Professional Conduct

Always...

  • Obey all applicable federal, state and municipal laws;
  • Be courteous, ethical and thoroughly professional in all business dealings;
  • Be aware and respectful of the community’s environmental concerns;
  • Strive to serve your clients’ best interests by keeping your personal money distinct from business funds, including funds received in trust for others (i.e. client escrow money);
  • Negotiate with the property’s exclusive agent and strictly observe the terms set by that agent.
Never...
  • Make false or misleading statements about competitors, their businesses or business practices;
  • Disclose confidential information about a client to a third party without the client’s informed consent, or use such information for personal advantage;
  • Accept compensation for a transaction from more than one party without disclosing the payment to all involved parties and obtaining consent of the agent’s client;
  • Discriminate against or deny equal professional services to any person for reasons of race, color, religion, sex, sexual preferences, handicap, familial status or national origin, nor be a party to such discrimination;
  • Engage in activities that constitute the practice of law unless you are also a licensed member of the bar;
  • Falsely claim to be an exclusive agent.
