The terms Agent, Broker and Realtor® are often used interchangeably, howver they have very different meanings. In Colorado, a person must be licensed in order to sell Real Estate. Standards set by the State that cover the minimal education, examinations and experience needed to become licensed. After receiving a real estate license, Agents committed to professionalism, and the highest standards of ethics, join their Local and National "Association of Realtors", the world's largest professional trade association.
Only after joining the Association and subscribing to a strict "Code of Ethics" (which goes well beyond state law) can the real estate Agent be called a Realtor®. It is through the Realtor Association that the Agent agrees to collectively share the information on all houses listed for sale. This is done through the local MLS or Multiple Listing Service.
As a Realtor, and owner of my own brokerage, I pledge to give you the highest degree of professional service possible.
