Not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®. Only Realtors are members of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Under CREA, they are committed to the Realtor Code, which is the accepted standard of conduct for all real estate practitioners who are Realtors. It’s your guarantee of professional conduct and quality service.
As a member of CREA, your Realtor also maintains a high level of current real estate knowledge through courses, workshops and other professional development opportunities.
The bottom line is that your Realtor must act with integrity and competence on behalf of their client. The Realtor is bound by common law to act in your best interest.
Realtors rely on referrals and repeat business to build their business. By doing what’s best for their client, they are also doing what’s best for their business. It’s a win-win situation for you and your Realtor.
