A licensed REALTOR® must be licensed under state laws that govern exactly how real estate can and cannot be performed. These regulations are your legal guarantee of professional behavior.

REALTORS® must adhere to an extensive Code of Ethics. Several states have additional Codes of Ethics governing the behavior of real estate professionals. Your interests must always be put first.
Your dealings with a REALTOR® are insured.
For your peace of mind, REALTORS® maintain Errors and Omissions Insurance.
Opportunity for recourse.
Should you have concerns about the professional behavior of a REALTOR®, the state and your local real estate boards or associations take these matters very seriously and work quickly to resolve any issues.
Your REALTOR ® has access to the real estate board’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
The MLS system is the single most powerful tool for buying and selling a home. It is a complex information-sharing and cooperative marketing network created by REALTORS® to help consumers buy and sell homes.
