When buy­ing a home, would you know what to do if: Your fi­nanc­ing fell through on the day of clos­ing; your home in­spec­tor found a ter­mite in­fes­ta­tion; or the neigh­bors had, some time ear­lier, built a wall on what is about to be­come your prop­erty? Your Real­tor would. A 2007 sur­vey by theN­ational As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors re­ported that 98 per­cent of home buy­ers ranked hon­esty and in­tegrity as a “very im­por­tant” fac­tor when choos­ing a real es­tate pro­fes­sional. Also, ac­cord­ing to that sur­vey, 82 per­cent of sell­ers used an agent who pro­vided a broad range of ser­vices and man­aged most as­pects of the sales trans­ac­tion.

A Real­tor is a real es­tate agent who be­longs to the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors , who must com­ply with its es­tab­lished Code of Ethics, and who is com­mit­ted to fur­ther­ing his orher knowl­edge of the in­dus­try.

To make sure you are work­ing with a Real­tor , look for the fed­er­ally reg­is­tered mem­ber­ship mark — Real­tor — or call your lo­cal Real­tors as­so­ci­a­tion. Real­tor® As­so­ci­a­tion of Martin County Inc.
