Are You Getting Your Money's Worth?

Buying or selling a home is one of the most complicated, expensive transactions most people will ever have to go through. Many go to the closing table without an advocate by their side. Having a professional represent your interests is critical.  A good place to start is to hire a REALTOR®. Not all real estate professionals are created equally. Selling real estate for a living doesn't make you a REALTOR®.  Only members of the National Association of Realtors can call themselves REALTORS®.

Being a REALTOR® means you subscribe to a very specific code of conduct.  The preamble to our National Association of Realtors Code of Ethics sets a high standard for brokers and agents: "The term REALTOR® has come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever can justify departure from this ideal."

The industry manifests these principles in the articles of the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and the promotion of educational standards-each evolving with changes in the marketplace. More importantly, it also encompasses the personal responsibility accepted by individual REALTORS® to adhere to these ideals.
Choose your real estate professional wisely. Make sure the office hires only REALTORS® and definitely make sure the agent you hire is a REALTOR®. Here at Windhill, every advisor is a REALTOR® and we all take the REALTOR® Code of Ethics very seriously.
