#ItMattersToMe

 

Thank you Bev. When you first brought the matter of the supposed problem if an agent acts both for seller and buyer to my attention I wrote somebody that it is not necessarily true nor common that there must be a conflict. Besides many buyers have an independent assessment. The proposed approach is paternalistic and belittles peoples intelligence. Most people know and understand the value of what they look for in housing. Of course there are dishonest people but what the government is now doing will not protect from those who want or are cheating. Most agents are honest and besides could not afford to be biased one way nor the other as they would just lose clients and reputation. The action proposed is useless and should not be needed. If you wish you can send on my comments with my consent.

I am concerned about the new dual agent law. I think I should choose my agent – not be mandated by government rules. Please review this law.

Since IAG Report, driven in the most part by the Press and Government, the assault in the Industry has been relentless…and I may add without any serious collaboration or empirical facts being Brough forward by the aforementioned bodies. I ask respectfully ask, that the “powers to be” show us the propensity of empirical evidence in the over hundred thousand transactions that take place annually in British Columbia that merits this huge shift.

I joined the REAL BC alliance as I felt it was a way for REALTORS® to come together and work towards positive change. It’s important that we share our knowledge with the public, government officials, and media in order to bring awareness to issues that our industry and province faces.
