REALTOR® Brand Identity
The term REALTOR® is a registered trademark of the National Association of REALTORS® and may only be used by the members of the National Association of REALTORS®. Use of the REALTOR® trademark by non-members is a violation of copyright law. NAR commissioned a study and discovered that the REALTOR® brand is worth, on average, more than $4,500.00 annually to members! “REALTORS®: Your Best Option for Buying and Selling Your Home”
Code of Ethics
REALTORS® adhere to a strict Code of Ethics that requires a higher standard of conduct than that required by real estate license law.
