Real Estate Mediation is an alternative to the more costly and time consuming process of civil litigation in the courts. An impartial mediator, familiar with real estate, handles the dispute in a non-threatening environment, allowing all sides involved a chance to discuss the matter. A real estate mediator does not issue orders, find fault, or make a determination. The goal is to have the parties reach their own settlement.
Real Estate Mediation Service (REMS) is a trade name used by Behrend Mediation Services for its contract with the REALTORS Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (RAMP) to administer their Dispute Resolution System. The Dispute Resolution System is a program for buyers, sellers, and REALTORS to resolve disputes that arise in the purchase and sale of real estate. RAMP is committed to the principal that the best way to resolve differences is in a non-hostile, impartial atmosphere.
Real Estate Mediation is often part of an agreement of sale. If the parties have such an agreement, any dispute arising after the sales agreement is signed will go through mediation.
Mr. Behrend is on a number of mediation panels for state and federal courts, governmental and non-profit agencies.
