Reference the following resources in your new member orientation:
As one of the strongest and most recognized brands in the world, be sure to communicate to new members the importance of the REALTOR® brand and how to use it properly to ensure maximum value with the public. It is a key differentiator since only members are authorized to use the term “REALTOR®” or the REALTOR® logo in connection with their real estate business. To protect it, we need to ensure that “REALTOR®” continues to mean a member of NAR and not just any real estate agent. To easily communicate this issue, the 3-minute Make Our Marks Remarkable video and the On Your Mark brochure (Item #126-181) is available for purchase at the REALTOR® Store.
Code of Ethics Training and Orientation
All REALTOR® Associations are required to offer 2.5 hours of Code of Ethics training for applicants and existing REALTOR® members. At orientation, individuals will review the Code, training requirements and set expectations. Plus, materials are available for purchase to help communicate the value of this training to your membership. Two online ethics training courses make completion easy by offering CE credit in several states or a customizable, interactive, non-CE training option. You can also purchase physical copies of all of the latest code of ethics items for your members or download all of the items for free from the REALTOR® Store, here.
