REALTOR® is a brand, it means the licensed individual pays dues to the National Association of REALTORS® and to the State Association of REALTORS® and to the local Board of REALTORS®.

It is *not* the job, but many people think it is.

You must be a licensed real estate agent to sell real estate. You do not have to be a REALTOR® to sell real estate.

A licensed agent is the "entry level" for the job. A Broker has a higher level of training. You must work as a licensed sales agent for a Broker for 3 years before you can take the Broker training and then exam to become a Broker.

There's no such thing as an unlicensed real estate agent.
