Sometimes on AR I run into a phrase “Professional Realtor”. And it does not come form the public; it comes from the agents, who refer to themselves this way.
Makes me wonder.
Public can call us whatever they like. They do not have to know the difference. But it seems professionals do or should know, so if they misuse it, can they call themselves “professional”
Or is it that we consider paying the NAR dues a professional activity?
If, however, it is used instead of the terms “agent, broker, or real estate licensee” than how the wrong use makes us come out as professionals?
Professional Realtor sounds to me like Professional amateur... I believe "professional" does not go with either of them.
