What is a REALTOR®?

When is a Real Estate Agent a REALTOR®?

A real estate agent is a REALTOR® when they become a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, the world's largest professional association.

The term "REALTOR®" is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and abides by its strict Code of Ethics.
