People use the terms REALTOR® and real estate agent interchangeably, but that is incorrect. Not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®. There are differences between REALTORS® and real estate agents. They are not the same. Although both are licensed to sell real estate, the main difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR® is a REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®.

REALTOR® must subscribe to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. There are 17 Articles in the Code of Ethics. To many consumers, this matters. If you are wondering why the Code of Ethics matter to a consumer, read on.

The Code of Ethics is strictly enforced by local real estate boards. The 17 Articles of the Code of Ethics also contains various underlying Standards of Practice. It’s not just a bunch of rules that agents swear to uphold and adhere to because their broker made them join the Board. The Standards are much more restrictive and confining to conduct than those state guidelines governing agents who simply hold a real estate license.

While there is no evidence nor guarantee that all REALTORS® are morally or ethically better than unaffiliated real estate agents, it is an attempt by the industry to regulate and, as such, deserves recognition. Keeping mind, of course, that even the non-NAR member “real estate agent” is held to the same legal standard as a practical matter.

Each of the 17 Articles carries weight to a Realtor in her every-day business practice, but one article typically stands above the rest. It is the basis for the way a Realtor operates. Fortunately, it is the first Article, which sets the tone. Nowhere does it state the Realtor must be fair to all parties, such as a listing agent dealing with a buyer’s agent, but a Realtor must be honest.

Above all, however, the Realtor must pledge to put the interests of their clients above their own.
