How to File an Ethics Complaint
If a REALTOR® is representing you as a buyer or a seller, you can count on that REALTOR® to:
- REALTORS® are required to be honest with all parties involved in a transaction, including clients and other real estate practitioners.
- They must prioritize their client’s interests above their own, irrespective of compensation, and provide thorough research and information to help clients make informed decisions.
- All pertinent facts about the property and transaction must be disclosed to both buyers and sellers and if information provided by a seller is questionable, REALTORS® must investigate further.
- They should recommend that buyers seek advice from experts, like home inspectors, to address concerns and cannot comply if a seller asks them to withhold critical information about the property.
- REALTORS® must be truthful in all communications with the public, avoiding misrepresentation and ensuring clarity about their involvement in past transactions.
