Being a real estate agent involves getting licensed in the state you want to work in and hanging your license with a broker. There are 1,150,141 Realtors as of March 25, 2016, out of about 2,500,000 real estate agents. About half of all agents are Realtors. Being a Realtor comes with many perks besides just being able to say you are a Realtor. Many MLS boards require their members be a Realtor to gain access to the MLS. If you do not become a Realtor, you may not have access to MLS, which is vitally important to real estate agents.
