NAR's Code of Ethics is the one factor that distinguishes REALTORS® from other real estate agents. The Code of Ethics is universally recognized by practitioners, lawyers and laymen alike as the measure of professionalism in real estate. When you abide by the Code, it ensures your fellow practitioners and the public of a high standard of business conduct. Updated annually, in response to changes in the industry, each REALTOR® needs to review the Code when these changes occur.
The Code of Ethics is an excellent Risk Management tool. Include a copy in your listing presentation packet, to educate clients on the "REALTOR® difference". (*Courtesy of SKCAR)
