Loc: California

I recently got my salesperson licence and I signed up with an online real estate broker. I'm not sure which real estate memberships to sign up for... I'm in California and there's a CAR (state), NAR, SDAR (local), Mls, keycard... all these memberships add up to more than 1K per year. As a new agent, which membership is necessary to operate???

Also, when I buy/sell houses I will need all kinds of forms (example: residential purchase agreement, etc.), where will I be able to obtain these forms? Will my broker provide these forms or I will have to pay someone else to get it?? Sorry for the silly questions but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ;)

First, ask your Online broker the same questions as you've asked on this forum. Use Win forms, it's the only way to fill out the various forms. Have you been taught how to fill out the Listing contract and the different disclosures? This business is about selling, selling, selling, selling and selling, then being a Realtor. I was with two different Online brokers there in California and there was a huge difference between the two. If you want more help, P.M. me.

Best of luck.

BabyBoss I am in Los Angeles, CA. If there is anything I can help you with let me know. When you join your local board of realtors you will pay for CAR and NAR at the same time. The majority of MLS's in the state have a reciprocal agreement so you do not have to join more than one to have access to most of the state. Your California Association of Realtors membership comes with your forms. Membership Perk.
It is usually a better idea to start with a physical office and a broker available to help you until you feel you can fly on your on. Online outfits are more for those agents that do not need much support since they usually do not provide any.
You are in business for yourself so get started learning as much as you can about your new business. Good Luck.
