I only express an opinion and I do not advance an argument
The sales agents IIRC used by the Villages are licensed by the state. There is no requirement for a sales agent to be a REALTOR. REALTORs have a code of ethics but sales agents have state regulations as well, but they are not as rigorous. The state laws do not require you to be a REALTOR to sell homes nor businesses.

While your other concerns regarding the possible differences between a Villages sales agent and a MLS REALTOR may sway a person on way or the other, it is unfair to suggest that those working for the Villages are somehow skirting licensing requirements.
