Washington REALTORS® have negotiated a discounted fee for the SafeShowings™ app! Now, WR members can take advantage of a free 30 day trial. After 30 days, the app is only $3.75/mo or $37.50/year. SafeShowings™ is the first real estate safety solution of its kind in a simple-to-use mobile app. It captures a facial image, in real time, of someone entering the property with you. If you are unable to end a showing, it sends the image of the potential perpetrator as well as your geolocation to your emergency contacts. This strategy is a proactive safety deterrent. The app's goal is to create the tools that could save lives, while keeping people and properties safe. Real estate professionals and their loved ones feel more secure knowing that SafeShowings will automatically notify emergency contacts with identifying details and geolocation in an emergency. DOWNLOAD THE SAFESHOWINGS FLYER for instructions on how to get started.

Other Member Benefits


  • Protecting Consumers, Members and the Transaction

Washington REALTORS® Advocacy Team, including passionate members from all over the state, works hard to protect consumers, members and the real estate transaction from Legislation that would adversely affect them. During the 2019 Legislative Session, WR pioneered and championed the "Unlock the Door for Affordable Homeownership" coalition, which worked on many of pieces of Legislation to help make housing affordable for all. Not only did Washington REALTORS® help get condo liability reform passed (a huge win for affordable housing), but our association was successful in fighting off a direct tax increase on our member's bottom line. Your dues and participation make this possible.

The program gives both the complainant and the respondent the opportunity to work out a resolution without the formal hearing process. Services cover disputes between two brokers, disputes between a broker and a client, disputes involving affiliates such as inspectors, finance or escrow. Email Laura Murray at for more information.
