The REALTOR© Difference

Much of the time the term REALTOR© is used in a general sense to denote a real estate licensee. However, only about half of all licensed real estate agents are REALTORS©. In order to become a REALTOR© a real estate professional must distinguish themselves by learning and voluntarily agreeing to be bound by professional Standards of Practice and most importantly the REALTOR© Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics is a living document that constantly evolves to provide the highest levels of service and accountability in real estate transactions. Only members of the National Association of REALTORS© have achieved this status. The Woodall Team is proud that all of our licensed professionals are REALTORS©.

Real estate transactions involve the single largest purchase that most individuals and families are likely to make in their lifetime. It makes sense that consumers would want to rely upon an individual that is fully committed to ethical business practices and has made such assurances a part of their work history and future pledge. All of the Articles within the Code of Ethics are vital, but Article I summarizes the importance of using a REALTOR© by stating that, “REALTORS© protect and promote their clients’ interests while treating all parties honestly.” This encapsulates the integrity and professionalism that you can expect from one of our REALTORS©.
