2013 Seminar Cruise – REAS Group

Continuing an eight year tradition we’ve put together a Seminar Cruise for January 5 – 12, 2013; seven nights round trip out of New Orleans, Louisiana aboard Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas. This is a great opportunity for Ontario real estate registrants to meet and develop professional contacts with other registrants and earn up to 18 continuing education …credits. Six credits for the mandatory RECO Real Estate Update (Residential) course and 3 credits for each of four other courses. You may enroll in as many or as few courses as you want. As on past Seminar Cruises Cassandra Agnew Walker, (a Broker with NRS Select Ltd. Brokerage), will be the instructor. Cassandra is a highly regarded instructor who uses her more than 29 years of real estate experience to make course material interesting and relevant. Seminars will be held during the day while Navigator of the Seas is underway so you won’t miss any of the three wonderful ports-of-call. Cozumel is our first stop. This picturesque Mexican island features lovely beaches, shopping, and the Chankanaab National Marine Park with excellent snorkeling and SCUBA. Grand Cayman, our second stop, has Seven Mile Beach, one of the nicest white sand beaches in the Caribbean. In addition to a wide array of beach related activities there are excursions for snorkelers, SCUBA enthusiasts, kayakers, sailors and those who simply want the experience of swimming with dolphins or rays. Shoppers will be delighted with the array of merchants offering internationally know name brand perfumes, jewelry, watches, and other fine goods Falmouth offers a historic district dating back to the 18th century sugar trade. You’ll find fine rum, original jerk, and Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee at this, our last port-of-call. There are excursions to a number of justly famous sites, Bob Marley’s birth & resting place, Dunn’s River Falls, and the bobsled run. Or you can book a beach horse-ride, a zip line adventure, a river tubing experience, or a round of golf. Navigator of the Seas offers a wide variety of day and night-time activities. Two pools and four whirlpools in the main pool area; a pool and whirlpools in the adults only Solarium; full service spa; rock climbing wall; basketball court; mini-golf course; exercise facility; jogging track; and in-line track.

UPDATES BROUGHT TO YOU BY RECO With RECO’s ongoing commitment to electronic service delivery, we are pleased to announce the launch of online transfers and terminations on MyWeb. As of April 30, 2012, your broker of record or branch manag…er can perform transfers and terminations with only a few clicks of a mouse. The enhancement of online services available on MyWeb is especially significant when you are transferring brokerages. Under REBBA 2002, registrants cannot trade in real estate until their application for transfer is completed. With the availability of online transfers, once your new broker of record or branch manager processes the online transfer, you will be able to get back to trading immediately. To process the transaction, your new brokerage will need a copy of the written notice of termination ending your employment with your current brokerage. To ensure that your broker of record or branch manager has all of the information they need to process your online transfer, please review the Frequently Asked Questions document and ensure that you provide them with all the information requested in the Employee Transfer Worksheet. Applications are still available for print and in a fillable PDF format on RECO’s website and MyWeb. RECO staff will continue to process paper applications in a timely manner. visit www.reco.on.ca for more info.
