PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS & ETHICS
As REALTORS, we pledge to abide by a strict code of ethics that safeguards our clients and the public. NAR's The Code of Ethics imposes duties above--and in addition to--those governed by law or regulation, and apply only to real estate licensees who are also REALTOR members.
FILING A COMPLAINT
Only REALTORS are subject to NAR's Code of Ethics. If you have questions about filing a Code of Ethics complaint, please contact Sandy Naragon at . If the real estate licensee you are dealing with is not a REALTOR, your options will include contacting the Ohio Division of Real Estate & Professional Licensing.
Once an ethics complaint is filed, it goes through a review process with representatives from across the state.
Note: Complaints and/or commission disputes involving REALTORS from the Akron Cleveland, Dayton and Northwest Associations of REALTORS must be filed with their respective local association. Complaints filed with Ohio REALTORS involving their members will be forwarded to the appropriate association which may cause delays.
