The NAR Code of Ethics – A Guide for Conduct
Who is Considered a Realtor®?
A common misconception is that real estate agents and Realtors® are interchangeable terms.
They are not.
The term Realtor® is a trademark of the National Association of Realtors® and applies only to a real estate licensee that has joined the National Association of Realtors® and abides by the Realtor® Code of Ethics.
The Difference is the Code
What sets Realtors® apart from real estate agents who are not Realtors®?
- Realtors® understand the importance of "belonging." They are members of the National Association of Realtors®.
- Realtors® are required to adhere to the Realtor® Code of Ethics.
The Realtor® Code of Ethics provides standard for conduct with clients and customers, the public, and other Realtors®.
