the realtor® promise to home buyers & sellers

we are realtors® we do business by a code of ethics.

The Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS® is a document which is universally recognized by lawyers and laymen as the measure of professionalism in the real estate industry.  It outlines the highest ideals of professional performance the public and other REALTORS® have the right to expect from REALTORS®.  For more information click here.

The basis for filing a complaint against a REALTOR® should be an allegation by the complainant that a REALTOR® violated one or more of the articles of the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS®.  Click here for a brochure on filing an ethics complaint.
