The Colorado Division of Real estate's website would be a good source.

If you are asking that question, then you have to ask if other clients are asking the sme question about that Real Estate agent. It is too easy to get a Real Estate license and there are too many potential opportunities for abuse. The Colorado Real Estate Commission takes good care of clients with issues.
Best of luck.

Ohm Spirit,

All good answers below. This is a very unusual question for a buyer or seller to ask. If you are having an issue with a particular agent that you can't resolve, I would start by contacting his managing broker. If that doesn't solve the problem, you can contact the proper authorities at the Denver Board of Realtors to address your complaint. Most issues can be worked out by talking it through. If there really are ethical issues we as Realtors want to see the problems resolved. Best of success.

As mentioned by others, the ethics guidelines are, for the most part, part of the Association of Realtors and their individual Boards of Realtors. The Denver Metro Association of Realtors covers a good portion of the metro area so I would start there. There are many real estate agents out there that are not members of their local board of Realtors so they are not bound by these ethics. Whatever you do, choose Realtor. That means that they are members of their local association, the Colorado Association and the National Association.
All real estate agents must follow the laws as set forth by the real estate commission (DORA). You can check there for any disciplinary actions taken on a licensed agent as well. But not all lisencees are members of the Associations we discussed above and don't live by those ethics.

The real estate commission's website is a good place to start, and depending on what part of town you're interested in, checking the realtor's status with a local board is valuable as well. If I can answer any specific questions, don't hestate to contact me at 303-906-3150 or jmontgomery@coloradomasters.com. Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc., http://www.jmontgomery.com

Here is a link to National Association of Realtors code of ethics: http://www.realtor.org/mempolweb.nsf/pages/2011code

If your agent is a Realtor they have taken an oath to abide by this code, and their license status may depend on it.

If they have a Real Estate license, but are not a Realtor (hence have not sworn an oath to stand by this code of ethics), you may want to find someone else.
