Individuals must have no record of official sanctions involving unprofessional conduct and no recent or pending bankruptcy.
An individual engaged in business allied to real estate, but who does not hold an active real estate license is eligible for Affiliate membership. Affiliate members have interests in real estate related information, are in sympathy with the objectives of ABoR, and may benefit from ABoR activities. The first person from a firm joins as a Corporate Affiliate, and other staff within that firm may then join as Individual Affiliates. Corporate affiliate status includes membership in the Austin Board of REALTORS® and Texas Association of REALTORS®. Individual affiliate status provides membership in the Austin Board of REALTORS® only.
