The value of your membership gives you far more in benefits and services than you pay in dues. This value will help you earn more through continuing education, networking, and advocacy for the real estate industry, all while reducing your risk and liability.
Even if you have never used an Association benefit or service, you have saved thousands of dollars in potentially lost income thanks to Oregon REALTORS® Advocacy Efforts. As an example, the 2012 defeat of transfer taxes through Measure 79 and prevention of efforts to eliminate the mortgage interest deduction in Oregon were due to work by the Oregon REALTORS® Advocacy Team, protecting you from lost sales.
Oregon REALTORS® Legal Hotline provides members the opportunity to ask real estate-related questions of an attorney specializing in real estate and contract law. We support members on a variety of topics including disclosure, license law, contracts and offers, and more. Questions answered on the Legal Hotline saves you untold dollars in legal fees. This benefit alone is an incredible value for your yearly member dues.
Oregon REALTORS® offers a complementary and comprehensive real estate transaction forms library for all members, with a robust and ever-expanding training library, classes, webinars, tutorials and more. Our forms are clear, user-friendly, legally-sound and responsive to industry needs. Another incredible value for your annual member dues.

The OREGON REALTORS® Association Health PlanRead More
We have paved the way for Oregon REALTORS® brokerages and their employees to finally obtain affordable group health coverage. Please note this is a GROUP health plan, not individual coverage. As a result, there are eligibility criteria required by the state that we must follow in order to provide insurance to the Oregon REALTORS®.
"Just a quick note to thank you and Oregon REALTORS® very much...we were finally able to obtain formal approval for group health insurance for MORE Realty through Providence. It is benefiting quite a few of our agents and staff...Candace and Danny at Laporte insurance have been our advocates for this program and helped us more than I can express. They have been absolutely wonderful and couldn't be more happy with their efforts and time."-Paul Knighton, President/CEO, MORE® Realty
"Not only has the association health plan delivered better health coverage options for our agents, it's allowed us to recruit top-tier administrative staff as well. For the health of our people, for recruitment, for retention--we couldn't have made a better move. If you're looking to improve the support you provide your people, this is your next step."
-Brad Twiss, Owner/Principal Broker, Neighbors Realty

Following the 2018 launch of a health insurance survey by the National Association of REALTORS® and substantial work and effort, Oregon REALTORS® and Johnson Benefits Group are thrilled to announce that we will be offering Oregon REALTORS®, along with company employees access to affordable health insurance through our partner, Providence Health Plans.
The team is proud to have broken through the barriers to obtain affordable health insurance which has plagued the real estate industry for many years. The NAR survey revealed that many REALTORS® that have insurance are covered through a spouse or the individual market. However, there is also a significant group unable to purchase insurance at all through any channel due to the high premium cost.
Working together Oregon REALTORS®, Providence Health Plan and Johnson Benefits Group will be taking advantage of the purchasing power of the full Oregon REALTORS® membership, brokerage staff and family members. The size of the REALTORS® will ensure you receive excellent benefits at a lower cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my firm/agency is eligible?
Each covered firm must have at least one common law employee and either a W2 employee or realtor for a minimum of two enrolling, and be in good standing with the Oregon REALTORS®. A common law employee cannot be the owner or spouse of an owner, retired or former employee, independent contractor, leased, seasonal, or temporary employee.
If a firm/agency meets the above criteria, common law employees, W2 employees, realtors (independent contractors), owners, and domestic partners are eligible for this association health plan. Additionally, a group Medicare plan is available to retirees of the Oregon REALTORS®.
How many plans can I offer?
Firms can have two plans if they have 2-9 enrolling eligible, and up to three plans for firms with 10 or more enrolling eligible employees/realtors.
What is the enrollment submission deadline?
All materials must be submitted to the Oregon REALTORS® preferred agent/agency by the 15th of the month prior to the requested effective date. If all materials are not received by the 15th, the effective date will be pushed out one month and rates are subject to change.
How does the participation requirement and waivers work?
Seventy-five percent participation is required for eligible employees/realtors (if realtor class is being offered coverage) for each firm within the association. Valid waivers do not count against participation and include other group coverage, Medicare, VA/Tricare and Indian Health Services. Waivers must include the name of the waiving employee/realtor on the front of the form, and the waiver section (4) on the back of the form (signature and date required).
What if someone leaves the firm, does that affect participation?
Participation is audited at time of enrollment and renewal only. Mid-year terminated enrollees will be offered COBRA and are entitled to 18-36 months of coverage, dependent upon their qualifying event.
Does this coverage extend to independent contractors (1099)?
Yes, this has been designed to cover both common law employees and independent contractors for affordable access to an association health plan (group coverage).
Does each person pay his or her own premium?
Firms are required to pay a minimum of 50% contribution for W2/enrolled common law employees. For realtors/independent contractors (1099) there is no firm contribution requirement. QVI Risk Solutions has been contracted to collect premiums from both the firms and enrolling realtors/contracted enrollees. This is through ACH transfer for realtors, and a firm ACH/EFT transfer for the W2/common law employees. The cost is $6.50 per person per month.
What effective date can a firm have and what is needed to enroll?
Each firm can have their own effective date (first of the month) and the association health plan is offered with effective dates of 11/1/2020 and after. A complete employee/realtor/dependent covered census is needed to supply a quote. Final rates are based upon final enrollment. A completed Master Contract Application and employee/realtor enrollment forms/waivers are needed to process enrollment.
Can you send me the rate sheet?
Rates are determined by the dynamics of the individual firms seeking a group quote. A census is needed that includes name, date of birth, gender and zip code for all covered eligible enrollees (common law employees, independent contractors, W2 employees) and indicating whether they are enrolling or not. Final rates are based on the final enrolling census.
What if I am retired, is there coverage options for me?
A group Medicare option is available for all members of the Oregon REALTORS® that are considered retired. Please contact Dave Johnson for more details.
What is the probationary period and hours worked requirement?
Each firm can determine their probationary period with one of the following: First of the month following date of hire, 30 or 60 days. Hours worked can be set by each firm between 17.5 and 30 hours per week (with the assumption that realtors work on average a full time schedule as set per each firm).

Prove It by Tesoro - Homeowner Proof-of-Ownership ReportRead More
What is Prove It by Tesoro?
Many homeowners assume their insurance policy covers the full value of their personal property in case of a loss or damage. They don’t realize that to get as much as possible, they must prove what they owned after a disaster. Prove It by Tesoro helps homeowners create a proof-of-ownership report before disaster strikes.
Prove It by Tesoro makes it simple. Their professional remote inspectors take photos with the homeowner’s cell phone camera and they write down the homeowner's descriptions what they own. Homeowners then receive a secure, private proof-of-ownership report, which they can view or update anytime.
Hopefully, homeowners will never need to file a claim, but if they do, their Prove It by Tesoro report will supply evidence of ownership, so their insurance provider can justify offering the proper value for all that was lost.
Prove It can help ensure that replacing their treasures is not a disaster of its own.
REALTORS® Use Prove It by Tesoro as a Marketing Service
