While the Rules and Regulations and the Code of Ethics establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, in any instance where Rules and Regulations and the Code of Ethics and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence.

Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depends the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilizations. PREBA members should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.

Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which PREBA members should dedicate themselves, and for which they should be diligent in preparing themselves. PREBA members, therefore, are enthusiastic to maintain and improve the standards of their calling and share with their fellow PREBA members a common responsibility for its integrity and honor.

In recognition and appreciation of their obligations to clients, customers, the public, and each other, PREBA members continuously strive to become and remain informed on issues affecting real estate and, as knowledgeable professionals, they willingly share the fruit of their experience and study with others. They identify and take steps, through enforcement of these rules and regulations and by assisting appropriate regulatory bodies, to eliminate practices which may damage the public or which might discredit or bring dishonor to the real estate profession.

PREBA members having direct personal knowledge of conduct that may violate the PREBA Rules and Regulations or the PREBA Code of Ethics involving misappropriation of client or customer funds or property, willful discrimination, or fraud resulting in substantial economic harm, bring such matters to the attention of the appropriate Professional Standards Committee or PREBA body. (Adopted 9/06)

Realizing that cooperation with other real estate professionals promotes the best interests of those who utilize their services, PREBA members urge exclusive representation of clients; do not attempt to gain any unfair advantage over their competitors; and they refrain from making unsolicited comments about other practitioners. In instances where their opinion is sought, or where PREBA members believe that comment is necessary, their opinion is offered in an objective, professional manner, uninfluenced by any personal motivation or potential advantage or gain.

To be identified as a PREBA member has come to indicate competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever can justify departure from this ideal.

In the interpretation of this obligation, PREBA members can take no safer guide than that which has been handed down through the centuries, embodied in the Golden Rule, “Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them.”

Accepting this standard as their own, PREBA members pledge to observe its spirit in all of their activities and to conduct their business in accordance with the tenets set forth below.
