REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time within a three year cycle. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.
REALTOR® members ascribe to the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. The NAR Code of Ethics is the standard to which all REALTORS® are held and is a promise to the public that when dealing with a real estate agent who is a REALTOR®, they can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters.
Only REALTORS® pledge to abide by the Code of Ethics, and only REALTORS® are held accountable for their ethical behavior. Some of the basic principles of the Code of Ethics include:
- Protect and promote your clients interest, but be honest with all parties.
- REALTORS® shall be careful at all times to present a true picture in their advertising and representations to the public.
- Assure, whenever possible, that transactional details are in writing.
