REALTOR® Code of Ethics
Members of the Sussex County Association of REALTORS® follow the same code of ethics their counterparts across the country do ― and they take that code extremely seriously.
Members have to abide by high principles; a condition to membership in SCAOR® is a successful completion of the National Association of REALTORS® course on ethics. This gives clients an extra piece of mind that the REALTOR® they’re working with is going to do an ethical and fair job for them.
REALTORS® in the United States are required to identify and take steps, through enforcement of the Code of Ethics, to eliminate practices that may damage the public or might bring discredit or dishonor to the real estate profession.
There are 17 articles of the REALTORS® Code of Ethics, which all include multiple standards of practice requirements. The Code is taken very seriously by SCAOR® and by our state and national REALTOR® associations – if you don’t agree to adhere to the Code of Ethics, you cannot be a member of the Sussex County Association of REALTORS®.
