Your Real Estate Professional Behind the Scenes

Understand the value of using a REALTOR® when selling or purchasing a home.

All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.

    To sell real estate in Florida, you are required to hold a current real estate license from the Department of Business and Professional Regulations, Division of Real Estate. A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate broker that has joined the National Association of REALTORS® (and appropriate state and local associations). The word REALTOR® is a licensed trademark for use only by our members. The benefit of being a REALTOR® is the value, professionalism, and character that REALTORS® uphold. You are no longer merely a real estate licensee, you are a REALTOR®

    The value of your membership gives you far more in benefits and services than you pay in dues. This value will help you earn more through education, networking, and connecting while reducing your risk and liability.
