Your Agent Can Help
Real estate agents:
your guide through the real estate wilderness
Think of your sales representative like a wilderness
guide. Just as the wilderness guide keeps you
on the right path and away from danger on a
backwoods adventure, your real estate agent
expertly navigates you through the complicated
areas when buying a home and steers you clear
of costly pitfalls.
In order to practice real estate, all agents
must be licensed and complete courses on topics
relevant to your home search and transaction.
In addition to holding a valid real estate license,
most Royal LePage agents are also REALTORS®.
The term REALTOR ® is a trademark that identifies
a licensed real estate agent as a member of
The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA).
All REALTORS ® make a pledge to adhere to
a strict code of ethics and standards.
A real estate agent or REALTOR ® is an expert

a price and closing the deal.
