REALTOR® is a trademark of the National Association of REALTORS®. Membership in the Southern Maryland Association is not only open to real estate agents holding an active real estate license who want to take advantage of our many perks but also others who are interested in our perks of membership and getting involved in our growing association.

LockBox

SentriLock

SMAR was the first in the region to offer the Sentrilock electronic lock box system. You'll find information on fees, accessories, FAQ's and an online request to transfer ownership of a lock box to another owner.

Perks

REALTOR® membership comes with many perks. Be sure to get familiar with what you receive as part of your membership. It includes real estate forms, partner discounts, legal advice, ethics enforcement and more!

Forms

Forms

Real estate forms are used for writing real estate contracts or to assist in the process of completing a real estate transaction. The majority are published by a number of REALTOR® sources and are made available only to SMAR, MAR or NAR members - a HUGE member benefit!

Committee Meeting

Committees

Member involvement is essential to the mission of SMAR. Our members bring a wealth of talent and experience to the day to day operation of SMAR by serving on a committee. There may be a committee that interests you!

Ethics

Code of Ethics

A great advantage of working with a REALTOR® is that ALL REALTORS® are bound by the NAR Code of Ethics and must complete training every two years.  The code establishes rules, procedures and best practices designed to ensure the highest standards of ethical conduct and professionalism.

Ombuds Program
