Are you buying or selling a home? This is one of the most important transactions you'll ever make, and you already know you need a professional to guide you through the process. But what are your options for real estate agents, and what are the differences between them? Real estate brokers, agents, and REALTORS® are all property pros who can help buyers and sellers, but they have different qualifications and responsibilities. Whether you're buying your first home or turning over yet another investment property, it's never too late to brush up on their backgrounds and understand the distinctions between your professional options. Instead of using these terms interchangeably, make sure you know what each word means.

At Cressy & Everett Real Estate, our real estate agents and REALTORS® are committed to representing every client with compassion and transparency.
