Realogy Named On ‘Most Ethical Companies’ List

February 13, 2018

For the seventh consecutive year, Realogy Holdings Corp. was recognized by the Ethisphere Institute—an organization that defines and measures corporate ethical standards—as part of its 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies list.

Realogy, which owns the franchise brands Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Century 21, Coldwell Banker, Coldwell Banker Commercial, Corcoran, ERA, Sotheby’s International Realty, as well as NRT, Cartus, Title Resource Group and ZapLabs, was one of 135 companies honored by Ethisphere this year. Companies are selected based on Ethisphere’s evaluation questionnaire in categories of corporate citizenship and responsibility; ethics and compliance program; corporate governance; leadership, innovation, and reputation; and culture of ethics. Evaluations are scored based on applicant’s answers, supplemental documentation, and independent research.

“Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition,” says Timothy Erblich, Ethisphere’s CEO. “This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice.”

Liz Gehringer, Realogy’s chief ethics and compliance officer, attributes the honor to the company’s employees and their passion for living out Realogy’s core values. “Our people commit themselves to excellence in their day-to-day work and extend themselves as leaders in the communities they serve and the real estate industry as a whole,” she said. “They are problem solvers, innovators, volunteers, and good neighbors, and we are proud to accept this recognition on their behalf.”

Realogy’s CEO and president, Ryan Schneider, says the honor reflects the company’s long-standing commitment to ethics. “Even more importantly, it acknowledges our team’s daily efforts to lead with integrity and excellence, focused on innovation, best-in-class agent services, and treating our partners, stakeholders, and each other with transparency and respect,” Schneider says.
