The National Association of REALTORS® was formed in 1908 and the Code of Ethics was adopted in 1913. The purpose of the Code was to establish a professional standard of conduct for real estate practitioners.
The REALTOR® Code of Ethics is based on the concepts of "service to the public," and a "commitment to professionalism." These central concepts of public protection are the foundations upon which the Articles of the Code stand.
