Article excerpt: Before discussing how one can become a Realtor it is important to provide an overview of what the term actually means. The reason for this is that many erroneously believe that a Realtor is the same as a real estate agent. Although technically both perform similar tasks within the housing market, being a real estate agent does not automatically allow the person to describe himself or herself as a Realtor. The term Realtor can only be applied to those real estate agents who have become members of the US National Association of Realtors.
