Saint John Real Estate Board

REALTOR® Code

For over 50 years, CREA’s REALTOR® Code has been the measure of professionalism in organized real estate. The first code was approved in 1913; members approved the first code of ethics specific to CREA members in 1959. The Code has since been amended many times to reflect changes in the real estate marketplace, the needs of property owners, and the perceptions and values of society.

The REALTOR® Code establishes a standard of conduct, which in many respects exceeds basic legal requirements. This standard ensures the protection of the rights and interests of consumers of real estate services. As a condition of membership, all REALTORS® agree to abide by the Code.
