REALTOR® Code of Ethics Enforcement

The Clarksville Association of REALTORS firmly supports and enforces the REALTOR Code of Ethics.  If you feel that you have grounds to file an Ethics Complaint or an Arbitration Request, please use the following information.

Before You File 

Read this brochure before your file an Ethics or Arbitration Complaint


Ethics Complaints

Utilize the CAR Ombudsman Program

We have several REALTOR members trained in mediation and conflict resolution that can help act as an unbiased 3rd party intermediary between you and a REALTOR.  This process usually takes less than 72-hours to complete.  At the end, if you are still not satisfied, a full Ethics complaint process is your next option.

To request Ombudsman services, please call the Executive Officer, Deb Haines-Kulick at the CAR office at  (931)552-3567.
