It seems that every day there are TV reports and newspaper articles uncovering unethical and illegal dealings by a person in a position of trust. Even though the vast majority of Real Estate agents do the right thing on a daily basis, it’s that small percentage of agents that make the headlines.
Sometimes the unethical agent has done something ON PURPOSE but many times it was just as simple as not knowing it was unethical. However, as the saying goes, “Ignorance is no excuse.”
For Real Estate Agents, FAIR HOUSING is at the heart of the industry. Because many groups or classes of people have been discriminated against for many years, the Federal Government has enacted many laws to help eliminate discrimination.
This course is designed not to scare anyone but rather to highlight many of the unethical things that have happened and how the agent should avoid anything that even seems like it might be unethical or unfair. Should a client or customer ask you to do something unethical…. Well, sometimes you just have to say no to them!
This course is structured to deliver three hours of Fair Housing.
