The Silver City Regional Association of REALTORS® is a not-for-profit professional trade association. The National Association of REALTORS® issued the association's original charter in January of 1951. The organization has gone through several name changes over the years, finally determining that Silver City Regional best fit the member demographics. The territorial jurisdiction of SCRAR as granted by NAR includes Grant and Hidalgo counties. At present, membership also includes offices in Silver City, Cliff, Mimbres, and Reserve with several appraisal members statewide.
The Silver City Regional Association of REALTORS® and Multiple Listing Service has a membership of 22 REALTOR® offices, with 75 qualifying and associate brokers and 4 REALTOR® appraisers.
The REALTOR® organization is a "federation" or a "union" of organizations held together by the Three-Way Agreement, which provides a framework for effective communication, delivery of goods and services, and enforcement of the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. With this agreement, which forms the basis of the structure of the REALTOR® organization, the National Association grants each state and local association the right to control the terms "REALTOR®" and "REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®" within its territorial jurisdiction. It also permits associations to allow individuals who are qualified for membership to use the terms REALTOR® and REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®. In turn, the state associations and local boards and associations agree to:
accept the charge of properly granting and regulating the use of the terms "REALTOR®" and "REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®"
subscribe to and enforce the Code of Ethics of the National Association
This federated structure allows the REALTOR® organization to use its combined resources (both human and financial) and influence to have a unified, powerful voice in shaping public policy, set recognized standards for ethical real estate practice, and contribute to the betterment of the real estate industry.
The local association is the most visible and best-known component of the REALTOR® organization. It is at this level that members can actively participate on a regular basis and contribute to achieve common goals to better the industry.
The following list of activities provides a partial picture of a local association's function:
Provides the organization, administration, and execution of REALTOR® policy.
Provides a headquarters or "place" for REALTORS® to discuss plans and to implement policy in which they are in agreement.
Elects its leadership and selects its staff to execute final decisions.
Grants use of the terms REALTOR® and REALTOR-ASSOCIATE® to eligible members and ensures proper use of both terms.
Provides educational meetings and seminars on real estate topics.
Enforces the NAR Code of Ethics and provides an arbitration process for contractual disputes between REALTORS® and between REALTORS® and their clients. (A professional standards committee is charged with such responsibility, subject to provisions of the bylaws and to control by the board of directors.)
Is the collective voice of all its members, by virtue of electing--through democratic processes -- its officers and directors, by appointing REALTORS® and REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®s to its committees, by having membership meetings, and by entertaining suggestions and complaints.
Provides training in public service and organized real estate through service on committees and in elective positions.
Provides, through tested and proven service on the local association level, an opportunity for service on the state and national level.
Organizes and maintains the important function of cooperative business practices, such as a Multiple Listing Service.
Often provides a real estate library, training films and cassettes, standard business forms, advertising, publicity, public relations, and the opportunity for civic participation on behalf of the association and its members.
A local REALTOR® association can be a great force for the public welfare of any community, and it can be a tremendous service to and on behalf of its REALTOR® members.
