The Senior Investigators position is responsible for undertaking investigations into complaints about licensees directed by Complaints Assessment Committees (CACs); investigations into other reports of harm; the design and delivery of proactive compliance activities and interventions designed to promote and protect the interests of consumers engaging in real estate transactions; professional report writing on the issues, and the preparation and management of more serious cases to the Real Estate Agents Disciplinary Tribunal (Tribunal) or District Court.
