Windermere Real Estate Southern California Realtor® Stephanie Taylor, who is based out of the Palm Springs Main office located at 850 North Palm Canyon Drive, recently completed mediation training hosted by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) at the organization’s headquarters in Chicago. Last year, Stephanie completed the California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) mediation training in Los Angeles.
Rather than going through the process of arbitration, where there is a win-lose scenario, the Realtor® Code of Ethics calls for mediation, which helps restore respect and cooperation between the disputing parties and ultimately benefits consumers. The multi-day training program Stephanie completed in Chicago prepared her to mediate disputes between Realtors® arising out of cooperative real estate transactions and disputes between Realtors® and their clients. The training was taught by esteemed law professors from Northwestern University and Duke University.
After completing the C.A.R. training last year, Stephanie began serving as an ombudsman for the state association, taking hotline phone calls to offer dispute resolution over the phone. “I love real estate, and this is just taking that passion to a new place,” says Stephanie. “I enjoy providing options in an effort to help both sides come to a resolution during a difficult situation.”
Stephanie cites her newfound experience in mediation as a parallel path to her flourishing real estate career, serving for the last two years on the Grievance Committee of the California Desert Association of Realtors (CDAR). This year, she joined the Professional Standards Committee and is working with her colleagues and CDAR to bring mediation and dispute resolution to a local level. “This is something that the national and state level associations are trying to establish with local affiliates by offering these types of resources and services,” Stephanie concludes.
Stephanie Taylor earned her California real estate license in 2007 and her broker’s license in 2010, and works with buyers, sellers, and investors in Palm Springs and throughout the Coachella Valley.
