Becoming a Realtor®

You’ve decided to pursue a career in real estate. What’s your next move? A Virginia salesperson’s license is only part of the equation. You want to be the trusted professional that buyers and sellers rely on for their most significant investment.

Become a Realtor®.

Realtors® aren’t just licensed agents. They’re professional members of the National Association of Realtors® and subscribe to its strict code of ethics. The Virginia licensure requirements are listed below. But once you’ve completed that process, you’ll want to become a Realtor® and make NVAR your local association. Understand the Realtor® difference.
