Ethics & Professional Standards
The National Association of REALTORS® adopted its Code of Ethics in 1913. Since then, REALTORS® everywhere have pledged to meet the Code’s high professional standards upon becoming members of the Association. The professional standards process plays a very important role in our local association. It helps ensure honorable, faithful and competent service to our members, their clients, customers and other members of the public through the enforcement and disciplinary procedures that accompany the Code.
HRRA offers a Dispute Resolution System (DRS). Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party, called a Mediator, acts to encourage and to assist in the resolution of a dispute between two or more parties and is an entirely non-adversarial process.
