Ethics & Professional Conduct

In daily real estate practice, agents are required to make decisions that involve ethical reasoning. This course explores the ethical issues surrounding real estate transactions. State law, moral values and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Code of Ethics will be discussed.

THE LAW, ETHICS, AND YOU: Who are the victims? Who are the enforcers? Both the Tennessee Real Estate Commission and The REALTORS®' Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice are complaint driven. The Tennessee

Real Estate Commission does have the power upon its own motion to take action, but generally act only on a verified complaint. Therefore, if nobody signs a complaint, nobody gets punished. It is as simple as that: No action, no reaction, and no punishment for that wrong doer that cause you grief or acted unethical.

So, how do you call the Real Estate Police? The answer is, you don't! Why? Because you are the real estate police. This course will discuss your moral and legal obligations to the State of Tennessee, and the Association of Realtors® if you are a member.

While the REALTORS® Code of Ethics establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, in any instance where the Code of Ethics and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence.

This course meets the learning objectives and minimum criteria established by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® for the required quadrennial ethics training to maintain your membership in the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.
