Join PRO

Membership

The broker in your new office determines whether or not they wish to hold membership at the Pinellas Realtor® Organization. When he/she elects to hold membership, you are also required to have membership at PRO. If your broker has membership at another board in addition to membership at PRO, you have “board of choice” and can choose which board to join.

Realtor® membership is three-tiered. Members of PRO also belong to Florida Realtors® (FR) and to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR). A Realtor® may be a licensed Real Estate Salesperson (or Agent), Broker, or Appraiser. Realtors® belonging to PRO must be licensed by the State of Florida.
