Trademarks used by OREB Members, under license include the term REALTOR® and MLS®. Both of these terms are owned by CREA.

Let me explain a little about the trademarked terms that we, as agents use, and that you, as the public are used to hearing.

  • Both the REALTOR® and MLS® trademarks are owned by the Canadian Real Estate Association.

 

  • The term REALTOR® is not synonymous with "real estate agent", "broker" or "salesperson", and must never be used as a stand-in for any of those terms.

 

  • "REALTOR®" is not a career; it identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association and, as such, subscribes to a high standard of professional service and a strict Code of Ethics.

 

  • Every member of the Ottawa Real Estate Board is also a member of CREA, and therefore permitted to use the term REALTOR® to describe themselves.

 

So, for example, if asked what you do for a living, the correct answer would not be "I'm a REALTOR®" but rather "I'm a real estate salesperson, and I'm also a REALTOR®."
