Pathways to Professionalism: Respect for Property

The following are some professional courtesies that every REALTOR should strive for. Using good manners is important in this business that is built on relationships. These 8 suggestions are all ways that show respect for property.

  1. Be responsible for everyone you allow to enter listed property.

  2. Never allow buyers to enter listed property unaccompanied.

  3. When showing property, keep all members of the group together.

  4. Never allow unaccompanied access to property without permission.

  5. Enter property only with permission even if you have a lockbox key or combination.

  6. When the occupant is absent, leave the property as you found it (lights, heating, cooling, drapes, etc). If you think something is amiss (e.g. vandalism) contact the listing broker immediately.

  7. Be considerate of the seller's property. Do not allow anyone to eat, drink, smoke, dispose of trash, use bathing or sleeping facilities, or bring pets. Leave the house as you found it unless instructed otherwise.

  8. Use sidewalks; if weather is bad, take off shoes and boots inside property.
