Realtors Expand Code of Ethics to Include Members' Personal Conduct
Prior to this, it only applied to a realtor's conduct during real estate-related activities
Last week, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) passed a new policy that expands its code of ethics to cover members’ conduct outside of their real estate duties.
The new personal conduct policy makes it an ethics violation for members to use hate and harassing speech in public toward certain protected classes, including race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Prior to this regulation, NAR's code of ethics only applied to a realtor's conduct during real estate-related activities.
