“Ontario REALTORS® are very pleased to see phase one of our proposals for modernizing the rules that govern our industry become law. This legislation provides greater transparency for consumers and protects their right to work with the REALTOR® of their choice.
Ontario REALTORS® are committed to helping Ontarians achieve the dream of home ownership and build strong communities. This is why we are encouraged that the Ontario government listened to our call for higher fines for those who break the trust of consumers. This in turn will instill consumer confidence, deter unethical behaviour and make Ontario a leader in North America when it comes to professional standards in the real estate industry.
We appreciate the government’s commitment to working with Ontario REALTORS® to modernize the rules that govern real estate in Ontario. And we look forward to working with all three political parties on the second phase of the REBBA Review next spring.”
- Tim Hudak, CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association
