Code of Ethics

2016-COE-PosterNot all real estate licensees are REALTORS®.

Only those licensees who belong to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), through their local and state associations, and who agree to abide by its strict Code of Ethics, are REALTORS®.

To ensure that all REALTORS® are informed about the Code, it’s various Standards of Practice, and any changes to it, NAR requires all members to take 2.5 hours of training every few years.

The current training cycle is January 1, 2013—December 31, 2016. 

If you have not completed a Code of Ethics training during this time, BRR offers an “Ethics and Professionalism” class that fulfills this requirement (check our education calendar for upcoming dates) or you can take the training online through NAR.

Your broker or other real estate schools may also offer ethics training, but please confirm that it has been approved by NAR to meet this requirement. IMPORTANT: If you have taken an approved Code of Ethics training class through your broker or another provider, please send a copy of your completion certificate to
