NMAR Growth & Involvement Program

Participants will gain confidence, leadership skills, and motivation to become more involved in their local and state associations of REALTORS®.

Ombudsman

The Ombudsman Program is the first step in conflict resolution. It is an informal, neutral, independent, and highly confidential way for NMAR members as well as their clients and customers to express their concerns and explore options to help resolve those concerns. An ombudsman is an individual appointed to assist parties in the resolution of disputes through constructive communication and advocating for consensus and understanding.

Mediation

Mediation is offered to REALTORS® and to members of the public to facilitate the resolution of disputes related to real estate transactions and to interactions between parties and/or REALTOR® members in the course of their real estate relationship. A neutral and impartial third person assists the parties in discussing and clarifying the issues, and in considering alternatives to a possible resolution. 

Arbitration

In the event of contractual disputes or specific non-contractual disputes as defined in Standard of Practice 17-4 between REALTORS® and between REALTORS® and their clients and customers, REALTORS® shall submit the dispute to arbitration in accordance with the policies of the Association rather than to litigate the matter.

Ethics

Anyone who alleges a violation of the Code of Ethics by a REALTOR® member may submit an Ethics Complaint to the Association.
