A person who receives a Real Estate license from the State of Florida is not required to become a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® designation confirms to the public that this person practices honestly, fairly and most importantly with a strict code of ethics, belonging to a Board of REALTORS®, The National Association of Realtors and the Florida Association of Realtors. Not only do REALTORS® uphold their Code of Ethics they are accountable to them through discipline and fines.
Here is a link to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.
The next time someone says “I’m in Real Estate” and hands you their card, look for the REALTOR® word and or trademark. The REALTOR® will go above and beyond what’s required to provide the best and most professional service to their customers and clients alike. I’m proud to be a REALTOR®
