Are you looking for a rewarding career that helps people achieve the American dream of homeownership? Then a career as a Texas REALTOR® could be exactly what you’re looking for. But what does it mean to be a Texas REALTOR®?

Texas REALTORS® Are Held to a Higher Ethical Standard

Not all real estate agents are REALTORS®. REALTORS® pledge to abide by a Code of Ethics that goes beyond what’s required by law, keeping buyer’s and seller’s interests first and setting high standards for professional behavior.

Read the REALTOR® Code of Ethics

Texas REALTORS® Do More Than Help You Buy and Sell Real Estate

Texas REALTORS® fight to protect the rights of property owners. They fight proposals that would increase the burdens on buying, selling, and owning real estate. And they bring property-owners concerns to the Legislature, regulatory agencies, and local authorities.
