What is the difference between a Real Estate Agent & REALTOR?
To become a REALTOR® you must belong to the National Association of Realtors. The NAR upholds its members as professionals who must adhere to a strict level of competency, fairness and high integrity resulting from adherence to stringent moral and ethical conduct in business relations. By working with a REALTOR®, you are ensuring that your transaction will be handled professionally, and that your rights in real estate activities are protected by the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. REALTORS® are more than just sales people or agents. We’re real estate professionals who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the Texas Association of REALTORS® (TAR) and the Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR)- and we must abide by a strict code of ethics.
