MLS access there are MLS Only memberships. These memberships do not include any REALTOR® benefits.
Cooperating/Reciprocal Key Membership
If you are an active Supra® keyholder through one of our data share partners (MLSListings, MetroList, BAREIS, Sandicor, CRMLS), this membership is for the sole purpose of accessing lockboxes in the Bay East key coverage areas.
Affiliate Members and Platinum Affiliate Members shall be real estate owners and other individuals or firms engaged in activities related to the real estate profession who do not qualify for REALTOR® membership. Affiliate members have interests requiring information concerning real estate, and are in sympathy with the objectives of Bay East.
Our Platinum Membership has been designed to heighten the exposure of an Affiliate member who wishes to be more active within Bay East. This membership level offers eligibility to participate on a Bay East task force, committee, or one of our local marketing boards.
Clerical members are individuals under the direct supervision of a Bay East MLS member. They can only perform MLS administrative and clerical tasks that don’t require a real estate license or appraiser’s certification or license.
Bay East / C.A.R. Honorary / NAR Emeritus Membership
Bay East / C.A.R. Honorary and NAR Emeritus memberships are granted to REALTOR® members with a history of outstanding service to Bay East, and have received a unanimous vote by the Board of Directors while a quorum is present. For more information about these memberships, contact Julia.
