SCAOR president completes national program in Chicago

Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) 2014 President Brad Riedle recently completed a comprehensive multi-day training program conducted in Chicago by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

The training is specifically designed for attendees to mediate financial disputes involving cooperative real estate transactions, as well as disputes between buyers, sellers and/or other Realtors.

“Every now and then, we have a transaction that doesn’t go as smoothly as it should, and SCAOR is often called on to mediate those potential disputes. As president, this training was important for me so that I can now play a more essential role in these proceedings,” said Riedle.

“This process allows Realtors to arbitrate disputes among themselves, rather than in the courts — a scenario which has proven beneficial in the past and I expect will continue to prove beneficial in the future.”

Riedle completed his training at NAR headquarters in Chicago, on July 16-18. The NAR-sponsored training has been available around the country since 1999, with more than 1,000 Realtors and association staff members taking advantage of the program during that time.
