Ombudsman Program

If you are in a dispute with a member, but do not want to file an official complaint, you may call our office to determine if your issue may be resolved through the use of our Ombudsman Program. This program is designed to have an experienced member contact both parties and attempt to settle the matter in a timely way. If no agreement is reached, the complainant may then file a formal Ethics complaint.

The Ombudsman’s role is primarily one of communication and conciliation, not adjudication, Ombudsmen do not determine whether ethics violations have occurred, rather they anticipate, identify, and resolve misunderstandings and disagreements before matters ripen into disputes and possible charges of unethical conduct. 

Mediation

As an alternative to arbitration, the Association has available mediation. Mediation is a dispute resolution process whereby a mediator works with you and the other parties to facilitate a mutually acceptable resolution of your dispute. In comparison to arbitration, mediation is usually less adversarial and less formal and the parties are more directly involved in the decision making process to resolve their dispute. As a general policy, the Association promotes mediation and strongly encourages you to consider using mediation.

While the Association promotes mediation, please be advised of the following. If you are the complainant in the dispute, you still need to file an arbitration complaint with the Association to preserve your right to arbitration. Also, mediation is a voluntary process and a mediation conference can only be scheduled for those parties that agree to mediation. If any party to your dispute does not agree to mediation, arbitration will be necessary to resolve the dispute as it pertains to you and those parties. Finally, if you are unable to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of the dispute through mediation, an arbitration hearing will have to be scheduled.

The mediation request from should be forwarded to:

Email veronica@hdaor.com or diane@hdaor.com

Disciplinary Information

Please Read: Before you File an Ethics Complaint

Even with the best of intentions, planning and preparation, occasional disagreements arise between agents and their clients or customers. If a monetary dispute arises from a real estate transaction or if you believe an agent mayimages have acted in an unethical manner, contact HDAOR.

Complaints that are brought before the Association give those parties involved an opportunity to be educated about the REALTOR® Code of Ethics (and/or the Multiple Listing Service’s Rules and Regulations. In addition, REALTORS® are judged by their peers as opposed to other individuals, who may be far less familiar with the practices and customs of the real estate industry.

What is it?

A disciplinary alleges that a REALTOR® has violated an Article(s) of the Code of Ethics or an MLS participant or subscriber has violated the Multiple Listing Service Rules and Regulations.

Who can file a disciplinary complaint?

Any person, whether a member or not, having reason to believe that an HDAOR REALTOR® member or MLS participant or subscriber is in violation of any conduct subject to disciplinary action.

 

Please feel free to contact a Staff Member at 760.244.8841 to determine which package is applicable to your case.

Print All Documents under your applicable Catagory, fill them out & then email them to Veronica@hdaor.com or Diane@hdaor.com.

Arbitration

Ethics Complaints, Arbitration Requests and Related Information

REALTORS® are different from non-member licensees in that they voluntarily subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics. If you believe that a REALTOR® has violated one or more Articles of the Code of Ethics, you can file an ethics complaint alleging a violation(s) through the local association of REALTORS® where the REALTOR® holds membership, or participates in a REALTOR® association-owned/operated MLS. You may search for a member’s local affiliation here.

In addition, REALTORS® agree as a condition of membership to arbitrate contractual disputes and specific non-contractual disputes as provided for in Article 17 of the NAR Code of Ethics.

Below are several resources to help you understand what filing and processing an ethics complaint and arbitration request entails, and the general process you can expect when filing an ethics complaint or arbitration request with a local association of REALTORS®. Check with the local association of REALTORS® to ensure you have the proper forms required by that association. Click Here for more information.

What is Arbitration?

An arbitration request involves a dispute over entitlement to a monetary transaction (over a commission).

Disputes subject to arbitration include: disputes with other members arising out of the real estate business and their relationship as REALTORS®.

With respect to MLS participants and subscribers, they agree to arbitrate disputes that not only arise out of the real estate business but they must be in conjunction with a listing filed in or with the MLS. MLS participants/subscribers are not obligated to arbitrate with the general public or their clients.

Disputes subject to arbitration include: contractual disputes with a member’s client arising out of an agency relationship between the member and client, provided the client agrees to submit the dispute to binding arbitration using the Association’s facilities and be bound by the arbitration award.

Policy Summary for REALTORS® Code of Ethics Training

Members of the National Association of REALTORS® are required to complete periodic ethics training of not less than 2 hours and 30 minutes of instructional time once every three years. Boards/Associations are required to provide access to such programs to members either on their own, in conjunction with other Boards/Associations, or through some other method (such as home study, correspondence or internet based courses). Any course offered by a Board/Association, regardless of format, must meet the learning objectives and minimum criteria for such courses as established by the National Association of REALTORS® from time to time.

A REALTOR® who has completed such periodic ethics training in any three year period in one Board/Association shall not be required to complete any further ethics training in such period if the REALTOR® is a member of another Board or Boards. In addition, a member may take such courses to satisfy the periodic ethics training through any Board/Association so long as the member can provide satisfactory documentation of completion to the member’s primary Board/Association.

A new member of a Board/Association who has completed the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation shall not be required to complete periodic ethics training until the expiration of the three year cycle in which the new member completed the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation.

Failure to complete the required periodic ethics training shall be a violation of a membership duty for which violation the member’s primary Board/Association shall suspend the member until such time as the member completes the required training.

Failure to meet the requirement

Failure to meet the requirement will result in suspended membership for the first two months (January and February) of the year following the end of any three (3) year cycle or until the requirement is met, whichever occurs sooner. On March 1 of that year, the membership of a member who is still suspended as of that date will be automatically terminated. Read more..

Government Relations

RPAC: Your Best Investment in Real Estate

The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to advance public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests, and promote a vibrant business environment.

Visit for more information: REALTORPARTY.REALTOR


Welcome to the realtor party picture

Why Political Involvement?

Since 1969 RPAC has been promoting the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. During the last federal election cycle alone, RPAC contributed over $12 million to pro-REALTOR® candidates to Congress, making it the number one trade association political action committee in the nation.

Why has RPAC been successful?

In America the exercise of good government has its foundation in the participation of its citizens in politics. By definition of the work you do, REALTORS® are contributors to the American dream- home ownership. REALTORS® make it possible for people to bring value to their communities, their lives, to schools and to the future. Increasingly REALTORS® are facing forces from many directions that threaten their ability to help bring about the American dream for more people. Increasing health care premiums, the economy, property tax burdens, rent controls, impact fees and the taking of private property for the public domain are only a quick handful of issues that somewhere, everyday REALTORS® confront.

That is why it is vitally important that REALTORS® be politically active: to take on the responsibility of protecting the values and rights we hold dear. If not REALTORS®… then who? No one knows a community better than a REALTOR®. It would be difficult to believe that a local no-growth group would represent your real estate business interests, or that those employed by the local government know best how much and where to spend the tax dollar better than you do. REALTORS® are the experts on their communities. REALTORS® know the lay of the land, the families, the best schools, the neighborhoods, and the leaders. With REALTORS® in virtually every community in the nation, you are in a strong position to be on the front line as either a proponent or a defender.

Failure to be involved politically can and likely will result in someone else filling the vacuum left by you. That may sound okay at first; because we are sure someone else will do the job and see things as we do. That is until one discovers that the voices being heard may be contrary to wise business planning and a threat to property owners and their rights. If you as a REALTOR® do not speak out, get involved, and help shape your community, someone else will. It is a good bet that they won’t be supportive of your position.

On the national level, we give our money to those in Congress who both understand and support REALTOR® issues. We look to build the future by putting RPAC dollars in places that will help advance the interests of Real Estate professionals. RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS®, run by REALTORS® and exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS®.
