Ethics & Standards
The RLI leadership is in the process of developing an RLI Code of Ethics. A code of ethics enhances confidence in an organization
and in professionals showing a commitment to high standards and values in the course of conducting work.
Effective January 2010

competence which are reasonably expected in the specific real estate disciplines in which they engage; specifically, residential real
estate brokerage, real property management, commercial and industrial real estate brokerage, land brokerage, real estate appraisal,
real estate counseling, real estate syndication, real estate auction, and international real estate.
