Why Choose A REALTOR
What is a REALTOR®?
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR “®” logo on their business cards or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate.
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR), based in the United States, is comprised of over one million members, including International REALTORS®, in over 50 countries around the world. In order to join NAR as an International REALTOR®, a practitioner must also belong to one of the 80 organized real estate associations worldwide, in which NAR maintains a formal relationship. NAR only maintains relationships with organizations that abide by a similar code of ethics. These bilateral partnerships exist to help consumers find trusted real estate professionals around the globe.
