Become a GFWAR Member

The Greater Fort Worth Association of REALTORS® offers many different classes of membership. Members of the Association pay dues to the Association for access to a multitude of highly sophisticated and valuable products and services, which are either free or fee-based.

 

REALTOR® Membership

As an organization under the auspices of the National Association of REALTORS®, GFWAR is required to offer REALTOR® membership only to those who are licensed real estate professionals and whose sponsoring broker is a REALTOR® member at GFWAR or another REALTOR® Association. Membership into GFWAR also includes membership into the Texas Association of REALTORS® (TAR) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). (Members do not have the option to cancel their state or national membership.) Upon becoming a member of GFWAR, members stay active by paying annual dues.

The procedure to become a REALTOR® member is efficient and easy. The first step is to determine that a license is active on the TREC Web site. To check this, visit www.trec.state.tx.us and click on "Licensee Info Search."

Next, a new member appointment must be scheduled with GFWAR. New member appointments are sessions in which a GFWAR staff member meets one-on-one with the new member to set up that person's account and give a brief overview of GFWAR. New member appointments generally last about 45 minutes. To sign-up for a new member appointment, notify GFWAR by calling Meghan Sheehan at 817-336-5165, ext. 102, or This email address is being protected from spambots.

GFWAR requires that all those interested in membership submit an application and recommends that applications be completed beforehand and brought with the applicant. If this is inconvenient, applications may be filled out at the Association immediately before the new member appointment.

  • Cost Break – SCR members receive admission to monthly breakfast meetings, installations and various other events at a reduced fee. In addition, SCR offers price reductions for SCR sponsored classes and merchandise from the REALTOR® store.
  • REALTOR® Name – Because SCR is under the umbrella of GFWAR, its members adhere to the ethical and professional standards that all REALTOR® members follow. Therefore, the REALTOR® name gives credibility and accountability to all SCR members.
  • Professional Development – With opportunities available to serve on committees and on the Board of Governors, SCR provides its members a means to develop their leadership and professional skills. In addition, awards of merit are given to those members who exemplify these skills. GFWAR also offers professional development opportunities to prepare members for leadership on the local, state and national levels.
  • Professional Standards – Since all REALTORS® must adhere to the NAR Code of Ethics, it's the duty of GFWAR to educate its members regarding this ethical code and administer a course of action to those who do not comply. SCR falls under this standard, keeping "law and order" among practitioners.
  • REALTOR® Benefits – Members of SCR receive REALTOR® benefits such as free legal consultation and advice, marketing tools, entry into discount programs, and forms and contracts provided by NAR and TAR.
