REALTORS® Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Their Code of Ethics

On July 29, 1913, at the annual convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba, NAR’s board of directors got their first look at the much-anticipated Code and adopted it for use by the association’s members. 

The Code symbolizes REALTORS®' commitment to professionalism and vision of an honest real estate industry.

Learn more about the code's adoption in this blog post from NAR's Manager of the Archives and Virtual Library Frederik Heller.
