Diffences Between a Tooele County Real Estate Agent & a Broker?

What is the Difference Between a Tooele County Real Estate Agent and a Broker?

You’ve probably heard the terms real estate agent, broker, REALTOR®, listing agent and buyer’s agent. But do you know what they mean and the differences between them?

Here are the definitions of terms you may encounter on your Tooele County real estate agent search:

1.Real estate agent: Agents are licensed sales people. They are not real estate brokers. In fact, they must work for an employing broker and cannot work independently. An agent works under the broker's guidance and legal protection. Real estate agents are required to undergo education pertaining to real estate law and ethics.

2.Real estate broker: A real estate broker has more education than an agent, they can work independently, and they can hire other real estate agents. While many of the responsibilities of an agent and a broker are interchangeable when it comes to customers, the role and qualifications for each are incredibly different. Typically, a broker is more of a manager for a real estate company. Brokers have to undergo more extensive education than agents in relation to business management.

3.REALTOR®: Not all agents are REALTORS®. A real estate agent becomes a REALTOR® when he or she joins the National Association of REALTORS®.The term "REALTOR®" is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and abides by its strict Code of Ethics.

4.Listing agent: They are also known as seller’s agents because they represent the seller.A listing agent can be a real estate broker, a real estate agent and/or a REALTOR®

5.Buyer’s agent: Buyer’s agents represent the buyer. They can be a real estate broker, a real estate agent, and/or a REALTOR®

Often people use the term Broker to broadly apply to everyone that sells real estate...here it means 72 hours more of education, more responsibllity if you choose...and liability if you choose it or not.
