According to George Szkup, a licensed realtor in Tucson, being a real estate agent means being on your own. The only help you can get is occasional advices from others which does not necessarily mean people with the same profession as you since entering into the world of realtors mean entering into a competitive industry. A real estate agent does not work only for others, but also for themselves. The distance their career can go is dependent on the effort they exert. Ergo, a realtor should have characteristics of being ambitious, organized, dedicated, friendly, goal-oriented, and persevering.

And that it boils down to membership in the National Association of Realtors. It may seem like a simple thing, but it is really a big deal. Being a member of the association means that Realtors and more trust worthy than just real estate agent. Realtors are also subscribed to the Code of Ethics.

The Code of Ethics is strictly enforced between realtors. It has its own set of rules that agents swears to follow. While there is no evidence nor guarantee that all REALTORS are morally or ethically better than unaffiliated real estate agents, it is an attempt by the industry to regulate and, as such, deserves recognition. Here are some things that a Realtor can give you that real estate agents cant.

#1) Pledge to put the interests of buyers and sellers ahead of their own and to treat all parties honestly.
#2) Shall refrain from exaggerating, misrepresenting or concealing material facts; and is obligated to investigate and disclose when situations reasonably warrant.
#3) Shall cooperate with other brokers / agents when it is in the best interests of the client to do so.
#4) Have a duty to disclose if they represent family members who own or are about to buy real estate, or if they themselves are a principal in a real estate transaction, that they are licensed to sell real estate.
#5) Shall not provide professional services in a transaction where the agent has a present or contemplated interest without disclosing that interest.

As of today, the National Association of REALTORS was founded in 1908 and has more than one million members worldwide.

The figures for February shows them at 5.03 million units but March has them only at 4.03 % meaning less and less are being sold. These properties include existing single-family homes, townhouses, condominiums and co-op’s. Regionally, sales were nice in the Northeast and the West but very bad for the Midwest and South as everybody is touched by the effects of the sub-prime lending market problems that has rocked the world’s financial services.
