What is the difference between a Realtor and a Real Estate Agent?

This is a very common question, and commonly misunderstood concept! So I would like to take a moment to explain it! 🙂

 

Anyone who has their real estate license may be called a real estate agent.

A Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors, which has a code of ethics they must abide to.
