Professional Standards

The St. Cloud Area Association of REALTORS® (SCAAR) is a local trade association, chartered by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), charged with the responsibility of enforcing standards for professional conduct, or the Code of Ethics, within the Association's membership. The Minnesota Association of REALTORS® (MNAR) handles all complaints for SCAAR.

Any complaints should be directed to the Minnesota Association of REALTORS® at 5750 Lincoln Drive, Edina, MN 55436 or 1-800-862-6097.  The Grievance and Professional Standards Committees conduct investigations and hearings involving members to enforce those professional standards.

Any professional standards complaint received, as well as any material related to a complaint received, is considered to be strictly confidential in nature.  Both the Grievance and Professional Standards Committees are responsible for ensuring due process is afforded to all parties, whether it be in the conduct of a hearing to enforce the Code of Ethics or in the arbitration of commission disputes arising out of the real estate business.
