Comparing Apples to Apples


It's amazing how often we see this logo and don't even think twice about it. Now do you know the difference between a REALTOR and a Real Estate Agent?

Let's compare apples to apples...REALTOR to Real Estate Agent...first of all REALTORS are associated with the National Association of REALTORS. This is a good thing because all REALTORS have to abide by a strict code of ethics. Therefore, you want a REALTOR to represent you in your real estate transaction because you know that they are held accountable to this code of ethics which includes how they should represent you, as their client.

So I'm sure you're thinking, how do I choose a REALTOR? Just because they are associated with the National Association of REALTORS, does that mean that they are a good REALTOR? No it does not necessarily mean that they will be a good agent for your real estate transaction. There are 9 Magical questions that you should ask when you are interviewing agents to assist you. Always ask these questions, whether you know the REALTOR really well (even if they're family) you should always ask them these 9 questions. If they don't answer these questions they way you want, then keep interviewing REALTORS until you find the one you want. If you'd like a hard copy of these 9 Magical questions e-mailed to you, then send me an e-mail request at 417Dwellings@gmail.com.

Until next time...

I never knew there was a difference. Interesting, what are these code of ethics? Some agents I have spoke with in the past did not appear to be too ethical. Wish you were in our area (Mississipi) we need more agents like you.

Thank you for your kind words. There are REALTORS all over the world that are excellent at what they do, even in your area. If you are in the need of an agent, let me know and I can easily refer you to an agent that I will personaly make sure will do a great job.
The REALTOR Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice set the stage for what we as REALTORS live and practice by. For example, when we represent a client, it is critical that confidentiality remains a top priority. You can view the entire code at:
