About the Center
**Due to COVID-19 related restrictions, we currently only accept requests for mediation filed online. If you have mailed in a Request to Mediate and have not received notice of receipt, please refile electronically. Additionally, during this period, in-person mediations may not be legally permitted. In addition, not all parties, counsel or mediators involved in a mediation may be comfortable with an in-person mediation until a COVID-19 vaccine is available. Most of our panel mediators offer online mediation services via teleconferencing and videoconferencing solutions. We encourage the parties to consider these services to ensure a timely resolution to their dispute. If the parties elect to delay mediation until an in-person mediation may occur, you may still file and we will process your request and coordinate assignment to a mediator. The mediator will then work with the parties to schedule an in-person mediation once permitted.**
The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Real Estate Mediation Center for Consumers offers a highly qualified pool of specially trained, objective and reliable mediation professionals to assist home buyers and sellers (as well as other parties to real estate transactions) in resolving their real estate disputes.
Why mediate with us? We provide consumers with a supportive and confidential process that will assist them to reach a mutually agreeable settlement with the help of a mediator of their choosing.
