Peer to Peer

C.A.R. now offers our REALTOR® members a free ethics infoline where they can be assigned a volunteer member who is trained in the Code of Ethics to assist them with their non-legal ethics questions.  

Members can ask questions about:

  • whether their own actions might violate the Code of Ethics
  • whether the actions of another REALTOR® member might violate the Code of Ethics

The Infoline volunteer is NOT an attorney and CANNOT give legal advice or answer legal questions! Additionally, the Peer-to-Peer Ethics Infoline is only available for members who are NOT currently involved in an ethics case at a local association OR members who are not a plaintiff or defendant in related, pending litigation. 

The Peer-to-Peer Ethics volunteer will not provide answers or opinions in writing. All information will be provided orally. Local association grievance committees and ethics hearing panels are not bound by the opinions provided by Peer-to-Peer Ethics volunteers.
