Hey new agents! Congratulations on passing the Real Estate Exam and getting your license! After passing the exam, your background checks should either be processing or has already processed. Kelly, our Designated Principle Broker, will pull your licensed to our brokerage. After the background checks and license-pulling are complete, you'll want to complete the items listed below in order...

1. PMAR (Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors)

Head over to to complete the PMAR application. You'll be able to pay the PMAR fees within the application and select the start date. 

2. NRDS # (Sent to the Agent Services Coordinator)

After that is complete, you'll receive a "Welcome" email within 24 hours or so. That email should have the NRDS# that is required for your RMLS Subscriber Form. Send that over to Austin either in an email or text and he can put it on the RMLS form for you.

His contact email:

3. RMLS (Regional Multiple Listings Service)

Once Austin has receive the NRDS# and has scanned the proper form to RMLS, it will then be a waiting game on RMLS's end. It usually takes 24-48 hours for them to put you into the system. When they are done, you'll get an email to pay the RMLS fees. If you're not getting the email, you can contact Austin, or you can contact them directly through their phone number (503) 236-7657. From past experiences, they are pretty quick to answer.


After the fees are paid, you'll then have access to RMLS and lockboxes! Let us know if you have any questions at that point so we can help make your first transactions as worry-free as possible!
