The Code of Ethics outlines a REALTOR®’s obligations to clients, colleagues, and the general public. Anyone who believes a REALTOR® has violated the Code of Ethics may file a complaint.

Continuing Education for the Code of Ethics

New members must complete a Code of Ethics new-member orientation program within the first year of REALTOR® membership. Some local associations may require completion in a shorter time frame.

Established members must complete a Code of Ethics course once every two years. The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) Legal Update II Continuing Education (CE) course satisfies this requirement.
