There has been a lot of press lately about realtors and our ability or lack of ability to self-regulate. I personally think that Christie Clark's decision to "take control" was a sledge hammer approach where a collaborative hammer might have done the job more efficiently and effectively. The report that precipitated this move (IAG REPORT
) mentions several ways our Real Estate Council has failed to regulate and also mentions that our BC government has failed to give the Real Estate Council the "teeth" with which to regulate. Have a look at Premier Clark's short video on the proposed changes.
