The National Association of REALTORS® formed in 1908, then known as the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges.
Prior to its inception, the real estate industry did not enjoy a positive reputation. Real estate brokers made their profit the same way stockbrokers did—by buying low and selling high. Virtually no states had license laws or requirements for the people who sold real estate. In 1913, the organization wrote and implemented its first Code of Ethics. It has been described as a “vision” for real estate professionals as it became the basis for many real estate license laws. This course addresses the specifics of the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics and ethical practices and decision-making for real estate professionals. Additionally, this course may potentially be approvable for REALTORS® who wish to fulfill the biennial Code of Ethics requirement from the  National Association of REALTORS®.

Fair and equitable treatment in housing and real estate transactions is a right by law. In this course, we focus on the mandatory fair housing issues real estate licensees must understand. The United States Congress and the New York State legislature have made it clear that ensuring equal access to housing is an important goal for our society. Real estate professionals need to know what conduct violates anti-discrimination laws to avoid potential liability. Here you will learn about federal, state, and local anti-discrimination laws, problems that can occur from fair housing violations, and your duties and responsibilities to treat all clients fairly and equally under the law.
