This article should be corrected or taken down. It is incorrect. You do not have to become a broker to become a Realtor. A Realtor belongs to a professional organization called National Association of Realtors, and they are dedicated to fair practice in real estate. The only requirement for being a realtor is that you become a licensed agent. Realtors are bound by a canon of ethics. For further clarification, contact the National Association of Realtors.
