Real Estate Ethics (Pt. 2): Caroline Boland
Show Notes

Real estate broker and educator Caroline Boland joins us again for a deeper dive into the NAR Code of Ethics. 

On this episode, she delves into Article 1 of the code, which states that Realtors must be honest and fair in dealing with clients and all parties involved in a transaction. She also discusses Article 4, which is related to Realtors' disclosure of any personal interest they have in a sale. 

And what about disclosure of so-called distressed properties, where there was a recent homicide, for example? In Florida, Caroline says, there is no legal requirement to disclose that information.  But is it ethical to withhold it? She also touches on the Code of Ethics language related to making or sharing false or misleading statements about other Realtors.
