Congratulations on Embarking on a New, Exciting and Profitable Career!
Go to the Why Join Us page to see why you should be a member of BAR and the cost of dues for both BAR memberships and MLS dues!
The very first thing you need to do is to accept BAR as a Safe Sender- follow the directions in your orientation book- it can be accessed here
It is critical you read the emails sent to you from BAR and GALMLS- these emails contain our newsletter with tons of tips on free tech and starting up your business along with important information such as outages, educational offerings and dues billing.
Real estate is a people to people business. Networking with your fellow REALTORS® is critical to your success. At minimum you should be attending one association event per quarter to build your professional sphere. If you join in 2020 you will receive a series of videos one per month to keep your career on track- watch them!
Watch the NAR video so you understand your national benefits.
Next visit the Center for Financial Wellness- your dues dollars have paid for this phenomenal program which will track and enhance your financial success in real estate from the beginning of your career to the end. Next, you will want to visit the field guides which are designed to teach you the business (not your particular brokerage practices or Alabama law but basics such as marketing, etc. ) https://www.nar.realtor/library-archives/references
Make sure you take your post-license class with BAR or any other certified real estate school.
Best of Luck!
