President’s Message

Rob Norquist, November 2020

 

 

Recently the Department of Real Estate made an announcement that the Governor extended the license expiration date for real estate Brokers and Salespersons.  Anyone who’s license would expire after April 20, 2020 will now be extended to June 31, 2021.  The official notification is located in this months newsletter.

The National Association of REALTORS® Conference is being held virtually this month.  There are several great speakers including Economist Lawrence Yun that you can register to hear.  If you’d like to register or see the conference agenda and speakers, please visit https://www.conference.realtor/.  The big topic for the meetings this month is the Professional Standards Committee recommendations for changes to the Code of Ethics.

The NAR Professional Standards Committee met on October 5, 2020, to consider recommendations from its Interpretations and Procedures Advisory Board on the Code of Ethics’ applicability to discriminatory speech and conduct. The Committee approved the Advisory Board’s recommendations, therefore six of the recommendations will be presented to the NAR Board of Directors for a vote at their November 13, 2020 meeting. This months newsletter contains information on the Committee’s recommendations for your review.
