As a Lake Oswego Real Estate Broker, I am also a REALTOR®.  REALTORS® subscribe to the Code Of Ethics which is a barometer and guide. It consists of articles of behavior that we who belong to the NAR® (National Association of REALTORS®) must adhere to. Not all agents here locally or throughout the U.S. are REALTORS®.

Real Estate Code Of Ethics

What actually is in the Code of Ethics?  Have you ever read the articles that are in the Code of Ethics that relate to you as a consumer?  In 2013, the Code of Ethics turned 100 years old and is a part of being a REALTOR®.

I thought I would post a copy of those articles here for you to read.

REALTORS® Code of Ethics

In the many Facebook groups I belong to, because of the “hot” and highly competitive real estate market due to such low inventory of houses for sale here in Lake Oswego, in the Portland metro area and all across the U.S., as in other industries there seems to be relatively few “bad apples” in our business too.

Many of our local agents are posting some of that happening here locally.  We as real estate agents are self governing and need to report to our respective real estate organizations when there is any unethical behavior. Unfortunately, most consumers don’t even realize when an agent has perhaps been in violation of our Code of Ethics. Fortunately,  99.999% of all real estate agents in our Portland metro market adhere to the Code of Ethics.

Hiring A Real Estate Agent

When hiring a real estate agent, ask them if they are a REALTOR®. In fact, ask them to show you their REALTOR® identification and don’t just take their word for it.  Because some real estate agents may use that name loosely and not be a REALTOR® at all. If you are wanting to hire a real estate agent who is highly ethical, give me a call. I am always trying to improve my service to my clients as well.
