Coming Together

by Chuck Roper 11. November 2016 06:01

In the aftermath of this divisive election, I am heartened to hear politician’s new rhetoric of “coming together” and “finding common ground.”  I say, “Isn’t this what Realtors do every day?”  Look no further than how we Realtors find common ground every time we negotiate a sales contract; how we cooperate with our fellow Realtors for every showing, every feedback request and every agent open house.  Our Duty to Cooperate is spelled out in the Realtor Code of Ethics.   We don’t make false or misleading statements about other real estate professionals and we do not attempt to gain unfair advantage over competitors.  Along with honesty, competency and high integrity, cooperation lay at the heart of our industry.  The Code states: “cooperation promotes the best interests of those who utilize our services.”

If any person is having trouble coming together in this season of change, look no further than the 1.2 million Realtors in the United States, where cooperation is our middle name.
