Whats the difference between a Realtor and a sales person?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX of Valencia (Hall of Fame) 30 year Valencia Resident BRE# 01215778

Let's say you walk into a store, any store, and want to buy something.  The person at the counter has a set number of items to choose from and their job is to sell you one of the product.  Their job is to help you purchase an item that is in their market.

A Realtor is a licensed professional that is obligated by law to put your best interest and needs above any and all other considerations.  This obligation is called Fiduciary.  This is the type of commitment that a Lawyer or Doctor has to their patient or client.

Simply put a sales person has a job which is fullfilled by selling you something.

A Realtor has an obligation to serve your best interest and look out for your best interest.

Respectfully,

Every licensed real estate agent has an obligation to serve their client's best interests, Tony, and is required by the licensing agency to operate by the same set of real estate laws or lose their license, isn't that true?
