WHY USE A REALTOR®


Did You Know?

The typical home sale today involves more than 200 steps from the initial contract acceptance to the day of settlement. A REALTOR® can navigate you each step along the way.

Put a REALTOR® to Work for You

REALTORS® have the knowledge, dedication and resources to coordinate a smooth transaction. Plus, REALTORS® know current real estate laws and have all the necessary forms to keep you protected throughout the home buying or selling process.

REALTORS® are different from real estate agents because they abide by a higher standard, which is the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics. They not only have to follow state licensing rules, but must also subscribe and adhere to the Code of Ethics. When making one of the largest financial decisions of your life, you want someone by your side you can trust. Not sure if your real estate agent is a REALTOR®? Simply ask them or search our website member list.

Real Estate is Our Life

All real estate licensees are not the same. REALTORS® nationwide are required to abide by a strict Code of Ethics. REALTORS® in York & Adams Counties must also complete ethics training and continuing education every two years. Not many professionals can make that claim!

REALTORS® Serve the Community

REALTORS® also serve the community to make a positive impact on where we live and work through the RAYAC Foundation:

Consumer Notice

Pennsylvania’s agency disclosure law aims to make consumers aware of the various types of real estate representation available to them. When consumers meet with REALTORS®, they will be presented with a Consumer Notice form. This form simply outlines the five types of agency representation and documents that the REALTOR® has advised you of your options. It is not a contract. When a consumer determines what type of representation they desire, another form is sign indicating permission for that relationship and duties owed to you under that relationship.
