I recently showed a house to a client, and he expressed an interest in making an offer. Later, I showed the same property to another client, and she wants to make an offer. Have I violated the Code of Ethics?
There are a number of software tools that allow you upload a photograph of an empty room and then add computerized images of furnishings, fixtures, and even paint colors. But is this kind of marketing allowed under the Code of Ethics?
The Code of Ethics continues to be extremely relevant, despite constant changes in real estate business practices, market conditions, and technology. Here’s a brief summary of the updates made this year.
An acquaintance asked me discuss possibly taking on their listing. Would it be in violation of the Code of Ethics for me to follow through with this request without first getting permission from the broker who currently holds the listing? Or would this be OK because my acquaintance approached me about it?
About a week after I took on a new listing, I switched brokerages and had my license transferred. My client wants to follow me to my new broker. Can she ask my former broker to terminate the listing so she can relist with me at my new brokerage?
