WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
It is understandable that many people confuse the titles “real estate agent,” “broker,” and “Realtor.” While these terms are often used interchangeably, there are distinct differences. Real estate agent (or real estate associate) is the most encompassing title and refers to a real estate professional who has taken and passed all required classes and passed the state’s real estate licensing exam. Brokers have continued their education beyond this point and have attained real estate broker licenses, which qualifies them to work independently or have other agents working for them. A Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors® who abides by the association’s standards and upholds its code of ethics.
