FULL TIME REALTOR - Should the NAR have a new designation?
Do you ever wonder why our profession gets no or little respect?
I believe our profession gets so little respect because you can be delivering pizza one day and have a license to sell real estate the next day. Yes, I know I am simplifying this and that there are hours of class and passing a test is required.
Would you trust any other professional such as a doctor or lawyer if there was no real training or experience required to practice that profession?
As a FULL TIME Realtor, I take my responsibility seriously to help people with their real estate needs. I am tired of having part timers screw up my profession by not telling their clients that they are doing real estate on the side.
Right now, there is really now way for a real estate prospect to know if an agent is part time or full time. So why not ask the NAR to create a new designation such as FULL TIME REALTOR?
Wouldn't having such a designation with certain requirements to obtain this designation help real estate prospects choose their agent better?
