Advertising and Public Relations

WCAR engages in public relations, marketing and advertising campaigns to educate consumers about the value that using the services of a REALTOR® brings to the transaction.

Membership provides you with the ability to be part of a collaborative effort to make a significant and positive contribution to the local community through many community outreach projects WCAR either supports or hosts.


WCAR provides ample opportunities for its members to come together and learn, meet contemporaries with similar business interests and reconnect with longtime friends. 

One of WCAR’s special member events is the Installation Banquet and Awards Program. 

The Installation Banquet in December is a celebration that provides a chance to congratulate the incoming leadership of WCAR and to honor award recipients for their outstanding contributions. 

Educational Opportunities

WCAR provides its members with numerous educational opportunities through various classes and events at discounted or no cost to the members. 

These educational opportunities include seminars on real estate related subjects, with some offering Continuing Education Credits; and Lunch and Learn Classes, which offer up-to-date topics taught during the lunch hour.

REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC)

Involved WCAR members advocate on your behalf to support an environment that is friendly to buying and selling real estate. 

Advocacy focuses on: 1) taking an active role in public policy, 2) building relationships with elected officials at the local, state and federal levels and 3) fundraising to help elect candidates who will listen to our point of view and support or oppose key issue campaigns.


Sign riders, open house supplies, and more coming soon.

State and National Benefits

In addition to local member benefits from WCAR, members are entitled to benefits from both the state and national associations of REALTORS®:


The Supra electronic lockbox system creates sales opportunities for real estate agents. 

You can sell more homes faster by using the showing alerts, mobile productivity tools, and listing activity reports on the Supra System. 

Load the eKEY® app on your smartphone to open lockboxes and transmit information to the SupraWEB data system. Only authorized keyholders can open a lockbox, and every opening is documented both in the lockbox and in the secure SupraWEB database. 

WCAR offers FREE use of lockboxes through the office. As an MLS participant if you are interested in obtaining access to the Supra system, please email or call 419-227-5432.

WCAR Committees and Leadership Involvement

If you wish to help shape the activities of the West Central Association of REALTORS®, you can serve on one or several of its committees. A list of our current committees is available here

Leadership involvement is running for an elected position on the Board of Directors. 

Both opportunities will enhance your professional skills as well as your personal growth.

WCAR Multiple Listing Service

The MLS provides the bedrock of information millions of people depend on to make smart real estate decisions. 

The vast majority of home sales happen by real estate brokers and agents working together on the MLS, not because of portals, websites or apps.
