See tabs below for information on real estate forms, how to sign up for DotLoop and/or ZipLogix and different online membership forms.
Real estate forms are used for writing real estate contracts or to assist in the process of completing a real estate transaction. The majority are published by a number of REALTOR® sources and are made available only to SMAR, Maryland REALTORS® or NAR members. They are protected by copyright and provided by REALTORS® for use by REALTORS®. SMAR members are encouraged to use forms provided by Maryland REALTORS® whenever possible. In those cases where Maryland REALTORS® supplied forms do not fulfill needs specific to SMAR, the association provides its own custom forms and addenda.
Are you a REALTOR® but not a member of SMAR looking for our forms? Forms specific to our area are posted here on Maryland REALTORS® website after logging in. SMAR honors forms reciprocity with other local associations as long as the person requesting the forms is a REALTOR® in good standing.
For SMAR Members - Our forms are available via the following:
- DotLoop- an electronic forms software. See tab above for more info. (Premium features available to SMAR Members!)
- ZipForms- an electronic forms software provide as an NAR Member Benefit. See tab above for more info.
- Maryland REALTORS®'s Website - downloadable PDF's available after logging in
Please note: SMAR Staff are not REALTORS® and DO NOT KNOW, NOR CAN THEY RECOMMEND, what forms you need. Please consult your broker.

What is DotLoop?
peoplework, not paperwork.
dotloop links people, documents and tasks to help you work better, together. It’s easy, it’s hassle-free and it’s everything you need in one place.
Know where things stand, always.
- Start off with a loop. Loops are online workplaces, which you can use for home sales, apartment rentals, expense reports or anything else. You name it, you can loop it.
- Work confidently in the loop knowing there are no loose ends. dotloop offers all the tools you need to collaborate in real time, start to finish.
- Safe and secure, your data is encrypted and stored in the cloud, meaning you’ll always have access to everything you need.
Eliminate the back and forth.
- End paperwork ping-pong now and forever. With an entire project on one page, nothing gets lost and everyone always knows where to go.
- Respect others time and your own by bringing your team, clients and other parties into a loop. Everyone can share documents, collaborate and set up to-do lists to stay in sync.
Your team, clients, service providers – everyone you need, together at last.
- With dotloop’s patented technology, everyone in a loop is equally empowered to get the deal done in an easy, secure and confidential way.
- No matter who starts a loop, dotloop protects your privacy. No one can see what you add until you share it, and no one can see who you collaborate with.
eSignatures & negotiations done
- Stop emailing and uploading huge PDFs. Just add your documents to your loop, then share them for esignatures or negotiations.
- Edits you make are done in private until you are ready to share them with the other party.
- eSignatures are easy, legally binding and secure.
- dotloop customers own the data they put into dotloop. This includes all customer data, from user information to transaction data.
- dotloop will not use this data as part of other Zillow Group products or services unless customers have given us permission to do so. This covers all Zillow Group businesses.
- dotloop does not disclose customer data except where required by law or authorized by the customers in question.
This guarantee applies to all data previously entered in dotloop as well as data entered in dotloop moving forward. If you have any questions regarding the dotloop data privacy guarantee, I encourage you to please contact your success manager. Thank you for your continued support. And happy looping!
