New Member Welcome Packet

Welcome! 

We’re glad to have you as a member and look forward to being

your resource for the tools and information you need to succeed.

The information included in this packet will introduce some of the services available to you as a member of AAABoR. We invite you to read the items included and contact us if you have any questions, concerns and/or suggestions.

Once your membership is activated, youll receive a ‘Welcome’ e-mail that will contain your Rapattoni MLSUserName and Password (this will also be your AAABoR.comand SentriLock.com accountUserName and Password). 

The ‘Welcome’ e-mail will also contain your NRDS (National REALTORS® Data System) number. YourNRDS number is used by the National and State associations to track your membership, designations and education. Please use this number to set-up your account on www.REALTOR.org. We encourage you to become familiar with NAR’s website and the extensive resources available to you. 

We communicate almost exclusively by e-mail so PLEASE – if your e-mail address changes, notify us ASAP, so that we may continue to keep you informed.

Included on our website (www.AAABoR.com) are someimportant brochures to become familiar with. A REALTORS® Guide to Sign Ordinances in Washtenaw Countywas compiled by AAABoR and is intended to keep your signs (For Sale and Open Houses) from being removed and destroyed. The ordinances vary greatly from one township to the next. PLEASE – familiarize yourself with the ordinances in the areas you place signs. The full text of the ordinances is available on our website.

Another helpful brochure is theOn Your Mark” trademark brochure is written by the National Association of REALTORS® (owners of the trademark) and is a very handy guide for the proper use of the “R” and the term “REALTOR®”. Please refer to this BEFORE having cards, signs, stationary, etc. made. It can save you from needing to re-do any items that misuse the “MARKS”. 

Welcome REALTOR® 

We look forward to helping you succeed!
