The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) is calling for a strengthened real estate education program in its third white paper, Working Towards Excellence: A Forward Looking Plan for Real Estate Registration Education.
OREA is commending the Ontario government for introducing real estate legislation that tackles conflict of interest situations and consumer confusion that can arise in the current multiple representation system.
Ontario Real Estate Association president Ettore Cardarelli says, “We need your feedback on these proposals because it will determine which ideas OREA takes to the government to improve our industry as a whole.”
A recent livestreamed event was designed to show members and the public that OREA is taking the gloves off when it comes to dealing with government policies and with the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO).
The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) sent a controversial newsletter about the use of escalation clauses to agents across the province. Discussions on the Internet lit up with criticisms of the RECO position.
