Do you need help communicating with an Arizona REALTOR® or do you have questions about Arizona real estate transactions?

Trained REALTOR® Ombudsmen often function as an intermediary who communicate the concerns of one party to the other over the phone, so a positive relationship can be restored.  Ombudsmen can also help to explain customary Arizona real estate business practices, and discuss available options without judgment.

Ombudsmen do not determine whether ethic violations have occurred, rather they anticipate, identify and resolve misunderstandings and disagreements before matters progress into a dispute and possible charges of unethical conduct.

Ombudsmen can field and respond to a wide variety of inquiries, including general questions about real estate practice, transaction details, ethical practice and enforcement issues. They can also receive and respond to questions and complaints about REALTORS®, may contact REALTORS® to inform them that a client or customer has raised a question or issue and can contact members to obtain information necessary to provide an informed response.
