REALTOR Member Center
Professional standards, continuing education and access to the Multiple Listing Service are among the top reasons that it pays to be a member of the local REALTOR® Family.
At the state level standard forms, meetings, networking and the legal hotline are sure bets. At the national level political advocacy, industry news and business support top the list.

REALTORS® are different from non-member licensees in that they voluntarily subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics. If you believe that a REALTOR® has violated one or more Articles of the Code of Ethics, you can file an ethics complaint alleging a violation(s) through the local association of REALTORS® where the REALTOR® holds membership, or participates in a REALTOR® association-owned/operated MLS.
Boards and associations of REALTORS® are responsible for enforcing the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics imposes duties above and in addition to those imposed by law or regulation which apply only to real estate professionals who choose to become REALTORS®.
The Assocation and MLS are always looking for volunteers. From Board members to special projects... we need your help!
Our election process gets under way each September and we are always looking for new Directors to serve on our two boards.
We have several special projects that we do each year that range from manning a booth at the Home & Garden Expo, to painting a newly constructed Habitat home, to putting together a float for the 4th of July Parade to setting up a fundraiser for charity.
We welcome your time and input. Give Kim a call today and volunteer!
REALTORS® Political Action Committee
What RPAC is all about?
Laws affecting the real estate business are passed every year, and many of these laws determine how we as real estate professionals do business and impact the profitability of our business. Each year RPAC supports political candidates who understand REALTOR® concerns and who support issues important to the real estate profession. RPAC is neither a Republican nor a Democratic organization. In fact, RPAC is the most bipartisan PAC in New Mexico and in the country today, supporting REALTOR® friends regardless of political party. Think of RPAC contribution as the best investment you can make in your business, community, future, and your family.
In other words…. RPAC is about REALTORS®
When considering whether to give to RPAC, please ask yourself these questions:
Is retaining the Mortgage Interest Deduction, which prevented real estate commissions from declining an estimated 13% or $7,350 for the average REALTOR® important to me?
Will the capital gains exclusion on the sale of a principal residence help my clients?
Is a 30 to 40 percent reduction in my NM Personal Income taxes important to me?
Will requiring lenders to commit good funds at time of closing be of benefit to my clients?
Is preventing a new added Transfer tax of up to 5% to the purchase price of a home a win for my client?
Is keeping the big banks out of real estate important to my business?
Is improving federal mortgage programs, allowing more families to join the ranks of homeownership important to this community?
These are all the things that RPAC has funded over the past few years at the state and national level.
Bottom Line.... Is any of this legislation worth $20 to me?
If you would like to make your contribution to RPAC contact your local RPAC Chair, the AE or your RANM RPAC Trustee.
“Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amount suggested is merely a guideline and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.”
