    How Do I Participate in the Realtor® Program?

    There are three ways to sign up for the Realtor® Participation Program:

    1. It is preferred that the Real Estate Agents brings the prospective client(s), on their initial visit, to register the client and him/herself on the REALTOR®-Client Registration Form with the Arbor Homes Community Sales Manager.
    2. If it is not possible to come in with the homebuyer, we ask for a courtesy email from the Agent to the Arbor Homes Community Sales Manager providing the client’s contact information prior to their initial visit.
    3. If a client does visit the sales model on their own, they must list the Real Estate Agent on their first visit for the Agent to be included in the sale.
    What if My Customer is Credit Challenged, Needs Time to Save a Down Payment or is Currently in a Lease Agreement?


    Arbor Homes has many programs to accommodate specific client situations. Contact our Realtor Relations Manager today for more details.
