REALTORS® abide by the strict standards of the Code of Ethics. If a REALTOR® has failed to meet these standards, you can file a complaint.
Members of the Yuma Association of REALTORS® are under the jurisdiction of the REALTORS® ethics enforcement program administered by the Arizona REALTORS®, the statewide organization. If your dispute is with a real estate professional who is not a REALTOR®, options may include contacting the Arizona real estate licensing authority.
Before filing a complaint, consider using an Ombudsman. According to the Arizona REALTORS® more than three-quarters of all Ombudsman cases are successfully resolved without cost and with only a simple, one-page form to complete.
