Description

The purpose of this course is to provide guidance and discussion of the ethical requirements and concerns affecting Texas Real Estate Agents. First, the five canons of professional ethics and conduct are identified and discussed. Because agency relationships are critical to real estate transactions, this relationship is explored. Another relationship that is explored involves connections between parties in real estate transactions, including intermediary brokerage relationships and subagency. The relationship between a real estate agent and a client is a fiduciary one, requiring each agent to put clients' interests first and adhere to the particular standards and ethics required by law. The varied responsibilities and duties of the real estate agent to different parties may often lead to conflicts of interest. Real estate agents must be aware of these potential conflicts and must also of how to prevent and deal with them.

SAE courses can be completed in as little as 9 days (see TREC 3 day rule)

Additionally, you may request a criminal history evaluation before enrolling in courses or applying for a real estate license, as set out in Texas Occupations Code §53.025 and TREC Rule 541.1. If you have any criminal offenses, unpaid judgments, had disciplinary action taken against a professional or occupational license, or have performed an unlicensed activity, TREC requires you to consider submitting a completed Moral Character Determination Form before applying for a license.
