WHY USE A REALTOR®?

Buying a home may be the biggest purchase of your life. Selling or purchasing a home takes professional expertise, local knowledge and care throughout the process.

  • A REALTOR® is different from a real estate licensee. REALTORS® belong to the National Association of REALTORS® where they adhere to the NAR’s Code of Ethics which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. It insures that consumers are served by requiring REALTORS® to cooperate with each other in furthering clients' best interests.

  • The National Association of REALTORS® is America's largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members, including NAR's institutes, societies, and councils, involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

  • REALTORS® are subject to disciplinary action and sanctions if they violate the duties imposed by the Code of Ethics.

  • Non-REALTORS®, are not bound to any code of ethics as they are not members of the National Association of REALTORS®.

  • Before engaging the services of a real estate professional, ask if he or she is a REALTOR®

WHY NEW HAMPSHIRE AND THE UPPER VALLEY REGION

New Hampshire is also called the “Granite State” which refers to the extensive granite formations and quarries. Our state motto is “Live Free or Die”. We are bordered by Vermont to our West, Maine to our North, Massachusetts to our South and the Atlantic Ocean to our East.


 

NH offers many recreational activities such as hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, boating, mountain biking and golf to name a few. Our Fall Foliage season draws many tourists to our towns to take in the beautiful views. There is something for everyone here in New Hampshire!


 

“Upper Valley,” a distinctive region that at its heart includes towns twinned on opposite banks along a roughly 40-mile stretch of the Connecticut River: from Windsor, Vermont, and Cornish, New Hampshire, in the south to Bradford, Vermont, and Piermont, New Hampshire, in the north. Formal attractions are few, but you’ll find river landings, many farm stands, and frequent unexpected discoveries...providing the true New Hampshire experience!

NEW AFFILIATE MEMBERS
  • Thank you for your interest in becoming an Affiliate of the Upper Valley Board of REALTORS®.

  • As an Affiliate you will receive educational and training opportunities, and notice of Membership Meetings.

  • These meetings are an ideal place to meet your fellow Affiliates and REALTORS® in the Upper Valley Region.

  • You will also be invited to participate in the UVBR Affiliates Committee where you and other Affiliates’s can meet to discuss issues important to the relationship between Affiliates and REALTORS®.

 

BENEFITS OF BECOMING AN AFFILIATE MEMBER

Affiliate Minute:

  • During a regular membership meeting, two Affiliates’s are given the opportunity to tell the membership about the business services they offer.

  • This is exactly 60 seconds long and you will be asked to come up to the podium in order to deliver a one minute message about your company.

Affiliate Greeter:

  • During membership meetings an Affiliate will be the person at the registration table greeting each member as they enter the room, checking them in and collecting fees.

  • This person may hand out business cards and/or collect business cards from the membership. It is expected you will arrive at the meeting a little before 8AM to be ready as members will begin arriving at 8:30AM.

Affiliate Educational Sponsorships:

  • This is one or two Affiliates’s who check in the members during an educational class. The Affiliate(s) will each be given a minute at the beginning of the class to talk about them, their company, specific program etc. (*Typically you will want to show up a little after 8AM in order to set up before members start arriving around 8:30.)

  • The Affiliate is welcome to stay for the entire class, in fact it can be beneficial to stay so that when the REALTORS® take breaks, you are there to network and socialize with the group. But again not a requirement.
