Can You Prove You Presented That Offer?

Article 1 is the single most often cited article from NAR's Code of Ethics in ethics complaints filed with your local REALTOR® association. It clearly lays out the REALTOR'S® pledge to protect and promote the interests of their client as well as their obligation to treat all parties honestly.  The Code of Ethics goes on to say that offers and counter-offers must be presented objectively and as quickly as possible, and that the listing REALTOR® must continue to present offers and counter-offers until closing unless the seller has waived this obligation in writing.
