CE – Webinar: Code of Ethics and Fair Housing: A Powerhouse Couple
This will satisfy the NAR Code of Ethics requirement.
The powerhouse couple of Ethics and Fair Housing come together in this information packed course. This session is designed to meet the REALTOR® Code of Ethics’ mandate though a lively review and discussion of ethical dilemmas, arbitration and mediation dispute resolution methods, and the latest in changes to the Code. Through the lens of situations and processes REALTORS® experience every day, we’ll also review fair housing law, HUD guidelines with respect to advertising compliancy, and identify best professionalism practices in the industry. As a bonus, we’ll even discuss proactive safety practices licensees should take when engaging with any consumer or client.
