NOT all “Real Estate Agents” are REALTORS®
In many states it is not a requirement to be a Realtor® to hold a Real Estate License. However, there are many differences between those who are and are not a Realtor®.
I am a Realtor and have taken additional training and testing and joined the National Association of Realtors (go to NAR site). I maintain strict ethics and standards of practice. (view code of Ethics). Realtors have higher levels of training, more overall experience and are dedicated to the Real Estate Profession as a full time job. As a result, Realtors have additional insight and practices that give Realtors the edge to perform to a higher level of standards, directly benefitting you.
Higher standards of Realtors® results in better prices.
Every buyer wants the best price and yet still be able get their offer accepted. A Realtor will help you attain this goal and work with you through every step and make it happen for you.
So, one of the wisest choices you can make is to utilize a Realtor® in buying your next home.
