REALTOR® and “real estate agent” are often used interchangeably. But they aren’t the same thing. While both sell real estate, only a REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, bound by the professional standards of the 100+-year-old REALTOR® Code of Ethics.

From honest representation and clear communication to cooperative involvement with other REALTORS®, the Code of Ethics ensures that REALTORS® are educated, equipped, and ready to serve you.

When you’re looking for a trustworthy, knowledgeable guide through the property-buying or selling process, no one else can offer the service of a certified REALTOR®.

Please note that the REALTORS® available in the Find a REALTOR® section are primarily stationed in Lehigh, Northampton, and Carbon counties. They can, however, help you with buying and selling needs that extend outside of these three counties.
