Why Use a Realtor®?

“Realtor®” and “real estate agent” are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. While both sell real estate, only a Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors®, bound by the professional standards of the Realtor® Code of Ethics. This means they maintain the highest standard of service to their clients throughout the home buying and selling process.
