REALTOR® - The Way It Should Be

This is a post I just couldn't pass up, and you shouldn't either.  I am always looking for ways to help other members, clients and friends with challenges they may face in trying to reach their business and personal goals!  This post may not do that, but I do feel that if you're in Real Estate and you're a REALTOR®, then this will be useful information for you!

I have noticed on many posts, including the title's, where members and writers are not using the preferred method of the word REALTOR®,as expressed by your association.  I hope to keep my Blog interesting by bringing you a gamut or information, tools, useful ideas, and tips on how to make your life easier, and your business better.

   Here's the first one in a series of future posts:  In order to properly designate an agent as a REALTOR® member, you must know how to add the registered trade mark™ symbol to the word REALTOR.  (BTW - REALTOR is always capitalized)  To add the symbol, hold down the "Alt" key on the keyboard while typing 0174 on the number keypad.


*** IMPORTANT TIP:  Don't use the numbers above the "qwertyuiop" row of letters.


If you're using a laptop,
hold down the "Alt" and the "fn" (function) key, then press 0174 from the keys displaying numbers the same color as the "fn" key.  The result will be: ®  There is a complete set of alternative characters like this one built into your computer.  To find all the characters in your computer, Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and Character Map, this will launch a program that will show you each of the symbols and their shortcut keys.

For an example, find the character "½" and look to the lower right corner: you'll see that it is made by using Alt 0189.   Of course, not all extended characters work in all situations. Experiment to see which make sense for the job at hand. This post is for the few...the proud... the REALTORS®!!

Some others you may find useful:  [ Alt 0169  © ],   [ Alt 0153  ™ ],   [ ALT 0162 ¢ ]  and   [ Alt 0216 Ø ]

Thanks for the tip!

Brad thanks for the reminder I am always forgetting the shortcuts for these. I will admit REALTOR® looks better than REALTOR(R). Not to mention the best part that I really hate to admit, I have never used the alt fn with the blue numbers on my laptop as I never figured out how to. THANKS!
Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) over 11 years ago
Thanks Brad!  The degree symbol used to work for me by doing alt 0167...but then it stopped working and I get this symbol instead §  Do you have a clue as to what it might be?  I end up using the one in the char map under system tools, but that's a pain in the tush.  I'm looking for degree like it's 117°  outside right now, or set the oven at 350°

Thanks!

I knew there was a reason to use AR to more than just promote myself.
Posted by David Spencer, Show Me real estate in Kansas City (Keller Williams Northland) over 11 years ago

Odd.  I was all excited and tried that (after looking at the character map and confirming) and it gave me J, not the sign I was seeking. 

Any ideas?

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) over 11 years ago
Mary, when you get to the character map, click the box that says advanced.  If it is set on UNICODE, change it to say "Windows:Western" is the proper character mapping.  Let me know if that fixes it. If not, we'll go to level 2 support!  (friendly operator is standing by...) :-)

David - you'd be surprised!!  :-) Active Rain is "The Rain"  Read the book The Rainmaker!  You'll love it!

Tricia - not sure what it is, but if you select the character map, pick the symbol you want, it will tell you in the lower right corner what the shortcut key is.  If you don't get it to work, come back and let me know.

Melissa - thanks for the bookmark, if we add up all the seconds Realtors can save by NOT having to search for these symbols, it would be huge!!

Brad - none of the links I'd checked out before made any sense for using the Alt keys on a notebook computer. Thanks for the tip. Hope you don't mind, but I went back to my January post on the various uses of the Alt key and added a link to this post to save notebook users some grief.

Posted by Marlene Bridges, Laguna Homes|Laguna Condos|Laguna Real Estate (Village Real Estate Services, Inc.) over 11 years ago

guilty as charged... I often only capitalize the R - and another one that works is alt, ctrl, r

at least in word that works

Michelle - Ding Ding...that's funny...sorry!  Glad you got it, you're welcome!

Sandy - thanks!

Rebecca - one a day, that's all I ask!  :-)  Nice to learn a new trick once in a while, great job!

Mary - that symbol means you have the settings wrong.  All you do is click the advanced box, and change the UNICODE or whatever it is, to Windows:Western, then try again. Let me know if that works for you.  :-)

Stacie - that's 10 minutes you shouldn't have to waste, that's what my posts are really all about, and your comment is exactly why I keep posting this stuff.  The kudos really go to you for finding this post! Thanks!

Cheri' - no excuses now, we'll be looking for it on all you posts!!  LOL  :-)  Thanks for the comment.

Sharon - thanks for the "Link Love" to your January post!  Sometimes the best things in life are right in front of us, and we just don't see them.  Take a close look at your keyboard and laptop, I bet if you look real hard, you'll find 5 or more things that you never use or even knew were there.  I'm guilty too. :-)

Neal - you are definately the ®eal Deal!  :-) Thanks for commenting!

Missy, if you do forget, just bookmark this post and you can come back, say hi, have a cup o java, and cut & paste it from here, or get the Alt code again.  The point is, I like when you come around and leave such nice comments!

Ravi - did you not believe me?  LOL!  Glad it works for you my friend!  It should work for every computer user.

Ray - I'll come check out your UFC response after I finish here and upload my next post. Thanks!

Joan - you just do whatever your little heart desires!  :-)  Cut and paste is even quicker as long as it doesn't take you 10 clicks to get to the page that has the graphic...You know best!  BTW - How's that recliner doing?  I still go back and look at your photo often. :-)

Marlene - It's funny you asked that, and I am glad you did!  The proper way to pronounce REALTOR®, is like this:  Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1) - Cite This Source Re·al·tor      /ˈriəltər, -ˌtɔr, ˈril-/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[ree-uhl-ter, -tawr, reel-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation Trademark.

a person who works in the real-estate business and is a member of the National Association of Real Estate Boards, or one of its constituent boards, and abides by its Code of Ethics.


Many people say it like "Real i tor", but why?..... there is no "I" in REALTOR®

Bud - nice to see you back!!  I'm glad you liked this post.  It seems like such a small thing, but in the eyes of the NAR, REALTOR®, and the logo, these are important things for Agents to know.  I have many friends in this business that I felt this would help, I too get the question often.  Thanks Bud!

BTW - I noticed your first iPod Nano post, and comments already, glad to see you took my advice.  I think you'll find your way in the "rain", it just takes a little time to get into the swing of things and understand how it all works.  I'm still not there yet, but I don't give up easily, and I'm not a quitter.  Glad to see the same from you Bud.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus) over 11 years ago

Brad - Good post.  I typically edit my blogs in MS Word and there I can hold down the CONTROL & ALT with the R to get the ®  and it does cut and paste as in this example - REALTOR®.  However, I noticed it does not work in the AR editor which I typically use for my comments like this one.

Here is a tip you might want to work it - you notice how many blogs and comments have too much space between paragraphs and lines.

This can be avoided by hitting the RETURN Key with the SHIFT KEY and you can have a Sig file that is laid out like mine is and not have the extra space between the lines.

Hi, Brad!

Really, thanks for sharing this tip!  This is great!  I have already been using the term, "Realtor®" from since I joined a local board.  I know I've been diligent doing this. However the way I would do it is the long way, which is to go to the Realtor® site, type in "logo" on the search bar, scroll all the way down till I could copy the word Realtor® and then paste it.  Thanks for the short cut! Such a time-saver!

Gee, thanks for this, Brad ! I knew about the © symbol being necessary, however I did not realize the letters all had to be capitalized.  Busy now making a bunch of corrections where-ever I have used that term .

Thanks again,

Thanks Doreen - I think you're pretty cool too!  :-)

Sue - the stamp is a great idea, and while on the computer, hopefully this ALT code will help you too. Thanks!!

 

Larry - since you plead guilty, we're going to let you off this time, and just put you on probation for 90 days.  That just means you have to provide excellent community consumer service in your area!!  LOL!

Posted by Kristin Small, REALTOR -GRI, Myrtle Beach Real Estate (RE/MAX Southern Shores) over 11 years ago
You're not going to believe this, when I use the Alt 0174 in AR, my screen completely goes away. Looks like I will have to use the cut and paste as well until I can get this figured out.  I am surprised no one else is having or mentioned this problem. It must have something to do with a change that was made here on AR. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I just tried it three times in a row, and lost my comment back to you all 3 times!  10 minutes later, here I am and I am not going to try it a fourth. I'll let you know what I find...if I do.  Thanks David or Kristin which ever one of you posted the comment! I think it was David, but I have been wrong before with couples who post comments!  LOL!  :-)

Cyndee - you are just too popular and famous now, you forgot about us little guys!!  LOL!  Glad you found this post useful, in fact I'm glad you even found it.  It's sad that posts get buried after time.  Reminds me of the movie "Toy Story". hahaha   B-)

Oh my - I was thinking the same about you - we see each other so rarely - I miss it and it's hard to believe it was just a few months ago - I think we both suffer from mentoring all the people we're brought into the rain - I'm at 144 and it's a job in itself at times - not complaining because I love helping - but somedays it seems like I just run out of time (like it's 1:10am here now LOL)!  I think nothing but great things where YOU'RE concerned - wish you were here so you could be my escrow guy - by the way did you see my post on Celebrations vs Closings - I think it would resonate with you!!!

Cyndee - I'd happily be your escrow guy!!  In fact, I am your escrow guy! :-)  I will always refer clients interested in coming to Clearwater Florida to you.  I could always arrange to work with you on a local level through my office in Clearwater.  I know with one call, I could make sure you and your clients are well taken care of. I have two offices there if you ever need anything at all.  Seriously, I would be honored to help you out any way I can. Here's Christina and Pamela's info just in case. If you ever need my help with anything, just call, my door's always open to you. 

Now For the rest of my response(LOL), I know we have both been busy, and I miss our chats, but I have been watching you grow over the last few months and have been very impressedwith your efforts, your blog, and the time you do put into the rain.  I have NO TIME either, but how we spend it today, determines how we'll use it in the future.  I am like you very much, in that I love to help ALL people.  I know that's why I am on this earth and I plan to try and fulfill my destiny!!  Time is the ultimate commodity and we have to use it wisely.  I am no master at it, but I am definitely enjoying the process and the journey!  CONGRATS on your 144, just don't forget about yourself, and all of your goals in life as well.  "Give, and it shall be given back to you", so don't forget to make the time to go out and get it!!  :-)

I'll head over and check out your post for some resonation right now...LOL! 

Yours Truly, The Escrow Guy (wink wink) B-)

Working my way through the manual, bit by bit. I was wondering where to find the logos, thank you :)
