Respect for Peers

Identify your REALTOR® and professional status in all contacts with other REALTORS®.

Respond to other agents’ calls, faxes, and e-mails promptly and courteously.

Notify the listing broker if there appears to be inaccurate information on the listing.

Share important information about a property, including the presence of pets; security systems; and whether sellers will be present during the showing.

Show courtesy, trust and respect to other real estate professionals.

Avoid the inappropriate use of endearments or other denigrating language.

Do not prospect at other REALTORS®’ open houses or similar events.

Return keys promptly or carefully replace keys in the lockbox after showings.

To be successful in the business, mutual respect is essential.

Real estate is a reputation business. What you do today may affect your reputation – and business – for years to come.
