Is the Williamsburg Area Association of REALTORS closed? No. Our Staff are on-site and working during our normal business hours (M-F, 8:30am-4:30pm). You will see the lights on and our cars in the parking lot, but access to the building is limited to our Staff and any necessary service providers related to building maintenance. We must be consistent in this regard to limit social interactions. Please respect this protocol and know that it is not personal, regardless of your familiarity with our Staff and/or your membership longevity.
What are my options for taking CE classes to renew my license? Our members rely on our classes to further their professional development, as well as ensure timely renewal of their real estate license. If your license renews in the not-too-distant future, you are encouraged to consider these online education partners, including The CE Shop, which is offering all our members a 40% discount when using promo code SUPPORT40 at checkout now through April 15th.
How do I apply for membership, lease a Sentrikey and/or make changes to my existing membership and related services? Our Staff can accommodate all the usual requests via phone, Email, fax, and our night drop.
How can I purchase Lockboxes and other items from the REALTOR® Store? Contact our Staff to place your order and pay securely over the phone with a credit card. When you are ready to pick-up those items, call us at 757-253-0228, provide your name and make/model/color of your vehicle, and we will place your prepaid items outside the front door when we see your vehicle in the parking lot.
What action do I need to take if I am registered for a class between now and April 30th? Nothing. If you are currently registered for a class between now and April 30th, you will not be charged a no-show fee. Also, you will receive additional information related to any rescheduling and options for keeping the reservation on the new date.
How will any necessary governance (BOD) meetings be conducted? All governance meetings through April 30th will be coordinated by the CEO in consultation with the Presidents to determine the necessity of the meeting, and if necessary, the alternate method for conducting the meeting. Please direct any questions about WAAR/WMLS BOD meetings to the CEO or respective President.

Flood Hazard Insurance Information and
Real Estate License Renewal
CE license renewals– Effective January 1, 2016
For real estate license renewals after January 1, 2016, salespersons are required to take a one hour Legal Update class that contains the mandatory flood insurance information in order for their real estate license to renew.
This new one hour Legal Update class that includes flood insurance information is required even if you have already taken the one hour Legal Update class that is currently being offered (without flood insurance information).
PL requirements –
The flood insurance information is being incorporated into the current Real Estate Law and Board Regulations class. No additional class is required for you to meet the first year’s 30 hours PL credit requirement. If you have already taken the Real Estate Law and Board Regulations class, you do not have to take it again in order to meet this requirement.
