This Commercial Overlay Board (COB) is a "Local Board" for ALL Commercial Real Estate Practitioners

Our focus does not include providing services to residential-only REALTORS® licensees. Any REALTOR® in Oklahoma or an adjoining state may easily join the COB as either a Primary or Secondary board of choice.  We welcome both existing REALTOR® licensee members as well as Affiliate members (professionals not using the REALTOR® designation such as architects, contractors, developers, attorneys, mortgage brokers, title & abstract, suppliers, vendors, etc.)

    • Commercial Licensee REALTOR® Members of this Commercial Overlay Board (an NAR defined " Local Bard") may separately join MLSOK.com  as a member of an office, to access the OKC Metro's Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
    • Residential Licensee REALTORS® should consider joining the Commercial Overlay Board as a Secondary Member, as the Commercial Overlay Board will not be providing residential services.  For Primary membership we would suggest the following residential Local Boards with whom we currently have overlay agreements:

A Commercial REALTOR® from Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, or Arkansas who does business in Oklahoma may join COCAR as a Secondary Member, paying only Local COCAR dues.

The  Central Oklahoma Commercial Association of REALTORS®  (NAR ID # 6931) is an independent division of of the SouthWest Real Estate Association, an Oklahoma chartered non-profit corporation (Federal ID 47-4200644), operating under the Trade Name (dba) COCAR™, with its own bylaws, officers, and board of directors.
