Benefits of becoming a Colorado REALTOR®


REALTORS are held to a higher ethical standard than licensed agents and must adhere to a Code of Ethics.


REALTORS are members of the National Association of REALTORS®, which means they have access to a wide range of resources including classes, seminars, and certification opportunities.


REALTORS are part of local REALTOR associations that are active in community service, economic development, local politics, and other neighborhood associations.
