Become a NWAR REALTOR or Affiliate Member

NWAR REALTOR Membership:

GNMLS Membership:  If you are already a REALTOR Member of another local association and are just seeking to join Greater Northwoods Multiple Listing Service, please CLICK HERE to read about GNMLS membership.

Before proceeding with the steps to join the Northwoods Association of REALTORS®, you must have a valid real estate or appraisal license; we cannot process any applications without proof of your active license.   For details about how to complete the required training and testing to become a licensed salesperson or broker, please visit WRA.org and go to Education -> Careers.   Deeply discounted online pre-license education courses are available through NWAR - contact us at 715-356-3400 for more information.

Once you receive your real estate license in the mail, you may proceed with the following steps:

  • If you are working for a broker/firm, confirm that your broker has sent in your Notice of Real Estate Employment Form (#812) to the Wisconsin Department of Safety & Professional Standards.
  • Download the NWAR Membership Application (PDF).
  • Complete the NWAR application and view the REALTOR Membership dues table below to determine your dues total according to the month you are joining.
    • NOTE:  Annual membership renewal statements are mailed in September each year.  If you are joining NWAR in September or later, you will be sent a renewal statement for the following year soon after joining.  The annual dues renewal amount (if unchanged by NAR/WRA/NAR) are the January total below minus the NWAR and WRA initiation fees that only apply when joining (or renewing after the 12/31 annual deadline).
  • Attach check or money order (payable to "NWAR") to the application. Please be aware that there are no refunds for dues once you have been accepted as a Member.
  • Mail, fax, or bring in the completed NWAR Membership Application with payment, a copy of your real estate license (license search here), and copy of the 
    Notice of Real Estate Employment Form (#812) signed by your broker to:

  • NWAR staff  will contact you with your National Association of REALTORS® ID (aka NRDS ID) number, MLS ID, and instructions to register with NAR, WRA, ZipForms and (if applicable) SentriLock.
  • All new REALTOR Members are required to complete the following within 90 days of joining (or as noted):
    • Complete REALTOR Orientation half-day class (3rd Monday morning monthly)
