About the REALTOR® Badge

Why Work with a REALTOR®?

All real estate agents are not the same. Only real estate agents who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature.

What's In It for Me?

When a real estate licensee joins the Association of REALTORS®, they earn the right to call themselves a REALTOR®. REALTORS® pledge to adhere to a Code of Ethics, which means that all their activities in the conduct of their business must satisfy the strict obligations of the Code. The term REALTOR® has come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations.

I'm Still Not Convinced

Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make, and you need someone you can trust, someone who can guide you through this complex transaction, someone who is more than just a real estate agent. You need a REALTOR®.

The REALTOR® Badge provides assurance to the consumer that the real estate agent is an active REALTOR® in good standing with NAR.

In California, the badge displays a link to the California Department of Real Estate, and when possible, the REALTOR®'s market areas, areas of specialization, committee assignments, and photo.

About Me
Born and raised in the Sacramento area, I recently retired from a 33 year career in education. My life-long-love of the coast led me to become a Sea Ranch property owner in 1999. I designed and built my home in 2002 and now reside here fulltime. I know the area, love the natural environment with all its wildlife and have a sincere interest in the community with its strong focus on the arts. As a practicing artist I can help buyers and sellers visualize the possibilities!
