Working With a Realtor


"REALTOR®" and "real estate agent" are not interchangeable, although some real estate agents might like them to be. The term REALTOR® is a registered certification mark that identifies the quality of services rendered by licensed real estate agents who are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). All real estate agents are not REALTORS®, but all REALTOR®members are real estate agents. REALTOR® members are committed to a strict code of ethics known as the REALTOR® Code, and are the only ones who have the right to list your property on the MLS® Systems of their local real estate boards. To correctly be referred to as a REALTOR®, a real estate agent must be a member of CREA.

Here are 10 smart questions to ask your prospective Realtor. But remember, this is just a starting point. Your REALTOR® should be willing to answer any questions you have. After all, that's why you hire the pros.

  1. How long have you been in the business?
  2. What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?
  3. How will your marketing plan meet my needs?
  4. Will you provide references?
  5. What separates you from your competition?
  6. May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?
  7. Can you help me find other professionals?
  8. How much do you charge?
  9. What if I'm unhappy with the service?
  10. What haven't I asked you that I need to know?
