NAR Clarifies New Code of Ethics Rule During Webinar
By Kerry Smith
In the first of six training webinars, NAR speakers answered questions about a new Code of Ethics Rule, effective Nov. 13, that bans “harassing speech, hate speech, epithets or slurs” against protected classes. Must a Realtor, for example, no longer oppose same-sex marriages?
ORLANDO, Fla. – The board of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) approved a new Code of Ethics (COE) policy on Nov. 13 that immediately went into effect. The policy sparked a spirited discussion among NAR committees and the board itself, and that discussion continues among members.
