The Code of Ethics establishes the foundation on how REALTORS® are to operate as professionals in the Real Estate Industry. Not every Real Estate Professional is a REALTOR®; only those who adhere to the 17 Articles of the Code of Ethics which defines a higher standard of professionalism and behavior in three categories: Duties to Customers and Clients, Duties to the Public, and Duties to other REALTORS®. By becoming a REALTOR®, members agree to the duties and responsibilities outlined in the Standards of Practice for each of the 17 Articles, and are subject to be sanctioned if found to be in violation of any article.
If you are a REALTOR®, please take the time and familiarize yourself with the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics, as this is the foundation on how to conduct your business. If you have any questions on the Code of Ethics, or would like training, please call SRCAR® at (951)894-2571.
