Constance Kramer you really need to ask the people whom you are paying to take the course as to why they don't teach you instead of passing their job off to us . As a Realtor you will be taking CE courses every year. If I took a CE course and they told me to get my answers off the Internet I'd tell them to get their paycheck off the internet and then I'd find a competent company to purchase my education from.

Like any club you need to know the rules otherwise you may get fined. The REALTOR Code of Ethics are club rules. It's important to know the rules.

However, do not confuse a code of moral conduct with the club rules.

Okay Constance, take this back to your professor.

The Code of Ethics is important because it is evidence that the real estate industry wants to police itself and set up an mechanism to punish bad actors.  This way we can keep the government from over regulating the industry.  We can show that we can handle things in-house, so to speak.

Good luck on your test.
