Class Description

Instructor: Jason Vaughn
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the ethical responsibilities governing the practice of real estate while comparing and contrasting how this fits inside the license law framework. Also reviewed are examples of potential ethical and license law violations and how they should be handled by a real estate licensee. If a complaint is filed due to a potential violation, the material explains what the process entails and what the expectations are for the licensee. Throughout the course, students will be given tips on fiduciary duties, disclosure, confidentiality and other responsibilities that fall in the lap of a real estate practitioner.

*This course satisfies NAR's ethics requirement for the 2017-2018 cycle. Cycles now are two years in duration starting January 1, 2017 and ending on December 31, 2018. Upon completion of this course, students will need to provide a copy of their certificate to their primary local association to be recorded in NRDS.
