Code of Ethics
RESPONSIBILITIES OF A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL
As REALTORS®, our success isn’t measured by the bottom line. It’s measured by the trust of our clients and customers and the esteem in which we’re held by our colleagues and competitors. The National Association was founded with the goal of uniting the real estate profession through high standards to protect buyers and sellers. More than 100 years after its adoption, the Code of Ethics continues to be what sets us apart as REALTORS®.
The Code of Ethics is a living document. Real estate is a dynamic business, and as long as we serve the public, the Code will evolve and dominate our daily professional lives. To that end, the National Association of REALTORS® constantly revisits, reviews and improves the Code. As an association, DAR educates its member REALTORS® on important changes to the Code, and provides mandatory Code of Ethics training to reaffirm our commitment to integrity, competence and fair dealing.
