Resolving Commission Disputes

The Toledo Board of REALTORS® offers members and their clients two options – Arbitration and Mediation, to settle commission disputes. As a voluntary alternative, mediation is strongly encouraged, but not mandatory.

Mediation is a form of facilitated negotiation, conducted in a more informal setting, by which a trained and experienced third party helps the disputing partings reach a mutually acceptable resolution.

An Arbitration Hearing is conducted in a formal setting, by which a panel of REALTOR® members renders a decision based on the testimony given by both the Complainant and Respondent.

Mediation vs. Arbitration

Why Mediation Works:

If an agreement is reached through mediation, both parties will be asked to sign a written agreement and $200 of each party’s $250 filing fee will be refunded. Failure to reach an agreement through mediation will not be considered by the hearing panel during a subsequent arbitration hearing.
