MLS Only Memberships

A Real Estate agent is permitted to perform real estate business in California when the following requirements are met:

  • Properly licensed through CalBRE
  • Employed by a licensed Broker in California

An agent may choose three ways to handle his/her business. Become a Realtor® member by joining a local Association of Realtors and NAR/CAR, join as MLS only, or not be a member at all.

Real Estate Broker Services Inc. (CalBRE 01900990) is specifically for agents who want to join as an MLS only member, or not to be member of any association or MLS while keeping an active license with a Broker. However, if you have an interest to obtain Realtor® status, please click on this link for more information

Real Estate Broker Services Inc. is a member of most Multiple Listing Services (MLS) in California. As our agent, you can join an MLS with an MLS only status where the broker holds a membership. With this status you will have access to the MLS to list and view properties, as well as the key and Lock Box system for that MLS.

Advantages of having MLS only status:
  1. An MLS only option is ideal for many agents who want to save hundreds of dollars on Local Association, CAR, and NAR dues while still having access to most if not all of the tools you need for a successful business.
  2. You will avoid the possibility of being penalized by CAR and/or Local Association of Realtors for not complying with membership regulations.
Disadvantages of having MLS only status:
  1. Without a membership to a local Association of REALTORS®, you are not permitted to use the REALTOR® designation and logo.
  2. As an MLS only member you will not have access to the CAR Zipforms online library. However, you can purchase the desktop or online version of the CAR Zipforms system, or obtain preprinted forms directly from a Local Association of Realtors and/or CAR without being a member. Alternative real estate forms are acceptable and can be obtained online or through our Transaction Coordinator.
  3. You will not have direct access to the CAR legal hotline. However, if you have a legal issue, please contact our office and we will assist you.

Please contact your preferred MLS directly for information on lockbox and key access, as well as their coverage area. Each MLS sets their own fees so you will need to contact them directly to get a quote.

You can only join an MLS where we have a membership. The membership must be obtained through the Association that the Broker obtains his access.
