As part of our top-notch service to our members, we've ensured that our local dues have not increased in more than 10 years. In addition, our dues are 100% tax deductible--something some other North Texas associations don't offer.

 

Communication is a key facet of the services you receive as a CCAR member:

Association members receive a Weekly Update e-newsletter which is jam-packed with real estate industry news and information that impacts our members' business. In addition, the Weekly Update makes sure members are in the know about news, events, and classes. A monthly Education Newsletter also provides members with detailed information about upcoming classes.

Through status updates, Tweets and discussion threads, CCAR's Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts provide followers with the latest happenings at the association and in the real estate industry.

Our active Government Affairs Department and committee monitor issues in Collin County and surrounding communities pertaining to real estate and private property rights, as well as works closely with City Councils on matters related to HOAs and REALTOR® and homeowners' rights. In addition, we actively interview candidates for City and County elections, and endorse those who understand the importance of private property and homeowner rights.

Our Association is an active participant in the Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee (TREPAC). The TREPAC investments our members make are used to communicate with legislators at the City, County, and State level regarding issues of interest to the real estate industry.

Through weekly columns, releasing local market stats, and ongoing media interviews, our team of trained communicators works hard on your behalf to show the true and positive picture of the North Texas real estate market.

 

As part of our commitment to quality member service, we make sure you have access to the tools you need, when you need them:

Our member website allows you 24/7 access to your account. Whether you need copies of your receipts for tax purposes, want to update your contact information, or register for classes, log on to www.ccar.net.

Almost daily MCE and MLS education classes, including many popular designation courses. Members also have 24/7 access to quality online education classes through CCAR's website, and CCAR also brings its classes to member Broker offices.

A full service REALTOR® Store at our Plano and North Dallas offices to meet all of your needs. No time to stop and shop? No problem, we bring the store to you!

And, members receive a discount on all of our REALTOR® Store merchandise--something not offered to members of other associations.

We know that REALTORS®are busy people and sometimes you can't be at a specific location on a specific day to get your MCE credit. That's why we offer mobile and online classes! You can log on 24/7 to www.ccar.net/online and take MCE classes from our partners Career WebSchool, Kaplan, and The CE Shop. Would you rather take a class at your Broker's office? Just let your Broker know what class you want, and we'll bring it you and your fellow agents!
