The California Association of REALTORS® is set to dramatically expand the publication of information about its members found in violation of the National Association of REALTORS®’ Code of Ethics. The NAR Board of Directors approved in May a five-year pilot program that includes publishing names and photos of the members and a summary of the violations on a website accessible only to association members. The statewide database is expected to be up and running in August.
