As a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, you pledge to follow the Code of Ethics, which outlines your obligations to clients, colleagues, and the general public.
New members must complete a Code of Ethics new-member orientation program within the first year of REALTOR® membership. Some local association bylaws may indicate a shorter time frame, which takes precedence over the national requirements.
Established members must complete a Code of Ethics course once every three years. All members are grouped into the same three-year cycle.
If your agent is a Texas REALTOR®, they are bound by the strict REALTOR® Code of Ethics. Texas REALTORS® has procedures in place if you need to file a complaint related to a real estate transaction against one of our REALTOR® members. To file a complaint, click here.
