About realtor

For some reason, this word is often mispronounced as “real-a-ter"instead of the proper “ree-ul-ter.” Incidentally, realtors insist thatthis is a term originally trademarked by the National Association ofReal Estate Boards (now renamed the “National Association of Realtors” ),that it must be capitalized, and that all non-members of thatassociation are mere “real estate associates.” Common usage, however,calls both “real estate agents,” despite their protests.

realtor Meaning(s)
