All Realtors are real estate agents, but not all real estate agents are Realtors. Real estate agents pass state exam and receive a license.

Both are not same. Both of them might have licenses to sell but then realtor is under trademark. This means that they are a member of the NAR, National Association of Realtors. Real estate agent & real estate broker both have a different license. Means a real estate broker must actually complete additional coursework beyond what a real estate agent must complete.

A real estate agent is a generic term for someone who helps people sell and/or buy real estate. A Realtor is a real estate agent that has taken special classes to earn the REALTOR(r) designation. A broker typically is the deal maker in a real estate transaction who works for the *seller* and keeps the seller's interest in mind. A buyer's agent helps people looking to *buy* real estate and keeps the buyer's best interests in hand. A real estate agent often works for both sellers and buyers, often in the same transaction.

Thanks to elaborate my definition.
