Realtor®

People use the terms REALTOR® and real estate agent interchangeably, but that is incorrect. Not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®. Although both are licensed to sell real estate, the main difference is that the Realtor is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®.

REALTOR® must subscribe to the Realtor Code of Ethics. There are 17 Articles in the Code of Ethics. To many consumers, this matters. The Code of Ethics is strictly enforced by local real estate boards. The 17 Articles of the Code of Ethics also contains various underlying Standards of Practice. It's not just a bunch of rules that agents swear to uphold and adhere to because their broker made them join the Board. The Standards are much more restrictive and confining to conduct than those state guidelines governing agents who simply hold a real estate license.

Above all, the Realtor® must pledge to put the interests of her clients above her own.
