Membership in The Greater Waterbury Board of REALTORS®, Inc.
Why Become a REALTOR®?
The State of Connecticut licenses real estate brokers, real estate agents and real estate appraisers. The State enacts laws and implements regulations which guide licensees in the conduct of their real estate business.
REALTORS® are more than real estate licensees. They belong to one of the largest trade Associations in the nation and adhere to its strict Code of Ethics. The term REALTOR® is a trademark term registered to the National Association of REALTORS® (N.A.R.). The National Association grants authority to local Boards (or Associations) of REALTORS® to use the terms within their assigned jurisdictional area, subject to certain criteria.
In order to use the trademark terms, local board members must agree to abide by state laws and the Board’s Bylaws. Most importantly, REALTOR® members hold themselves accountable under the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, which is more stringent than the laws and regulations in the State of Connecticut. In short, REALTORS® hold themselves to a much higher standard of conduct than real estate licensees.
If you want to be a professional that is dedicated, sensitive to your client’s needs, current on the “market area” and fully educated in the finest points of the real estate industry, you want to become a REALTOR®.
