COVID-19 Resources and updates
We are REALTORS, we live by the Code...
The Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS® is a document which is universally recognized by lawyers and laymen as the measure of professionalism in the real estate industry. It does not describe the lowest common denominator of permissible behavior as do the licensing laws of the state. Instead, it outlines the highest ideals of professional performance the public, and other REALTORS®, have a right to expect from REALTORS®.
A Message from your Association President
In response to the growing concerns about COVID-19, aka Coronavirus:
As you are all aware our local Schools have closed, and we have had 1 positive case here in LaPorte County, we are doing our best in following all updates from the CDC, WHO, and our own NAR. NAR has provided us a website for guidance on how to respond to the coronavirus's potential impact on the real estate industry. www.nar.realtor/coronavirus
During these next few weeks the board office will be open but only via phone or email!. We will all do our best to stay calm and follow any advice from our relevant Health officials. Everyone, please stay safe and healthy!
Brad Anderson, 2020 Board President
