Covering 63 jurisdictions in 11 countries, the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO®) granted the RECA a Communications Award for the 2016 edition of the Advertising Guidelines, as well as an Education Award for its “Practice of Rural Real Estate” pre-licensing education course.
“ARELLO® selected the most recent edition of RECA’s Advertising Guidelines as an example of regulatory communication that enhances consumer protection, while improving the industry and helping RECA achieve its mandate,” the Council announced in its September 27 press release.
“The Advertising Guidelines are a resource for licensees that helps them do their jobs better while increasing their compliance with legislation and raising the professionalism of the industry; that, in turn, protects consumers.”
Meanwhile, the Education Award is endowed upon organizations that conduct training which ultimately improves how the real estate industry goes about its business.
“ARELLO® recognized that the engaging design and work-ready focus of RECA’s Practice of Rural Real Estate course will lead to professional licensees who are able to practice real estate in compliance with legislation, and competently serve the real estate needs of rural buyers and sellers,” according to the news release.
Last week, the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) earned two prestigious awards from an international organization of industry regulators.
