Payment Policy

As a member of the Arlington Board of REALTORS® (ARBOR), you acknowledge that it is your responsibility to pay all membership fees to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), Texas REALTORS® (TR), ARBOR, North Texas Real Estate Information Systems (NTREIS) Multiple Listing Service and Supra, where membership applies, by the due date(s), whether or not an e-bill was received.

Access for all unpaid memberships will be suspended once due dates have passed, and a reinstatement fee will be applied to your account. Reinstating members are not eligible for any proration or waiver of membership fees. If payment is still not received by the timeframe outlined in the governing documents, membership(s) will be terminated (see current year’s billing communications).

All payments must be made online via the Member Portal. Checks will only be processed online through our Member Portal e-check feature. Cash, money orders, and paper checks are not accepted.

Unreported Licensee Policy

Brokers, if you have a licensed agent who has joined your brokerage but has not joined ARBOR, that agent is considered an Unreported Licensee.

When ARBOR learns of an Unreported Licensee from TREC, we will automatically send the agent’s broker a courtesy notice. Upon receiving this notice, a broker has 30 days to resolve the Unreported Licensee on their account by having them join ARBOR as a Primary or Secondary REALTOR® member or terminating the agent’s sponsorship with TREC.

As a broker, failure to resolve an Unreported Licensee within the 30-day period will result in suspension of all services and a reinstatement fee will also be applied to the agents account at that time (See ARBOR Bylaws Article X).

Education, Professional Development, & Event Registration and Refund Policy

You are encouraged to register for a course or event at least two (2) business days prior to the class or event date using your member portal so we can prepare for your participation.

We understand that schedules change, and you may need to cancel a registration. Classes and events can be canceled and refunded by notification at least two (2) business days prior to the class or event. If you fail to cancel by the deadline, you will not be reimbursed for the registration fee. If you fail to show for a registered class/event, you may be assessed a no-show fee of $25. No refunds will be issued past the cancelation deadline.

Cancel by logging into your account at arlingtonrealtor.com or to cancel an event email membership@arlingtonrealtor.com or to cancel a class email education@arlingtonrealtor.com.

A member cannot transfer their registration to another member for classes or events. You may, however, transfer to a future date for the course being offered at no additional charge, up until the start time for that class.

If for any reason the class or event is canceled by ARBOR, you may receive a full refund or transfer to a new date it is being offered.

Walk-ins are permitted unless pre-registration is required or noted on the class/professional development advertisement or registration.
