What is the “Code Kiosk?”

The Code Kiosk was created by the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® (GAAR) to celebrate the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Code of Ethics Centennial, which took place in 2013. It is intended to be a permanent resource for REALTORS®, their clients, and anyone else who is interested in learning the value of The REALTOR® Code of Ethics. This site is not officially affiliated with NAR.
