What is a Realtor®? The short answer is that a Realtor is a real estate agent that is also a member of the National Association of Realtors® or NAR. Not all real estate agents have agreed to the professional code of conduct that Realtors uphold, and not all real estate agents are members of NAR. Although you can legally buy and sell property with a real estate agent, there are many benefits to working with a real estate agent that is also a Realtor®.
In Idaho, in order to sell real estate, a person must become a licensed real estate agent and work under a real estate broker. When you buy or sell property, you are actually working with a broker. Sales agents represent the broker and the actual responsibility for the transaction resides with the broker. Realtors® work under a broker. Without a broker, a Realtor® cannot assist in the purchase or sale of a home.
