Ethics in Real Estate
As your agent, I promise to adhere to a strict code of ethics in conducting any and all activities related to your sale or purchase of a home. In some businesses, simply doing what is legal may be good enough. But in my real estate practice I demand an ethical standard that goes above and beyond the legal requirements. The guiding principle of ethics comes from the Latin primum non nocere, meaning first do no harm. By adhering to strict ethical guidelines I will earn your trust. By establishing trust I'll build a long-term business model based on long-term clients.
As a member of the National Association of REALTORS, I am bound by our code of ethics, which you can find at:http://www.realtor.org/mempolweb.nsf/pages/Code?OpenDocument
There are rules pertaining to: Disclosure of agency, financial arrangements, following the law of the land, marketing practices, negotiation methods, how clients are charged for services, how offers are presented, confidentiality, and more. All of these rules are intended to protect your interest.
