A REALTOR is a licensed real estate salesperson who belongs to the National Association of REALTORS®, the largest trade group in the country. If you’re not a REALTOR, here’s why you might want to consider becoming one.
- REALTORS are held to a higher ethical standard than licensed agents and must adhere to a Code of Ethics.
- REALTORS are members of the National Association of REALTORS, which means they have access to a wide range of classes, seminars, and certification opportunities.
- REALTORS are part of local REALTOR associations that are active in community service, economic development, local politics, and other neighborhood associations.
- REALTORS, through participation in their associations, have numerous opportunities to interact with other REALTORS, which means they have more chances to market properties, make connections, and build their local expertise.
A recent study conducted by the University of Denver Daniels College of Business that compared Denver-area REALTORS versus Licensees found:
- 98% of top producers are REALTORS
- REALTORS average twice the sides
- REALTORS average twice the annual transactions
- REALTORS average three times the annual dollar volume
- REALTORS exclusively serve most higher-priced communities
- REALTORS average higher closing prices
