SUBMIT AN ETHICS COMPLAINT

  • STEP 1: Add a Complainant

    A Complainant is an individual who chooses to file a complaint against an Oregon REALTORS® member. Complainants, while they are able to testify during a hearing, are different than witnesses. Witnesses have a limited ability to participate in a hearing and are only present during their testimony. Complainants remain for the duration of the hearing.
  • Additional Complainant

  • STEP 2: Add Respondent(s), Article(s) Violated and a Description

    After adding a Respondent, you must select at least one Article for each Respondent. *A Respondent is an Oregon REALTORS® member who you believe has violated the Code of Ethics or the Bylaws of the Association. NOTE: Alleged violations of MLS rules and regulations should be reported in accordance with MLS rules and not as the basis for your ethics complaint.
  • Reminder: Each Respondent must be an active member of Oregon REALTORS® and you can also search for them using the "Find a REALTOR®" tool on the website. If you have problems locating the REALTOR®, please send email to: prostandards@oregonrealtors.org
