When you sell or buy a house you will find and even work with different people who, in addition, will have different tasks within the organization. Mainly, you will meet with REALTORS®, Real Estate Agents and Brokers. Although the objectives of these three professionals are similar, they have differences:

  1. Real Estate Agent: Is one who has a license that accredits him to be a real estate agent. The requirements necessary to obtain the license vary throughout the country.
  2. REALTOR®: is the term registered for an agent who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, which is the largest association in the nation. In addition, professional standards separate REALTORS® from real estate agents, since the REALTOR® must comply with the ethical training code every two years
  3. Broker: Is a real estate agent who exercises the highest level of license after working in the industry.
