Not all licensed real estate agents are real estate® agents. Real estate brokers and sales representatives differ from non-licensees® in that they voluntarily sign a strict code of ethics. North Carolina Real Estate Commission 1313 Navaho Drive Raleigh, NC 27609. Real estate agent organizations and associations are responsible for receiving and resolving ethics complaints and requests® for arbitration. This obligation is enforced by local, state and regional complaints committees and professional standards committees. Many complaints received by organizations and associations could be avoided through better communication and an initial problem-solving capacity at the local level. The NC Realtors` Ombudsman Program® is designed to provide this capability. “Real Estate Agent” ® means membership in the National Association of REALTORS® (“NAR”). In addition to being members of the NAR, real estate agents are members of a local and state association of real estate®® agents. If you believe that a real estate agent has violated one or more sections of the Code of Ethics, you may file an ethics complaint alleging a violation of the local association of real estate agents of which REALTOR is a member or participates in a multi-listing service owned or operated by a REALTOR®® association®®. You can search for a member`s local affiliation here.
