Professional Standards & Arbitration
Boards and associations of REALTORS® are responsible for enforcing
the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. Locally, JTHS's Professional Standards
and Grievance Committees fulfills this function.
The Code of Ethics imposes duties above and in addition to those
imposed by law or regulation which apply only to real estate
professionals who choose to become REALTORS®.
Many difficulties between real estate professionals result from
misunderstanding or miscommunication. If you have a problem with a
real estate professional, you may want to speak with them or with a
principal broker in the firm. Open, constructive discussion often
resolves questions or differences, eliminating the need for further
Contact for Grievances
If, after discussing matters with your real estate professional or
a principal broker in that firm, you are still not satisfied, you may
want to contact JTHS for informal advice or mediation.
If you would like to file an ethics complaint or have an
arbitration request please use the following contact information:
