Joining RIAR

How To Join RIAR as a Primary Member

If you’d like to become a Member of the Rhode Island Association of REALTORS, you must first join your local real estate board. Membership in a local association automatically extends your membership to the state association and the National Association of REALTORS.

The Designated REALTOR of a firm has board of choice. Board of choice allows the Designated REALTOR the choice of which local board to join with primary membership. Whichever local board the Designated REALTOR has his/her primary membership with is the local board that all licensees’s who hang their license in that office must join as their primary board.

We have 5 local boards in the state of Rhode Island:
