Upcoming Code of Ethics courses
All REALTORS® must complete the required Code of Ethics class by the end of 2021. Failure to complete the course by year’s end will result in the suspension of your REALTOR® membership.
REALTORS® take a big leap toward ending discrimination.
A new Standard of Practice has been added to Article 10 of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics that is not limited to actions while providing real estate services or real estate transactions. Since REALTORS® cannot shed at will their high standard of providing equal services to all, the new Standards applies to REALTORS®’ actions anytime, by any communications method.

In today’s market with such low inventory, listing agents are routinely experiencing multiple offers on listings and buyers’ agents are presenting offers that often compete with other buyers’ offers.
