While many people use the terms Realtor®, Real Estate Agent and Real Estate Broker interchangeably, there really are some differences.
A Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors®.
A Real Estate Agent is someone who has a real estate license in their state. As far as I know, they are required to be supervised by a Real Estate Broker who has a certain number of years of experience as a Real Estate Agent, has taken additional education and testing and has some responsibility for the actions of the Real Estate Agents they manage.
A Real Estate Broker is someone who has a real estate license for a number of years, has taken additional education and testing to get their Real Estate Broker license and can manage other Real Estate Agents and have their own real estate brokerage.
As Bird Dogs, Wholesalers and Real Estate Investors, Real Estate Agents, Real Estate Brokers and Realtors can all provide essentially the same services they go about in very different ways. Some offering to broker deals between parties and requiring a license and others buying and selling properties from their own portfolio and, in many cases but not all, not requiring a license.
Real Estate Broker Daily Follow Up Checklist
Since we use the “Real Estate Agent” Highrise Tag for Real Estate Agents, Real Estate Brokers and Realtors, I recommend you use the daily checklist for processing your Real Estate Agent contacts for processing through all your Real Estate Broker contacts each day instead of separating them out.
