NAR Code of Ethics

NAR’s Code of Ethics, adopted in 1913, was one of the first codifications of ethical duties adopted by any business group. The Code ensures that consumers are served by requiring REALTORS® to cooperate with each other in furthering clients’ best interests. REALTORS® must complete ethics training, meeting specific learning objectives and criteria, within three-year cycles. The next cycle ends on December 31, 2024. Failure to complete the ethics training is a violation of membership, which can lead to suspension of membership and possible termination.
