What does the real estate board do?
The local real estate board is responsible for monitoring and enforcing CREA standards as well as any local rules.
They are also responsible for keeping the Realtors educated by having a mandatory credit system by which you earn credits by taking courses.
This ensures agents are kept in the loop with any changes or new information on anything from Strata law, to a yearly legal update, to marketing in the digital age.
There are a number of courses taught by experienced property agents, professors, lawyers, and more. Most importantly, they are responsible for the collection and distribution of property purchase and sale data.
Therefore, this data is vital for an agent to accurately justify a purchase or sale price.
This ensures the public and the agents are making the best decisions, as well as staying informed on the market activity for specific areas within that board’s jurisdiction.
Vancouver Island Real Estate Association
CREA is an acronym for the Canadian Real Estate Association. They are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the Real Estate sales industry by establishing the “Realtor Code.”
The Code provides guidelines for how a Realtor should ethically, morally, and legally conduct themselves. They are instrumental in maintaining standards for the industry which then strengthens consumer confidence.
CREA also provides all necessary legal documents required to facilitate a successful transaction (contract purchase and sale, working with a realtor, FINTRAC, agency agreements, etc.).
Service that meets or exceeds CREA Standards. The general public will find it very difficult to navigate a transaction without the guidance of a trusted agent.
It is our job to ensure the client is able to make an informed decision with all the information provided both from experience and on paper.
