Complaints

Filing a Complaint

For over 100 years, Realtors® have subscribed to one of the oldest codes of ethics for any trade organization. The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR)  defines the bylaws by which REALTORS® must oblige in both performance and service. When there is an alleged violation of the code of ethics, a complaint may be filed against a REALTOR® member of  a local board. But not all real estate licensees are REALTORS®. By joining a local board, all members agree to abide by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ Code of Ethics as a condition of membership. It is because of their obligation to abide by the Code of Ethics that a complaint may be filed.

NAR Board Approves Nationwide Broker Data Entry System

The NAR Board of Directors at its 2015 meeting May 16 in Washington, D.C., approved a partnership between NAR and its wholly owned subsidiary Realtors Property Resource® and another company, UpStream RE, LLC, to create a data entry and collection system for the brokerage community using the RPR® advanced Multi-list platform (AMP™). The system will give brokerages a single place to input their listing data for distribution on multiple platforms online, including Realtor.com, local MLSs, and broker websites. The initiative will be funded using NAR operating reserves over 36 months, at a net amount not to exceed $12 million.

The Board of Directors meeting closed out the 2015 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, attended by 8,000 REALTORS® and guests. The weeklong meetings included hundreds of visits by REALTORS® to their members of Congress to advocate on behalf of the real estate industry.

Prior to the vote on the data entry system, NAR CEO Dale Stinton described this latest initiative as an important strategic “pivot” for NAR and RPR® that helps brokers maintain control of their listing data while accomplishing long-sought technology objectives of real estate brokerage companies, MLSs, and associations by creating a single back-end entry point for all listing data that is then distributed to all the end-points identified by the broker.

The data entry system is explained in a video on REALTOR.org. Access that now.

Before the board vote on the new system, NAR CEO Dale Stinton provided an historical perspective on the association’s strategic initiatives.
