It is the Code of Ethics that separates REALTORS from other licensees and we take enforcement of the Code very seriously. Ethics complaints may be filed by REALTORS or members of the public. Ethics complaints serve to educate members as well as provide a disciplinary process when violations have occurred. Any person having reason to believe that a member is guilty of any unethical conduct subject to disciplinary action may file a complaint in writing with the Local Board/Association of REALTORS that the member holds membership in.
