Buying or selling Colorado real estate will likely be one of the biggest financial commitments you will ever make. Be certain to work with a trusted REALTOR® so you get the best real estate advice possible.
What is a REALTOR®?
You probably already know how important it is to hire a professional Colorado real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home. But, did you know not all real estate licensees are considered equal?
Only Colorado real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS. That's why you'll see the title written in all capital letters, even with a trademark designation or ®.
REALTORS are committed to treating all parties in a transaction honestly. They subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a superior level of knowledge about the home buying and selling process. They proudly display the REALTOR logo on their business cards or other marketing and sales materials.
