TLC Exposes the True Difference Between a Realtor and a Real Estate Agent

In case you do not know, my name is Francee Francee, a licensed realtor in Indiana and Michigan and co-owner of At Home Realty Group. You can learn more about me on my website at http://www.FranceeFoster.com

In the real estate industry we often use the titles of “Real Estate Agent” and “Realtor” interchangeably. However, the reality is that there is a big difference.

A recent article by TLC Network highlights this difference, and I thought I should share it.

Realtor vs. Real Estate Agent

“Don’t be confused by the terminology: Although all realtors are real estate agents, not all real estate agents are realtors. A Realtor is someone who belongs to the National Association of Realtors. To become a member, an agent must hold an active real estate license from a qualified school and promise to adhere to a particular code of ethics.”
