“Under all is the land.
Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depend the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilization. REALTORS® should recognize that the interest of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.” So begins the preamble to the Code of Ethics of the National Association of Realtors.
 
Building responsibly involves not only smart design and appropriate materials, it requires a thoughtful and sensitive approach to the site and to our limited land, air and water resources.
