Statement re High Standards

Statement from BCREA

Vancouver, BC – April 30, 2018. BCREA today released the following statement:

As the organization representing REALTORS® in BC for more than 40 years, the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) strongly disapproves of any unethical activities that reduce housing affordability, take advantage of consumers or undermine transparency.

“Such practices don’t reflect the standards that the overwhelming majority of REALTORS® follow, and are offside with the values of our profession,” said James Palanio, incoming President of BCREA.

“We expect REALTORS® to achieve the highest standards of professionalism, including compliance with laws and the REALTOR® Code of Ethics,” said BCREA CEO Darlene Hyde.

BCREA supports the government and the regulator’s recent initiatives to track pre-sale information, tighten the complaint process and enforce higher penalties and delicense where allegations are proven. Today, we are reaching out to the Minister of Finance to discuss our support for ongoing work to reduce speculative activities, increase affordability and promote transparency.

BCREA is the professional association for about 23,000 REALTORS® in BC, focusing on provincial issues that impact real estate. Working with the province’s 11 real estate boards, BCREA provides continuing professional education, advocacy, economic research and standard forms to help REALTORS® provide value for their clients.

To demonstrate the profession’s commitment to improving Quality of Life in BC communities, BCREA supports policies that help ensure economic vitality, provide housing opportunities, preserve the environment, protect property owners and build better communities with good schools and safe neighbourhoods.
