The term REALTOR® signifies competency, fairness, and integrity resulting from an adherence to an ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients can ever justify a departure from this ideal. These standards are set forth in the REALTOR® Code of Ethics (please click on the link provided to access the Code of Ethics). The Code of Ethics holds REALTORS® to an even higher standard than state license law.
The Grand Rapids Association of REALTORS® is respected nationwide for its efforts to 1) uphold the REALTOR® Code of Ethics and 2) resolve business disputes through its Professional Standards process.
