Proposed dues/fees increase
It has been five years (2013) since our last dues increase. Columbus REALTORS® has been dedicated to finding ways to balance increasing costs alongside funding important services to our membership. In the end, the only way to continue to provide the level of service that our membership expects was to raise the dues for 2019 for both Columbus REALTORS® and Columbus MLS. Read more.
