ETHICS AND ARBITRATION
REALTORS® adhere to a strict code of ethics that requires fair and ethical business practices in all real-estate transaction-related matters. The code of ethics is enforced by DMAAR. The Iowa Association of REALTORS® provides enforcement and mediation assistance to DMAAR in the form of a professional standards hearing and/or assistance from IAR legal counsel.
