The REALTOR® Commitment

You’re trusting a REALTOR® with your most valuable possession, your home. REALTORS® take this responsibility very seriously. Here’s what we promise you.

Your REALTOR® is highly trained

REALTOR® training is so rigorous that candidates often fail the pre-registration courses. Those who do pass must master a long, diverse list of subjects ranging from housing construction to family law.

Your REALTOR® is continuously trained

We keep pace with the times. All Licensed REALTORS® must take continuing education courses to make sure their knowledge on subjects like legal issues and technology are up to date.

Your REALTOR® does everything by the book

A licensed REALTOR® must be registered under provincial laws that govern exactly how real estate can and cannot be traded. These regulations are your legal guarantee of professional behavior.

Your REALTOR® is an ethical businessperson

REALTORS® must adhere to the extensive Code of Ethics of the Canadian Real Estate Association. Several provinces have additional Codes of Ethics governing the behaviour of real estate professionals. Your interests must always be put first.

Your dealings with a REALTOR® are insured

For your peace of mind, provincial regulators sponsor consumer protection programs that may require, for instance, that REALTORS® maintain Errors and Omissions Insurance. Often deposits consumers make in real estate transactions are also insured under these programs.

Opportunity for recourse

Should you have concerns about the professional behavior of a REALTOR®, provincial regulators and your local real estate board or association take these matters very seriously and work quickly to resolve any issues.

Your REALTOR® has access to the Multiple Listing Service® and Real Estate Weekly

The MLS® System is the single most powerful tool for buying and selling a home. It is a complex information sharing and cooperative marketing network created by REALTORS® to help consumers buy and sell homes. The Real Estate Weekly is an Association-owned newspapers and as such, only REALTORS® have access to this medium, which distributes over 60,000 papers per week. The paper is distributed throughout Edmonton and surrounding areas as far north as Westlock, south to Wetaskiwin, east to Ardrossan and west to Alberta Beach and now includes Strathcona and Sturgeon counties.
