Become a Member

All of our membership options are hierarchical. The real estate firm and managing broker must establish membership with SSBR before anyone else in the firm may join. This also applies to MLS Only subscriptions. A broker with an independent level license must fill out an office application (even if the “office” is listed as the broker’s name) and pay the associated fees. Prior to granting membership we check licensing with DORA and REALTOR® membership through the National REALTOR® Database (NRDS) for all applicants. 

The steps listed below are for Primary Membership, but will only vary slightly for our different membership types. 

Once you have completed the licensing requirements through the State of Colorado you are eligible for REALTOR® membership with the Steamboat Springs Board  of REALTORS® (SSBR).

Hang your license with a broker that is a member of the Steamboat Springs Board of REALTORS®.

When you join a local Association such as the Steamboat Springs Board of REALTORS®, you are also joining the state and national REALTOR® Associations. Primary membership with SSBR means that your state and national dues are also paid to us and then we pass along this payment to the state and national levels.

Applicants for REALTOR® membership shall be granted provisional membership immediately upon submission of a completed application form and remittance of applicable association dues and application fee. Provisional members will be considered REALTORS® and shall be granted all of the same privileges and obligations of membership. Failure to complete the orientation program (including Code of Ethics training) within 6 months of the date of application will result in termination of provisional membership. You must reapply and your application will be processed as a new application.  The Principal Broker of your firm will then be assessed the dues in accordance with the Association's Bylaws.

Upon satisfactory completion of the orientation program and approval by the SSBR Board of Directors, membership in the Colorado Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS® (the world’s largest professional trade association) is granted. The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional as a member of NAR who subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

Applicants must complete the Application for REALTOR® Membership and submit. Please note that it may take up to 3 business days after receipt of all completed forms to process your paperwork and get you set up as a new member.

Secondary membership with SSBR means that you have primary membership with another local board in Colorado and your state and national dues are paid through them. Some individuals will choose to have their primary membership with one board and secondary membership at other boards so they can receive the benefits of membership from each local board. If the current year's Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR) and National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) dues have been paid through your primary association/board, then only the application fee and SSBR local dues apply. Dues will be prorated based on the month you join.
