Code of Ethics
ETHICS COMPLAINTS, ARBITRATION REQUESTS AND RELATED INFORMATION
For Consumers and REALTORS®: NAR's Code of Ethics and Professional Standards
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 Gainesville-Alachua County 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.
To obtain information on filing an ethics complaint or request for arbitration, contact:
