Member Benefits of Joining NYSCAR and its local NYC/LI Chapter

The primary focus of NYSCAR is industry education, legislative concerns, and helping you build your business.

Commercial Legislation NYSCAR is passionate about the laws that affect our commercial Brokerage Business, both on a state and national level. With our affiliations with NYSAR and NAR we have a voice in opposing legislation that would hurt our industry as well as supporting positive legislation. This political “watch dog” function of our organization is critical to safeguarding the livelihood of our members.

Education NYSCAR provides educational opportunities for Commercial Continuing Education courses given by our local chapters throughout the State.

Marketing NYSCAR chapters host marketing sessions throughout the state to help you promote your properties. Need help marketing or finding property out of your area, locate a NYSCAR member to work with throughout New York State on our web site.

Broadcast E-Mails In addition members may e-blast their listings and customer requirements to all our members through our web site
