Ethics in Real Estate . . .
The guiding principle of ethics comes from the Latin primum non nocere, meaning first do no harm. By adhering to strict ethical guidelines I strive to earn your trust. In my experience, trust is a key factor in developing long term client relationships.
As your agent, I promise to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics in conducting any and all activities related to your sale or purchase. Federal and State laws, along with regulations from the California Bureau of Real Estate dictate how an agent does their job. In some businesses, simply doing what is legal may be good enough. But in my real estate practice I demand an ethical standard that goes above and beyond the legal requirements. Not every agent is a REALTOR. REALTORS are members of the National Association of REALTORS. Those of us who have chosen the REALTOR path are bound by the N.A.R Code of Ethics, which are rules pertaining to every aspect of if our business - Disclosure of agency, financial arrangements, following the law of the land, marketing practices, negotiation methods, how offers are presented, confidentiality, and more. All of these rules are intended to protect your interest. You can find the Realtor Code of Ethics online at:
