How much are my NYSAR dues?

NYSAR dues are $100 per year.

What is the NRDS ID number?

Your National REALTOR Database System (NRDS) ID number is assigned to you by the National Association of REALTORS and is used to identify you in the membership database of the local, state and national associations. 

Where can I find my NRDS ID number? 

Your 9-digit NRDS ID number is printed above your name on the mailing label of your Go-To Guide as well as the mailing label of your bi-monthly New York State REALTOR magazine. You can also look up at your NRDS number at

How do I update my contact information? 

Member records are collected and entered into the National REALTOR Database System (NRDS) by your local board/association and then uploaded to NYSAR and NAR. If you need to make any changes to your contact information, please call your local board/association directly.

Where does NYSAR send my mail?

When you joined your local board/association, you were given the option to choose a preferred address for receiving mail. With the exception of the New York State REALTOR magazine which is mailed to your home, NYSAR uses this preferred address for membership mailings.

How many emails does NYSAR send?

E-News Weekly, sent every Saturday morning, is a must-read digest-style email covering the latest industry and association updates. NYSAR also sends subject and audience-specific emails periodically.

Who do I call with questions about my license?
The New York State Department of State Division of Licensing Services issues and renews licenses. Visit or call 518.474.4429 with any licensing-related questions.
Why is my license expiration date printed on the mailing label of my Go-To Guide?

NYSAR coordinates with the Department of State Division of Licensing Services to match up license information with our membership records. We then make our best effort to remind you of the license expiration by printing it on the mailing label of your Go-To Guide, displaying it when you login to and by sending you reminder emails in the three months prior to expiration. If your license expiration date is incorrect or “unknown” please contact Mary Hogan, NYSAR membership assistant, at so she can correct your member record. 

How can I get more involved with NYSAR?
NYSAR thrives thanks to the involvement of our dedicated volunteers. No matter your role in the business or how long you’ve been a member, we encourage you to get involved by attending our Mid-Winter and Fall Business Meetings, REALTOR Lobby Day and the Triple Play REALTOR Convention and Trade Expo.  
Each July, members are invited to sign-up for committee service. Committees range from legislative policy and professional standards to education, appraisal and more.
