About your "Dual" Membership
As a member of WAAR, you are also a member of The Kansas Association of REALTORS® and The National Association of REALTORS®.
NAR is known as “The Voice for Real Estate®,” and is also the world’s largest professional association. Founded in 1908, it has grown from its original nucleus of 120 to over 1.3 million members. As a NAR member, you are in the company of REALTORS® involved in residential and commercial real estate as brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers, counselors and others engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry.
KAR, founded in 1920, started with approximately 200 members divided among 7 boards. Although it has grown to over 10,000 members and 35 boards, KAR continues to help their members transition with the ever changing industry.
Working for America’s property owners, NAR and KAR provide a forum for professional development, research and the exchange of information among its members, the public, and government for the purpose of preserving the free enterprise system and the right to own and transfer ownership of real property.
