Membership Dues

NEW!! NYRAC has implemented a new monthly subscription model. This new flexible payment option is just $34 / month (with an annual commitment)* and will provide members with greater convenience and flexibility. Efforts that help break down financial barriers to entry are part of NYRAC’s commitment to making NYRAC more inclusive – to share our mission with fellow residential real estate agents across NYC – without compromising our standards for membership!

Annual membership dues for 2024 are $400. Dues are accepted on a rolling basis and are valid for one year from date of payment.

NYRAC is committed to fostering an environment that welcomes and embraces diversity. NYRAC will never discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, disability, familial status, or any protected veteran or military status in any of our programs or activities, including employment, membership applications, and educational programs. Anyone who self-identifies with underrepresented / historically marginalized groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed by our Board of Directors on the second Tuesday of each month. You can typically expect to hear from us following that meeting.
