By obtaining your real estate license you are not necessarily classified as a REALTOR®. The term REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, and REALTORS®, is an officially registered trademark of the National Association of REALTORS®.
Being a member of the Hattiesburg Area Association of REALTORS® means that you have agreed to subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. This Code pledges the REALTOR® to the fair treatment of sellers and buyers.
Since 1916, when the unique term REALTOR ® was first "coined" or "invented", the public has come to recognize those who use the MARKS as Members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS ®.
When a Buyer or Seller begins a search to buy or sell a home, they should know that there is a difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR®. Unlike a Real Estate Agent, a REALTOR® has committed themselves as providers of real estate-related services consistent with the Code of Ethics and the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and competence.
In addition to having a license to sell real estate, a REALTOR® is a member of a Professional Trade Association - in our case, the Hattiesburg Area Association of REALTORS® (HAAR), Mississippi Association of REALTORS® (MAR), and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The trade associations' work to enhance property values and work closely with policy makers at all levels to protect the rights of private property owners.
