We know all of these acronyms can get really confusing and the who’s who in the real estate world only adds to it. Let’s see if we can help clear things up:
Montcalm County Association of Realtors®
Part of being a Realtor® is belonging to the state, national and local Associations. MCAR is that third piece for you.

As of January 1st, 2018, we have 62 Primary Realtor® Members and 5 Secondary Realtor® Members (Brokers who belong to multiple Associations) and 25 Affiliate Members (our business partners: lenders, title companies, appraisal companies, etc….).
