The Ombudsman Program in its simplest definition is informal telephone mediation. In some cases, it can address and solve minor complaints from the public. It can also solve inter-Realtor conflicts before they become serious problems. Like a mediator, an ombudsman helps parties find solutions.

This free program is available to NOR members, their clients and customers.
