THE ROYAL LEPAGE COMMITMENT
Through it all, the personal and professional commitment of the REALTOR® is to ensure that a seller and
buyer are brought together in an agreement that provides each with a “win” that is fair and equitable.
The motivation is easy to understand. For most brokerages, they receive no compensation unless and
until the transaction is complete.
Not every real estate salesperson or broker is a REALTOR®. That term and the familiar Block “R” logo are
trademarked by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) in association with the National
Association of REALTORS® in the United States. CREA also owns the MLS® trademark. Both trademarked
logos can only be used in Canada by members of CREA who accept and respect a strict Code of Ethics.
The MLS® database is operated by member boards in various provinces and in Ontario by real estate
boards belonging to the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). The boards provide an ongoing
inventory of available properties and ensure maximum exposure of properties listed for sale. Most
resale homes in Ontario are listed and sold through the MLS® systems of a member real estate board.
For peace of mind, ensure the individual seeking to represent you is both a registrant of the Real Estate
Council of Ontario and a member of OREA - permitted to be called a REALTOR®. Check the RECO website
for a searchable list of registrants.

THE ROYAL LEPAGE COMMITMENT
The typical actions, research steps, procedures, processes and review stages taken by a REALTOR® to
complete a successful residential real estate transaction depend on the transaction. Some tasks may
take minutes, hours, or even days to complete, while some may not be needed.
These tasks reflect the level of skill, knowledge and attention to detail required in today’s real estate
transaction, understanding the importance of having help and guidance from someone who fully
understands the process - a REALTOR®.
REALTORS® are pledged to uphold the stringent, enforceable tenets of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics in
their professional dealing with the public. Remember, not every real estate registrant holds REALTOR®
membership or MLS® access; make sure yours does!
