Code of Ethics


Code of Ethics

REBNY's members, and those affiliated with them, honor the Board's Code of Ethics. The Code, which applies to all Board members, clarifies licensees' responsibilities to their colleagues and the public.

If an alleged Code violation involves an issue over money, the matter can be handled by voluntary mediation or binding arbitration. Non-monetary disputes are resolved by the Ethics Committees or subcommittees of the Residential Brokerage and Commercial Brokerage Divisions.

 For members of REBNY’s Residential Brokerage Division, the RLS Universal Co-brokerage Agreement Rules and Regulations supplement the Code of Ethics.

Through members’ adherence to the Code and additional rules and regulations, where appropriate, REBNY provides fair treatment for all licensees participating in a transaction and protects the interests of buyers and sellers.
