The National Association of Realtors (NAR), is a trade association of real estate professionals. It has a code of ethics, first adopted in 1913, and was one of the first codifications of ethical duties adopted by any business group.
The code ensures that consumers are best served when NAR members co-operate with each other to further clients’ best interests.
The leadership of the NAR has devised the code and it is frequently revised and updated.
It is not the result of any legislation, nor subject to approval by any legislative body.
