A solid ethical foundation is an essential part of any good business practice. In Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Statutes and the Wisconsin Administrative Code outline the regulations designed to ensure that your clients and customers are always treated respectfully, fairly, and honestly.

To further ensure professionalism and high-quality service, the National Association of REALTORS® asks its members to follow its Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Updated regularly, this Code was first adopted in 1913 and consists of 17 Articles along with supporting Standards of Practice.

The Ethics and Fair Housing in Wisconsin course reviews all parts of the Code, looks at real-life examples relating to various Articles, examines the benefits of mediation over arbitration, and reviews key New Hampshire laws that govern ethical business practices in your state.

Course highlights include:

  • A review of pertinent chapters from the Wisconsin Statutes and Wisconsin Administrative Code
  • A detailed look at recent revisions and additions to the NAR Code of Ethics
  • A look at federal and state fair housing guidelines
  • Tips for applying the Code’s principles and guidelines to your practice
  • A discussion on the benefits of mediation
  • A review of the complaint process at the Department of Safety and Professional Services
  • Activities and examples to illustrate the practical application of the new information and frame it in everyday context
