The Affiliates Council promotes business relationships and the services of the OABR Affiliates to REALTOR® members. The Council promotes the ethical business practices of all affiliate members. The affiliate membership provides resources and expertise in many areas supporting real estate transactions and ownership. The Council contributes the “Affiliate Spotlight”, a column in the REview Newsletter, sponsors the OABR new member orientation and provides networking and charity events throughout the year.
Affiliates support an individual and collective commitment to six Standards of Excellence and tend to be leaders in their fields of expertise. The Affiliates operate with an executive board consisting of the President, President-elect, Secretary, Treasurer and various committee chairs which meet monthly.
How To Join
If you have a desire to promote your business by supporting the real estate community and do not hold a license to sell real estate, an Affiliate membership is for you! Affiliate Members are professional friends of the Association that are generally involved in businesses related to the needs of the real estate industry. Affiliate members are not licensed as real estate brokers, agents or appraisers, but enjoy the benefits of increased opportunities for networking and exposure to the real estate community.
