Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend RECO’s AGM in person, or via webcast. A recording of the meeting is now available.
This includes remarks from RECO’s Chair, CEO and Registrar, and the Q&A period.
To learn more about RECO’s year in review, and the years ahead, check out these resources:
- I recently bought a house that has a spacious basement that I intended to use for storage, but I just discovered there’s a long-term tenant living there. What can I do?
- My real estate salesperson wants to host an open house in my home, but I’m undecided. What happens if something gets broken or stolen?
- My family is interested in buying a cottage; are there any special considerations we should know about before we get started?
- My salesperson suggested I should make my offer conditional on it passing a home inspection. Do I really need to do that?
Are you receiving every email RECO sends you? Check your spam folder
In recent weeks, some registrants have informed RECO staff they have missed important notifications from RECO because certain emails were mistakenly sent to “spam” folders. Registrants with gmail.com email addresses are especially at risk.
As the regulator of real estate salespeople, brokers and brokerages, RECO regularly communicates with its registrants for many reasons. Email notifications are critical for keeping registrants up to date on their education, registration, insurance and regulatory compliance requirements, and to communicate with registrants regarding inspections and disciplinary matters.
RECO is working with Google and other email providers to address this issue. In the meantime, RECO asks you to do a few things:
- Check your spam folder just to be sure RECO emails haven’t been redirected; and
- Ask your colleagues if they have also received this email and advise them to check their spam folders if they haven’t.
Should you find an email from RECO in your gmail.com spam folder, open the email and use the “Report not spam” command. You should also create a filter for @reco.on.ca in Gmail and select the “Never send it to Spam” option.
