REALTOR® Code of Ethics

Moral Integrity. Competency. Dedication.

A REALTOR®’s ethical obligations must be based in these core values. The REALTOR® Code sets the standards high when it comes to professional conduct, which helps protect Canadians’ rights and interests.

The first Code was approved in 1913 and has been amended many times to reflect changes in the real estate marketplace, the needs of property owners, and society’s perceptions and values.

The REALTOR® Code establishes a standard of conduct, which in many respects exceeds basic legal requirements. This standard ensures the protection of the rights and interests of consumers of real estate services. As a condition of membership, all REALTORS® agree to abide by the Code and violations may lead to serious consequences.

In New Brunswick, it is the responsibility of the New Brunswick Real Estate Association (NBREA) to ensure that those registered to trade in real estate in our province uphold the Code. The Disciplinary Process is administered through NBREA’s Office of the Registrar.
