How many times have you seen the ads on television regarding choosing a Realtor? Did you know that not every real estate agent is a Realtor? The name “Realtor” is a registered trade mark, and only brokers who are members of the National Association of Realtors are legally allowed to call themselves Realtors. As a Realtor a broker agrees to abide by a strict “Code Of Ethics” that has been developed by the Association of Realtors for the protection of home buyers and sellers. Realtors support the housing industry and lobby from city through federal governments to protect the most valuable asset most people will ever own and keep the “American Dream” achievable. When you are ready to buy or sell your home, make sure that the broker is a Realtor. It’s the best way to assure that you get the best representation possible in the purchase or sale of your home.
