When Is a Real Estate Agent a REALTOR ® ?

REALTOR.org Logo - National Association of REALTORSAll real estate agents are not REALTORS®. A real estate agent is a REALTOR® only when he or she becomes a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® ― "The Voice for Real Estate®," the world's largest professional association. 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® (NAR) and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

Founded in 1908, NAR has grown to more than 1 million members today. NAR is composed of REALTORS® who are involved in residential and commercial real estate as brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers, home stagers, counselors and others who are engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry.

Members belong to one or more of 1,700 local associations/boards and 54 state and territory associations of REALTORS®, and can join one of our many institutes, societies and councils. Additionally, NAR offers members are pledged to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics is a point of pride and distinction.

REALTORS® are real estate professionals who are experts in marketing and negotiation. REALTORS® can help a seller set a realistic price and ensure the proper paperwork and various disclosures and inspections are handled correctly. REALTORS® know best how to prepare a home and maximize value, provide broader exposure to the market and are more likely to generate multiple bids than a seller on their own.

In addition, REALTORS® are experts in attracting qualified buyers. A professional can show a home more objectively than can a seller who may be emotionally attached to the home, and who might become unnerved by prospective buyers’ critical comments. The real estate pro also checks the financial capability and bona fides of buyers before allowing them onto a seller’s property.

How will you know your agent is a REALTOR®, a member of the National Association of REALTORS® ? You'll know by looking for the REALTOR® "R" on business cards, yard signs and when members are wearing their REALTOR® pin.

The National Association of REALTORS® can be found online at  www.REALTOR.org.
