When you became a REALTOR®, you made a promise to uphold a strict code of ethics – to treat all clients equally, regardless of their race, colour, sex, religion, familial status, handicap, sexual orientation, national origin or gender identity. In order to help you further drive change and promote inclusiveness within your business, we’ve collected the following resources from real estate organizations committed to diversity and equality.
