Why Should I Work with a REALTOR®?

Why should I work with a REALTOR®?
REALTORS® and Real Estate Agents

A real estate agent’s job is to help guide you through the complexities of buying or selling a property.  But not everyone with a real estate license is a REALTOR®.  A REALTOR® is not just a real estate licensee, but is also a member of the National Association of REALTORS®.

So what’s the difference?  REALTORS® must meet stricter education requirements than the law requires, and they’re bound not only by that law, but by the higher standard of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.  That’s why only REALTORS® are allowed to use the famous REALTOR® “R”. 

Your REALTOR® is committed to protecting your interests throughout the entire transaction with the integrity, honor, professionalism, and expertise that meets the high standards set by the REALTOR® name.

And REALTORS® have access to more sophisticated tools to help sellers market their properties to the right audience, help buyers find just the right home, and make the entire process run smoothly.

You’ll find your REALTOR® isn’t just an expert on your local real estate market, but also a trusted adviser who can help you navigate a complex transaction.
