Professional Conduct and Client Care


In the event that our level of client care and professional conduct does not meet your expectations, we will listen. In accordance with the Real Estate Agents Act 2008, Professional Conduct and Client Care Rules, we would like you to follow this process when raising a complaint.

In accordance with Section 14 of the Real Estate Agents Act 2008, the Real Estate Authority has set down under Rule 12 of the Code of Professional Conduct & Client Care Rules 2012, that all agencies must have a written in-house procedure for dealing with complaints and disputes and that clients and customers are aware of these procedures.

We welcome your feedback and will endeavour to fix any issue that you are not satisfied with. In the event that the service provided by a Salesperson Licensee does not meet the expectation of the prospective client, client or customer, those concerns should be addressed in the first instance to the Branch/Area Manager concerned.

If a satisfactory outcome is not achieved, the matter may be referred in writing to the Regional Manager/Agent Licensee who will register the issue as a formal complaint and action it in accordance with the in-house procedures as set out below.
