SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REAL ESTATE AGENT AND A REALTOR®?
- Real estate agent: Anyone who earns a real estate license can be called a real estate agent. State requirements vary, but in all states you must take a minimum number of classes and pass a test to earn your license.
- REALTOR®: A real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, state and local associations. This means that he or she must uphold the standards of the association and its code of ethics as a Realtor®. [Duties to the public; duties to our clients and customers; and duties to other Realtors.]
As Realtors®, we are held to a higher standard of practice. Yes, whether a real estate agent or one who is also a Realtor, we are all licensed and must follow the Colorado Real Estate Commission's rules and if we don't, there are consequences. However, as Realtors, we elevate the practice with standards and a code of ethics, like most other professions. Would you work with a lawyer or a doctor who had their license, but weren't members of their respective industry's professional boards?
Realtors typically have more experience, they advance their profession by obtaining specific industry designations, work full-time, and tend to earn more income than real estate agents — which then by default means that you are getting better representation in your transaction.
It's also important to note that a portion of our annual board dues are used politically to lobby for consumer protections, rights, and benefits. i.e. financial and credit issues, diversity and fair housing, property rights issues, insurance issues, federal tax issues, to note a few. Why not work with a Realtor® and help support home ownership dreams?
