Well, you know there are a lot of UNprofessional REALTORS, so it IS an important distinction.  LOL

No different from the wanna bees that claim they are 'Luxury Residential Realtors®"  I never heard of an LRR designation and just what contitutes one? Let's see the sales numbers; then we will decide!

This is more of a synonym, not an oxymoron, with an emphasis on "moron".

Strange!  Did this agent think that statement would give them a step up over other agents?

Similar to when someone tells you they are "Honest".

Sometimes when they tell you that they are something it is time to scrutinize them a little more, like "Honest Joe" the used car dealer.

I get and see things from other agents with stuff like that all the time. In one ear and out the other!

In this case, professional is appropriate as an adjective but not as part of the title.

maybe trying to communicate this is his chosen profession, not a hobby or part time/side job?

Probably just trying to seem professional, just using the word does not help that case at all however.

It's a good think he's a professional.  Wouldn't want any old amateur Realtor leaving cards in the box!

Annette there are some agents who work partime and call themselves professional . Then there ar some of us who say they are professional but act otherwise . It good to see someone say the are professional but should also tell what he or she does that sets them apart from other agents who use this designation
