Core Standards Q & A
Q: What are Core Standards?
A: Core Standards are standards that every association is required to meet by NAR. It includes things like Ethics, Advocacy, Consumer Outreach, and Financial Solvency. It is a 7 page, 61 item document that has to be completed every year, so it is no small task!
Q: How can I help complete Core Standards?
A: Get involved! Your participation in things like Realtor In Government Day, Realtor Ring Day, and attending membership meetings will help us meet Core Standards requirements!
Q: Where is MCBR at with 2020 Core Standards?
A: We already have 5 things checked off, and it's not even the end of January! That doesn't mean it's not important to get involved and help with the rest though!
Q: Where do I go if I want to learn more about Core Standards and why they are important?
A: You can visit the NAR website's link below, or stop in the Board Office and talk to Katelyn. She will be happy to explain more!

Commercial Listings in MLS
MCBR will now be policing commercial listings entered into MLS. Commercial listings are not required to be entered into MLS, but if you chose to do so, you must follow the same rules as regular listings. (Per Metro MLS) If you do not follow the rules, you will be sanctioned.
If you have any questions, please: Email Katelyn
Titan, our new pup from HSSC. He's 10 months old, and super cute! As you can see, he didn't want me working from home the other day, and put his face on my book!
What's Up In The Office
Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was BUSY! And now my puppy is sick. We just adopted him recently from the Sheboygan Humane Society. Poor guy has been through a lot lately! He may be getting a little spoiled now that he is with us........ 😉
On Friday I participated in an RPAC webinar put on by Joe Murray at WRA. I learned some helpful information, and also found out that WRA sets goals for each of the local boards for RPAC contributions. Our goal for 2020 is $4,000! Expect to hear more about RPAC from RPAC Committee Chair, Travis Stevens, and I soon!
I know I said this once before, but please make sure you are making your check out to the right entity. Always check your invoices to see if it's from MCBR or MLS!
Just a reminder that I will be in Madison on Thursday for the AEC meeting at WRA. I won't be answering emails or phone calls that day.
Have a FABULOUS week!!
