Now we all know that as realtors we help people buy or sell a home. We provide professional opinions based on the market climate, prepare and handle the transaction documents, and provide overall peace of mind during one of the largest transactions in most people's lives.
But what makes a REALTOR®?
According to the National Association of Realtors, the term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. This Code of Ethics is a split up into 17 detailed articles that describe a REALTORS duties to clients and customers, the public, and to other REALTORS.
Today at our Sales Meeting we decided to split up into groups, and take each article of the Code of Ethics and summarize what each mean to us as we conduct business everyday. Now you can always reference the full Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of Realtors® here, but here is the summary we came up with for you:
It is our primary job to represent the best interests of the party we represent, but it our responsibility to provide the best service while treating all parties involved honestly and fairly.
At Windermere we take pride in Real Estate as a career, and follow this Code of Ethics with the care. Because at the end of the day, helping everyone reach their goals while maintaining integrity is the best way to do business.
