About the terms REALTOR®  and MLS®

What is a REALTOR®?

The trademark REALTOR® identifies only those real estate professionals who are members of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and, as such, subscribe to a high standard of professional service and a strict Code of Ethics. The term REALTOR® does not mean "real estate agent" or "broker".

Every member of the Ottawa Real Estate Board and the Renfrew County Real Estate Board is also a member of CREA. All REALTORS® across Canada are governed by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, which states that REALTORS® are committed to:

  • Professional competent service

  • Absolute honesty and integrity in business dealings

  • Co-operation with and fairness to all

  • Personal accountability through compliance with CREA's Standards of Business Practice

What is the MLS® System?

An MLS® System is a co-operative selling system operated and promoted by a Board or Association in association with the MLS® Marks. An MLS® System includes an inventory of listings of participating REALTORS®, and ensures a certain level of accuracy of information, professionalism and co-operation amongst REALTORS® to effect the purchase and sale of real estate.

The Ottawa Real Estate Board operates the MLS® system for the members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board, the Renfrew County Real Estate Board, and the Cornwall and District Real Estate Board. OREB enforces a set of Board-specific MLS® Rules and Regulations that apply to all of the above members' listings.

Only a REALTOR® can list properties on his or her Board's local MLS® system.
