advise on matters outside the scope of their real estate license, or to
disclose facts which are confidential under the scope of agency or
non-agency relationships as defined by state law.

factors reasonably apparent to someone with expertise in those areas
required by their real estate licensing authority. Article 2 does not
impose upon the REALTOR® the obligation of expertise in other
professional or technical disciplines.
