3 Hour Course
Course ID: DEE 2854
Approved By: South Carolina Real Estate Commission
We'll begin this class by talking about the differences between ethics and morals, as well as the difference between ethics in one's personal life, versus in business. We'll utilize examples of scenarios that one may encounter in their work, to demonstrate the difference between good intentions, moral beliefs, and ethical behavior.
Once we have a solid understanding of what ethics are, we'll move on to the NAR Code of Ethics, where we'll review the preamble and the first two articles of the Code, analyzing the meaning and application of the guidelines within the Code.
Each of these articles will be followed by case studies, to provide practice putting the ethical principles learned in the course into practice with customers and clients. Some of the most important topics we'll cover include ethical considerations regarding:
Disclosure of defects
Occurrence of errors
Loyalty to the client
Duty of honesty
Conflicts of net listings
This ethics course will help prepare real estate professionals in South Carolina for the ethical challenges that may be encountered in the industry, and provide the tools needed to handle these challenges correctly.
