Vancouver, BC - April 30, 2018. BCREA today released the following statement:

As the organization representing REALTORS® in BC for more than 40 years, the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) strongly disapproves of any unethical activities that reduce housing affordability, take advantage of consumers or undermine transparency.

"Such practices don't reflect the standards that the overwhelming majority of REALTORS® follow, and are offside with the values of our profession," said James Palanio, incoming President of BCREA.

"We expect REALTORS® to achieve the highest standards of professionalism, including compliance with laws and the REALTOR® Code of Ethics," said BCREA CEO Darlene Hyde.

BCREA supports the government and the regulator's recent initiatives to track pre-sale information, tighten the complaint process and enforce higher penalties and delicense where allegations are proven. Today, we are reaching out to the Minister of Finance to discuss our support for ongoing work to reduce speculative activities, increase affordability and promote transparency.
