In 1893, our Association began with 100 members, which served a city of 85,000 people. The foundation from which we built our Association was solid, and as a result, we are over 2,000 members strong today, serving more than half a million people in metropolitan Grand Rapids.
For over a century, the Association has addressed questions of millage, public housing, zoning, planning, and bond issues. In every case, the basic consideration was the protection of property rights and values. These considerations were evident during the years around 1965 when property rights and human rights seemed to come into conflict. It was 1965 when the Association adopted a position that established the right of a free housing market without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age, and sex. Later, in 1988, the Association further adopted handicap and familial status as protected classes. This landmark position of the Association was considered a forerunner in establishing equal rights policies, and Boards all across the country adopted these policies.
Over 100 years have passed, and our city and membership have grown. As times change, the foundation of our Association remains the same: its members. Association members are committed to enriching the livelihood of our city by promoting the free enterprise system and private ownership of property. Association members also adhere to the Code of Ethics and practice the professional standards. These people are the foundation of the Grand Rapids Association of REALTORS®.
SAN FRANCISCO (November 7, 2013) – This year the National Association of Realtors® celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Realtors® Code of Ethics. The code spells out the professional responsibilities and expectations of NAR’s 1 million Realtor® members to their clients, customers, fellow Realtors® and the general public.
“As the leading advocate for homeowners and real estate investors, Realtors® have been subscribing to NAR’s strict Code of Ethics as a condition of membership for more than 100 years; the Code separates them from other real estate licensees,” said NAR President Gary Thomas, broker-owner of Evergreen Realty, in Villa Park, Calif. “Protecting the interests of consumers demands high standards of professional conduct and training, and the Code of Ethics is the golden thread that binds the Realtor® community together.”
This centennial milestone is central to the value that Realtors® have been bringing to home buyers, sellers and investors as they achieve their real estate goals. In 1908, the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges was founded in an effort to standardize real estate practices; the entity later became the National Association of Realtors®. The organization’s original goals were to establish ethical standards, allow for the exchange of real estate information and statistics, and to develop sound public policies on real estate matters. On July 29, 1913, the revolutionary Realtor® Code of Ethics was adopted.
All Realtors® must take comprehensive training on the Code of Ethics, which has been amended 37 times and is considered a living document that protects sellers, buyers, landlords, tenants and others who place their trust in Realtors®.
Not all real estate licensees are Realtors®. There are currently more than 1.84 million active licensed real estate professionals in the U.S.; 1 million are members of NAR and can call themselves Realtors®. NAR membership separates Realtors® from real estate agents who do not subscribe to a code of ethics or have access to the educational, business and market information advantages of their Realtor® counterparts.
“Buying a home is often one of the largest and most important decisions in a consumer’s life, and having a Realtor® on their side can help home buyers and sellers stay focused on the emotional and financial issues that are most important,” said Thomas. “Through the Code of Ethics, Realtors® are providing consumers with a promise to protect and promote their best interests throughout the entire home buying, selling or investing process.”
