Why a REALTOR
Not all real estate licensees are created equally in Washington State. Only those who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) are able to call themselves a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® is held to a higher standard than a licensee, and a REALTOR® must abide by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics set forth by NAR.
By pledging to be a REALTOR, your real estate agent is promising to hold themselves accountable for their ethical behavior and business practices. That is why to use a REALTOR® .

Fair Housing Makes Us Stronger
Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity. Fair Housing Makes US Stronger.
An Overview of the Fair Housing Act
Join the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR)’s commemoration of the Fair Housing Act and learn about the law, how it makes our industry and country stronger, and the work that is still to be done. We ask all members of the REALTOR® family to join us in this commemoration and stand together with us in this commitment.
51st Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act
In 2018 the National Association of REALTORS® joined with its partners and allies in a year-long commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. The commemoration focused on three key elements of Fair Housing:
Acknowledging the organization’s past role in the fight for fair housing;
Understanding how we as a nation are constantly improving our commitment to fair housing; and
Embracing REALTORS®’ role at the forefront of advancing fair housing, leading efforts to address community fair housing issues.
