A common question we see in our industry is about real estate titles. If you’re new to buying or selling real estate, or just aren’t familiar with real estate terms, it’s easy to confuse the titles. Most of the time, an individual with a real estate license (and not a broker) is called a real estate agent (sometimes real estate salesperson too) or a REALTOR®. These titles have different meanings though. The definitions of each real estate title helps to show the difference…
Real Estate Agent: An individual who passed the real estate exam and took the required courses to hold a real estate license.
REALTOR®: A real estate agent that has a real estate license, but also is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The NAR has specific standards, expectations, and ethics that members are expected to uphold.
All of the agents at Location Williamson are proud to be REALTORS® and members of the NAR.
