The National Association of Apartment Locators is a professional trade association for the apartment locating industry. Most states require apartment locators to be licensed real estate agents and hold an active real estate license, just like a Realtor. Apartment locators must abide by the real estate laws of their state. Apartment locators have a legal and ethical responsibility to the renters they represent, and the apartment communities they work with.
Every real estate agent in the United States agrees to a fiduciary responsibility when they activate their real estate license. One of the most important core values taught at every real estate school, is the importance of trust and ethics when representing another person’s interest. Every apartment locator is legally bound to put the needs of their client above their own.
