3 Hour Real Estate Code of Ethics Syllabus

HD Video Course – Instructor: Gwyn Besner

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.

3 Hour Fair Housing Course Description

Fully Narrated Course – Instructor:  Jenny MacDowell

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.

Environmental Issues Course Description

HD Video Course -Instructor: Gwyn Besner

Human activity has been impacting the environment for thousands of years. Industrial, chemical, and energy-related waste materials have had an exponential effect on the environment. It has only been in the last 50 years or so that environmental laws have been enacted to protect public health, safety, and welfare, as well as preserving natural resources. These and other issues have made environmental law more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation, as opposing groups seek to contain and re-mediate costs associated with contaminated sites and similar issues.
