Benefits Of Membership

PMAR Benefits of Membership

We know you have a choice of which Association you belong to, and we’re honored you’ve chosen to belong to PMAR. We are the largest community of Realtors® in the Portland Metropolitan area. Together we do big things!

NAR's Value for Realtors®

The National Association of REALTORS® works tirelessly to serve members, protect the rights of property owners, and advance the real estate profession. Find out what NAR does for you.


PMAR works closely with elected officials to make sure new and existing laws and ordinances do not adversely affect your business, and we monitor and advocate on a broad range of issues including sign codes, taxes, and land use. Learn about what we’re currently working on.


The Professional Standards and Grievance Committees have pledged to educate members on the Realtor® Code of Ethics, to investigate and assess all complaints, and to ensure all parties are treated fairly. PMAR has also established Best Practices, which promote ideals of courtesy and professionalism to strive for in the course of business activity. Our Ombudsman program is designed to help buyers, sellers, and their Realtors® resolve minor disputes before they escalate.



We offer numerous continuing education and networking opportunities for you to improve your professional skills, including:

  • Annual fall education luncheon with a renowned speaker.
  • The PMAR Masters Circle, an organization established under PMAR that recognizes dedication, experience, and achievement. 
  • In-depth Realtor® Code of Ethics training led by experienced real estate brokers.
  • Law & Rule Required Course.
  • Low-cost webinars offer you continuing education credit without having to leave your office!
