realtor code of ethics: You've just been promoted to the CEO of NAR! Now what? - 06/10/18 05:22 PM
Okay, so it's been absolutely AGES since I've participated in any contests here on AR. But because I have a longstanding love & respect for Debe Maxwell, CRS, and the fact that I've been an NAR member for the past 20 years, I thought I would chime in.
If nothing else, the recent 'Logo-Gate' revealed a serious disconnect between NAR leadership and what appears to be the majority (or at least, rather vocal) rank & file within our association.

realtor code of ethics: Realtor® Code of Ethics vs. Facebook TOS - 11/28/15 04:22 AM

realtor code of ethics: What's the Cost of Your Integrity? - 05/10/09 01:05 PM
There is a Bible story in the Old Testament that never fails to amaze me, no matter how many times I read it.It's the account of Esau selling his birthright to his brother Jacob for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:19-34).To understand the full weight of this story, you really need to understand the extreme value and importance the Jewish people ascribed to the firstborn son. It was a position of great privilege, prestige, and status. It afforded a double portion of the Father's inheritance. And, prior to the Levitical Era, assigned the responsibility of family Priesthood.And so it is with … (89 comments)
