Board successfully meets Core Standards Requirements
The Rhode Island Commercial and Appraisal Board of REALTORS® successfully completed its annual Core Standards application with the National Association of REALTORS® this past June. All REALTOR® Boards across the country must complete this process to continue as a chartered member of the NAR, to raise the bar for REALTOR® Associations and ensure high-quality service for their members. The application challenged the Rhode Island Commercial and Appraisal Board of REALTORS® to demonstrate proficiency in the areas of:
1. Code of Ethics
3. Consumer Outreach
4. Unification Efforts and Support of the REALTOR® Organization
6. Financial Solvency
The Board is now in its 9th year of sharing services with the Greater Providence Board of REALTORS®. This has allowed us to expand services and streamline management through this strategic partnership. The collaboration allows us to operate more efficiently and to keep pace with the ever-increasing expectations and demands on our Board and its management.
