WHAT MEMBERSHIP MEANS

The Lake Country Board of REALTORS®, (LCBR) serves as a central source of information for our members. Our main areas of focus are real estate education, the promotion of professionalism in our industry and representing our REALTOR® members with legislative initiatives. We strive to create positive change for the real estate community. Throughout its history, the Lake Country Board has exerted its influence in civic affairs in a capacity of representing a substantial segment of the business community across the Lake Country community.

LCBR Membership provides a purpose, vision and mission in the promotion and protection of the real estate industry.  It also provides a means for developing life-long affiliations, an outlet for community involvement and a means of defending the American dream of home ownership and private property rights.  Members of the Lake Country Board of REALTORS® aim higher, gain more and make greater strides in both their business and personal endeavors.

Read the REALTOR® Code of Ethics »

ARE YOU REPRESENTING YOUR INDUSTRY AS A REALTOR®?

A real estate agent is a REALTOR® when he or she becomes a member of the National Association of REALTORS® - The Voice for Real Estate, the world's largest professional association.  The term REALTOR® is a legally registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.  When joining the Lake Country Board of REALTORS®, members automatically become a member of the Georgia Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.
