The Term REALTOR®
The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
Being a REALTOR® is a membership identifier, not an occupation. REALTORS® are brokers and agents, but not all brokers and agents are REALTORS®.
Why Use A REALTOR®
If you see a home as one of your most important investments, the REALTOR® you work with could be one of your most valuable resources. Unlike many real estate agents who are simply licensed by their state to do business, REALTORS® have taken additional steps to become members of the local board of REALTORS® and have agreed to act under and adhere to a strict "Code of Ethics."
Selling your property is a process that is bound to be a little nerve-wracking and emotional and it requires an in-depth knowledge and experience. When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. But quite apart from the financial benefits, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a professional on your side. When selling you will need a clear understanding of the legal issues and potential pitfalls. After all, one wrong move could result in a lot of cost and frustration.
When buying, a REALTOR® will start by helping you identify what you want in your new home -- a particular area, closeness to schools and shopping, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, etc. Your REALTOR® will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available on the market and in the multiple listing service. A professional can help you look at your down payment; purchasing options and borrowing options that can help you find the home of your dreams. From looking at properties to the closing table a REALTOR® is by your side making sure everything flows together smoothly.
How much is your time worth? When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense!

The single most outstanding characteristic that sets REALTORS® apart from other real estate practitioners is their willingness to accept and abide by the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS®. The Code, which was first adopted in 1913, is a living document, responsive in its contents to changes in law and industry.
Accepting this standard as their own, REALTORS® pledge to observe its spirit in all of their activities whether conducted personally, through associates or others, or via technological means, and to conduct their business in accordance with the tenants set forth. Learn more.
