RECO is committed to providing quality customer service to Ontario consumers and registrants.

To be a modern regulator, RECO must be open and accessible to the public. Just as RECO expects real estate salespeople, brokers and brokerages to provide competent, professional and ethical service, we hold ourselves to that same expectation. If you believe we have fallen short of our service standards, I encourage you to contact us.

RECO staff will review two main types of concerns: complaints regarding regulatory decisions (these include complaints about registrants, education, registration and discipline outcomes) and complaints about general customer service.

Complaints regarding regulatory decisions

RECO’s Registrar, Joseph Richer, is responsible for all regulatory decisions. If your complaint concerns a regulatory decision, you may contact him at

Complaints regarding general customer service

If your customer service matter was not addressed to your satisfaction through our escalation process, please contact me at Your concern will be reviewed by the appropriate member of RECO’s Senior Management Group. We are also accessible through regular mail or fax.
