What is SMDRA?

The South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association (SMDRA) is the local chapter of the trade association known as the National Association of REALTORS®. There are three levels of REALTOR® Associations – local, state, and national. They work together to provide membership services, education, benefits and resources for REALTORS! SMDRA provides services for REALTORS® across the South Denver metro area – but our members work across the city, and often all over the state

Both REALTOR® and Affiliate Members pay yearly dues – which cover the cost of the member benefits and association services. When a REALTOR® joins, they join the local, state, and national association all at once, but when an Affiliate Member joins, they only join the local association, and only pay those dues. Affiliate Members can join multiple local associations – but have to pay dues to each one they join.

What is a REALTOR®?

Not all real estate agents are REALTORS® – but all REALTORS® are real estate agents! A real estate agent is someone who has earned their real estate license – the right to practice real estate in their state – A REALTOR® is an agent who has made the decision to subscribe to a higher professional standard and code of ethics by joining a REALTOR® Association and in turn, has access to REALTOR® only benefits and resources! REALTORS® on average produce more and close more deals a year than licensees

The term ‘REALTOR®’ is a registered trademark, and only members of a REALTOR® Association are allowed to use the word REALTOR® or the REALTOR® ‘R’ logo on their marketing.

Remember, ‘REALTOR®’ is only two syllables – ‘real-tor’ – not three!
You wouldn’t say ‘ac-a-tor’ or ‘doc-a-tor’, so why would you say real-a-tor?
