Membership Information

The Minnesota REALTORS® is part of a three-tiered organization. The three tiers are composed of a local, state, and national association. 

For a list of benefits Minnesota REALTORS® provides, click here.

​Primary Membership: To become a REALTOR® member, you are required to join all three levels of the Organization. To apply for REALTOR® membership in an Association, you must be affiliated with a broker who also holds REALTOR® membership. An agent can join the local association in which their broker (or office manager, for multiple offices) is a member, either primarily or secondarily. For example, if a broker holds primary membership with the Minneapolis Association, and secondary membership with the St. Paul association, then the agent can join either of those two local associations. As a broker, you can choose membership of any local association, regardless of where your office is located. Primary membership is handled by the local association. For a list of local associations, please click here. Local dues vary, but Minnesota dues are $185/year; and National dues are $185/year. Dues at all levels are prorated monthly for new members*. 

Secondary Membership: If you are already a REALTOR® member in another state, and want to join Minnesota REALTORS®, you can join as a Secondary Member. Secondary Members receive the same benefits as Primary Members, such as access to Forms. Dues are $185/year - prorated monthly for new members*.

NOTE: You must hold a Minnesota Real Estate License to join as a Secondary Member.
