The Great Bend Board of Realtors is a not-for-profit organization representing more than 50 local Realtor members in the Great Bend area. Each member is also a member of the Kansas Association and National Association of Realtors.
This year the National Association of Realtors celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Realtors Code of Ethics. The code spells out the professional responsibilities and expectations of NAR’s 1 million Realtor members to their clients, customers, fellow Realtors and the general public.
“As the leading advocate for homeowners and real estate investors, Realtors have been subscribing to NAR’s strict Code of Ethics as a condition of membership for more than 100 years; the Code separates them from other real estate licensees,” Sateren said. “Protecting the interests of consumers demands high standards of professional conduct and training, and the Code of Ethics is the golden thread that binds the Realtor community together.
“Buying a home is often one of the largest and most important decisions in a consumer’s life, and having a Realtor on their side can help home buyers and sellers stay focused on the emotional and financial issues that are most important,” said Sateren. “Through the Code of Ethics, Realtors are providing consumers with a promise to protect and promote their best interests throughout the entire home buying, selling or investing process.”
The National Association of Realtors, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
