EASTON — The Mid-Shore Board of Realtors welcomed 10 agents at the February new agent orientation.

Different from licensees, realtors are held to a higher standard compared to those who just have a state license.

This training helps prepare agents to be better qualified and knowledgeable. Through their association membership, realtors have access to member discounts, business resources and professional development opportunities.

One of the realtor organization’s most effective resources is advocacy, and this applies to the agent’s business interests, as well as to protecting the interests and rights of the local property owners.

By attending the ethics class and participating in an orientation, these agents learned about personal and homeowner safety, multi-list, electronic lockboxes, advocacy, education, professionalism and the numerous benefits available to them as realtors.

MSBR President Judy Germain-Dinges welcomed the new agents and encouraged them to take advantage of the education and resources the association has to officer.

Jeff Wright, a realtor who also serves on the Maryland Real Estate Commission, spoke on the role of the commission and its history of protecting the public, as well as his personal experiences in the real estate industry.

The mission of the Mid-Shore Board of Realtors is to advocate for its members and the public to preserve the right to own, transfer and use real property. MSBR provides its members with resources to conduct business professionally in accordance with the Realtor Code of Ethics.
