Professional Standards & Ethics
A Higher Professional StandardA real estate professional’s membership in the Association distinguishes him or her from non-members. REALTORS® voluntarily accept the obligation to meet the standards of practice and conduct outlined in the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) CODE OF ETHICS AND STANDARDS OF PRACTICE.
This Code of Ethics represents the standard of business practices and establishes a public and professional consensus upon which REALTORS® Members are judged by their peers. Adherence to this nationally recognized Code of Ethics assures the public that a REALTOR® will conduct his or her business in accordance with the Code of Ethics and will provide services that both meet a higher standard than those mandated by law and promote the best interests of the clients and the real estate profession.
Members of the Association are also obligated to conduct themselves and their businesses in accordance with the Association’s rules and regulations, Constitution and Bylaws, as well as the MLS rules and the Bylaws and Constitutions of WeSERV and NAR.
The Association has the responsibility to enforce these standards of professional ethics and conduct. For monetary business disputes, this is accomplished through arbitration or mediation proceedings. For violations of the Code of Ethics, this is accomplished through disciplinary proceedings.
