Errors and potential violations of the MLS rules that are reported by other RAM members are carefully reviewed by staff before a warning or fine is issued for that violation. Not all errors reported to RAM are violations. Staff may reach out to the reporter of a false violation if non-issues are being reported.
Here are a few ways that a RAM MLS member can report a listing issue to the MLS office for review.
Option 1: Click on Correction button above the listing
Option 2: Click on the Actions Button and choose the ReportIt link. A similar form like Option 1 will appear and can write in your message.
Option 3: Send an email to email@example.com.
If you prefer to report an issue or concern directly to the MLS simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is also the best way to report an off market listing that is not in MLS.
If you happen to know the listing agent personally there is nothing wrong with reaching out to them directly to let them know about a data or photo error. RAM will not disclose the reporter of the violation to the listing office. Reporting a correction violation on someone doesn’t necessarily mean they will get an fine, education and training is our primary goal.
