The Code ensures that consumers are served by requiring REALTORS® to cooperate with each other in furthering clients' best interests.

Realtor ethics are guidelines to help strengthen customer awareness, trust, and legal practices in the industry. Ethical standards create consistency in the profession. They also make the consequences of ignoring these rules clear.

So, NAR has good reason to set ground rules for behavior in the profession. The Code of Ethics & Standard of Practice isn't an imaginary benchmark, but a meticulous ethical framework. It protects both buyers and sellers and makes sure that Realtors cooperate.

There are several common themes in the Code of Ethics that outline best practices for real estate as a whole. These themes include:

  • Honesty and fairness
  • Competency and integrity
  • Maintaining high personal and professional standards
  • Constant improvement
  • Community support and awareness
