Why Use a Realtor

First and foremost, not all real estate agents are REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a trademark of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and any agent who uses this term as part of their professional identity must be a member of NAR and their State and Local REALTOR® Associations.

You may be thinking, "So what!" This is important to you because REALTORS® subscribe to a Code of Ethics, which requires they conduct business honestly and fairly. Under the Rules and Ethics Code, you as a consumer are offered protection should you feel you have been treated unfairly. You may contact the Association Office to file an ethics complaint or learn more here. Members are required to go through the grievance process when a complaint is filed by either buyers or sellers.

Members pay dues and other fees to maintain membership, and must complete periodic training in addition to that required by the State Licensing Board. The bottom line is that REALTORS® are in a position to provide more comprehensive services than non-members. Non-members usually operate independently and their actions are not governed by the Code of Ethics. This is an important consideration when choosing an agent to represent your interests; because should you have a complaint against a non-REALTOR®, you have no recourse at the local level.

RACI Moving to Indiana Regional MLS

Attention members: RACI has moved to the Indiana Regional MLS system.  CIRMLS is still available for reference at this time but has not been updated since Friday, February 21st.  All listing input and maintenance must be done in IRMLS.  
                        

If you have an listing from CIRMLS that is opened for listing maintenance in IRMLS, be prepared to address all required fields in the IRMLS system.  Below are two documents to help identify the additional fields available.  One is the IRMLS Residential Data Input form (all IRMLS forms are available in the Zipform library, click the Select Library button and choose Indiana Regional MLS).  The other document that is helpful is the Comparison Sheet available below.  It is a listing of all fields in both CIRMLS and IRMLS with required fields from each system identified. 

                                    
The following are documents and links to help you through the transition.

Why use a REALTOR®
Whether you are buying or selling a home, your REALTOR® can help make your real estate transaction a successful one. Only real estate professionals who are a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) can call themselves a REALTOR®. The term REALTOR® is a trademark and any agent who uses this term as part of their professional identity must be a member of the National, State and Local REALTOR® Associations.
All REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public.  Under the code, you as a consumer are offered protection should you feel you have been treated unfairly.  You may contact the Association Office to file an ethics complaint or learn more here.  Members are required to go through the grievance process when a complaint is filed by either buyers or sellers.

REALTORS® are dedicated to serving the real estate needs of our community and are in a position to provide more comprehensive services than a non-member licensee.
