Code of Ethics

The Realtor Code of Ethics was established over 100 years ago to unite the real estate profession. The Code establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law. All REALTORS® are real estate agents but not all real estate agents are REALTORS®. One becomes a REALTOR® upon joining the National Association of REALTORS® and committing to abide by the code.

The REALTOR® Code of Ethics is a key factor separating REALTORS® from other real estate practitioners as they hold the REALTOR® to a higher level of professionalism in the industry.

All Lebanon board members are REALTORS® and Ethics training is a requirement. There is New Member Orientation Program and Quadrennial REALTOR® Ethics Training. Failure to complete the course can result in loss of local, state and national membership.

Each course meets the specific criteria and learning objectives required for either new REALTORS® or existing REALTORS® as established in the Statements of Professional Standards Policy found in the NAR Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual found below.
