Code of Ethics


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Realtors should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.

Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which Realtors should dedicate themselves, and for which they should be diligent in preparing themselves. Realtors, therefore, are zealous to maintain and improve the standards of their calling and share with their fellow Realtors a common responsibility for its integrity and honor.

This course outlines the standards of practice expected of licensed realtors, and provides several case studies to illustrate those standards.

Fair Housing


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

It is important to realize Fair Housing laws are very much a part of today’s real estate market. Both Federal and State governments employ “testers” to police the industry. Testing is not considered entrapment and the results are admissible in court. Fair Housing is the law of the land, and even in the face of some apparent exceptions, there is no room for discrimination of any sort in the business of housing.

The Fair Housing Act has its roots in the civil rights movement and is arguably the final great legislative achievement of the times. It is a landmark civil rights act that pushed back decades of discrimination.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Understand the history behind and the connection between civil rights legislation and the Fair Housing Act.
  • Recognize and apply the standards outlined by court decisions in Fair Housing case law.
  • Be able to integrate the rules and regulations pertaining to Fair Housing laws in the real estate industry.

COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

This course brings together many of the most important aspects of a real estate broker business.

Your manual should encompass all of the basics: a mission statement, personnel policies, and general procedures such as office attire, sales meetings, office conduct, terminations, and vacations. It is also important to include policies and procedures specific to real estate.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

Risk Management


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Risk is the potential, or possibility that something bad or unpleasant, such as an injury or loss, will happen. The various risks we face are fines and penalties for violating the law, either intentionally or accidentally; loss of money due to damages awarded in a lawsuit; or even loss of our ability to make a living in our chosen profession. This also includes injuries to ourselves or others. Since some risk is inevitable in the marketplace, it is important to carry insurance to protect against inadvertent exposure to risk. Risk management allows you to assess, identify and then determine what kind of agreements, insurance or policies will best protect your business.
