Board of Directors Extends Code of Ethics Application

The NAR Board of Directors recently approved a series of recommendations from NAR’s Professional Standards Committee that extends the application of Article 10 of the Code of Ethics to discriminatory speech and conduct outside of members’ real estate practices.

The changes go into effect immediately but do not retroactively apply to members’ past activities or actions. REALTORS® who make discriminatory remarks, on their business or personal social media accounts, can be subject to disciplinary action.
