Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for your interest in the Monmouth Ocean Regional REALTORS® (MORR) and the Monmouth Ocean Regional MLS (MORMLS)!
What is a REALTOR®?
A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® who is required to abide by a strict Code of Ethics. The term REALTOR® is a registered trademark of the National Association of REALTORS® and misuse of the term is a trademark violation. To become a REALTOR®, a person who holds a real estate license may join their local REALTOR® Association which makes them automatically a member of the State and National Associations.

How do I update my phone number and email?
You can update your profile information in your IMS Portal. While in Flex click on Menu, look under the heading Products and select IMS (Pay Your Bill). You will be automatically redirected to your IMS Portal. Once in the IMS Portal you will click on Personal Services and select Personal Information. This is where you can make those changes, keep in mind if it is an address or name change you will need to contact us.
What is the MORR website?
Our Association website is www.monmouthoceanrealtors.com. MORR also hosts a Consumer Education Website, www.therealnewjersey.com, that showcases all the great things New Jersey has to offer. It has pages for each municipality in Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties that feature editorial, photos and video of each town. Consumers can also view listings and leads go direct to the listing agent….no charge!
When do I pay dues?
Depending on your membership, you may pay once per year, or twice per year. If you are a Primary/Secondary member (Board membership & MLS membership), you will owe dues twice per year. The dues for Association membership are due each December, and the dues for MLS membership are due each June. If you are a Non-Primary/Non-Secondary/MLS Only member, you will owe dues once per year each June.
Why am I being charged so much money?
You are being charged a pro rated amount on two separate fees. You are being charged board dues that run on a billing cycle from January to December. The second charge is MLS fees that run on a billing cycle from July to June. You are paying an amount that will take you through the current billing cycle and will be billed when the billing cycle starts again for each charge.
Can I join MORR if I belong to another REALTOR® Association?
Yes, you can join MORR even if you belong to another REALTOR® Association. You just need to pay the local portion of the REALTOR® dues and you can participate in the Association in any way that you like. Enjoy our events, education, and service centers – you become one of us. If you want MLS access you need to join the Monmouth Ocean Regional MLS.
