GNMLS Membership & Dues

Thinking about joining the Greater Northwoods MLS?  Only a Wisconsin-licensed firm that holds REALTOR membership may join our REALTOR-owned MLS.  If you are an agent practicing under a broker, you may not join by yourself; you may only operate under a managing broker (aka "Participant").

Here are the steps & requirements to join GNMLS:

  • REALTOR Member firm (brokerage or appraisal) with membership to any association of REALTORS
    • Please include letter of good standing from association for broker or appraiser and any agents applying to join
  • Costs:
    • $1000 initial fee per firm (sole proprietor, corporation, etc.)
    • $40* monthly per licensee** registered to firm and all branch offices within GNMLS service area***
      • Subscriber fees assessed for ALL licensees at participating offices regardless of whether licensees choose to participate in the MLS unless a waiver of dues has been granted. The GNMLS Brokerage Application includes an application for waiver.
    • If firm has branch offices outside GNMLS service area, those branches are not required to join (but can join without incurring additional $1000 fee  - just $40 for each licensee at branch office)
    • Appraisal offices pay for a single subscriber
  • Within 60 days of joining, all new subscribers must complete GNMLS Training (live or offline) - click here to register
