Not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®. The term “REALTOR®” is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics, which in many cases goes beyond state law.
All REALTORS® are required to adhere to the Code of Ethics. This requirement enables buyers and sellers to expect fair, honest and ethical treatment during all aspects of the transaction, from the very beginning of a potential home sale until long after the close of escrow. This obligation helps ensure high standards of professional conduct in order to serve the interests of their clients and customers.
The Glendale Association of REALTORS® is responsible for enforcing the Code of Ethics pursuant to the Bylaws of the National Association. Whether you yourself are a REALTOR®, broker, or are a member of the public, you have the opportunity to address potential disputes that may arise at some point over the course of a sales transaction.
Please read through the information linked on this page and elsewhere on this website for an understanding of the Ethics and Professional Standards program at GAOR. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Linda Conaway at (800)446-3646.
