The REALTOR® Code of Ethics is what sets REALTORS® apart from real estate professionals.
The Code of Ethics has been a vital part of the National Association of REALTORS® for more than 100 years. Learn more about the history of the code and it where stands among the association and its members at the centennial mark.
The code is considered a living document in that it has been amended many times over the last century. It continues to grow and remain relevant to modern practitioners through annual review. Here at REALTOR® Magazine, we regularly ask ethics expert Bruce Aydt to answer questions about how the code works in real-life situations.
