This Connecticut Real Estate Professional Has Ethics

This Connecticut Real Estate Professional Has Ethics

As a real estate professional I am bound by a Code of Ethics to conduct my business in a legal, honest and morally correct manner to my clients and my fellow real estate agents.   It is a stylized way of keeping by the Golden Rule of 'Do Unto Others'. 

This Connecticut Real Estate Professional Has Ethics

Every agent that belongs to the National Association of Realtors is bound by the real estate Code of Ethics. In order to ensure that agents are always attentive to their obligations, they must take a refresher class on Ethics once within each 4 year period. Failure to take this class would mean immediate loss of license.

As a profession, real estate agents are only one of 4 required to work to a professional code. The other 3 being medicine, law and engineering. As a degreed Mechanical Engineer, I am bound by both even though I no longer work as an engineer.

Even without the mandate to take the class, with the evolution of the business and the laws that re changed, it serves as a refresher to the techniques used to promote the real estate business as well as the possibilities of ways that less than honest agents might attempt to circumvent the laws.

As a profession, real estate professionals are encouraged to police ourselves as a way of protecting not only the clients with whom we do business, but also to get dishonest agents out of the business.

A 3 hour class once every 4 years is a small challenge to take to keep our self respect. This Connecticut Real estate agent has ethics, and I have a piece of paper to prove it.
