Just Do It!

Get it out of the way on June 17.  Your CEO, Jo Usry, is teaching the “Raise Your Right Hand” (required Code of Ethics class) at the REALTOR® Institute.  It’s not your same old, tired Code of Ethics class. 

Procuring Cause and Buyer Representation Agreements

If you enter into a buyer representation agreement with a buyer and your buyer “gets loose,” buying directly from a seller or through another Broker in MLS, the buyer representation agreement isn’t a determiner of procuring cause.

Office Closure - April 24-25 for MLS EXPO

The CMR and MLS office will be closed April 24-25, 2019, while the staff works the MLS EXPO.  The office will reopen Friday, April 26, 2019, at 9 am.

When the Client of Another REALTOR® Contacts You

Be careful and know what you can and cannot do.

If a seller contacts you, know what you can and cannot do if the listing has not yet expired.

If a buyer contacts you, determine whether or not he/she is a party to a buyer representation agreement.

Showing Instructions also means ACCESS instructions.

Be careful and avoid a potential ethics violation (Article 3, 3-9) by assuming that the MLS term “showing instructions” ONLY apply if you are showing a property to a potential client.  “Showing instructions” includes ACCESS to the property for any reason.  To say that you didn’t need to follow showing instructions because you were not “showing” the property is an improper interpretation.

Don’t rely on social media and news from places other than NAR for reliable updates on the class action anti-trust lawsuit (Moehrl v NAR et al).  Instead, rely solely on the updates that Katie Johnson, NAR’s Chief Legal Counsel, provides to the membership.

Attention MAR’s Standard Forms Users

Six of MAR’s forms have been revised and have 2/2019 revision dates. If you use MAR’s forms, ensure you are using only the most current ones. Using copies of old forms from 2008 is not in the best interest of your client. Although not revised, Form 39 Seller Multiple Offer Notification and Form 40 Buyer’s Agent Acknowledgement are forms that have kept many REALTORS® out of harm’s way by presenting Multiple Offers according to the Seller’s wishes. Check them out in the Forms Library if you haven’t seen them yet.
