So, you have a problem with a licensed real estate sales agent or maybe you’re aware of conduct of a real estate broker that you believe is improper. 

Standards & Enforcement Services (or “SES”) is the TREC division that handles enforcement of the Commission’s laws and Rules through complaint investigation and disciplinary action, and we're here to help. 

What should you do?

If you have information that a licensed real estate agent or broker has possibly violated the Real Estate License Act or the Rules of the Texas Real Estate Commission, you can file a complaint with TREC.

From the Executive Director...

So far, 2019 has offered Texas both very cold and very mild conditions – a bit unpredictable as this new year advances.  Perhaps this corresponds to the unexpected combination of elements at work as the legislative session gets underway?  New leadership in the House has opened up new possibilities for cooperation on advancing public policy issues – a situation we welcome and look forward to as the Sunset process holds the promise of developing new guidance on matters of concern to our agency.   

Our team is tracking all relevant bills filed, filing fiscal notes as requested, and preparing potential input for our policymakers to consider if we think a bill may have ramifications for the agency. We have not yet received a draft of our agency’s Sunset bill but we expect to see it soon, and certainly before the bill filing deadline in early March! In the meantime, we remain open to discussing any related approved topics or objectives as we respond to all inquiries from legislative offices.
