What is the difference between a real estate licensee and someone who calls themselves a REALTOR®? Why is working with a REALTOR® smart?
All real estate agents are NOT the same. Anyone who has obtained a real estate license through the state is a real estate licensee. However, only those who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and subscribe to their strict Code of Ethics can legitimately call themselves by the “REALTOR®” name. REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark of America's largest trade association. NAR represents 1.2 million members, and is involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
