The Code ensures that consumers are served by requiring REALTORS® to cooperate with each other in furthering clients' best interests.
The REALTOR® Code of Ethics distinguishes REALTORS® from licensed agents and brokers who do not join the association. All REALTORS® pledge to uphold the principles contained on this foundational document. The Code of Ethics outlines a REALTOR’S® obligations to clients, colleagues, and the general public. Anyone who believes a REALTOR® has violated the Code of Ethics may file a complaint.
