All real estate brokers and salespersons in Ontario are registered with, and regulated by, Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO). That’s why working with a real estate professional provides buyers and sellers with three pillars of protection: Knowledge, Professional Standards and Insurance.
Real estate professionals must complete courses before they can enter the real estate sector. And once they are in the profession, they complete additional courses every two years to keep their knowledge up-to-date and their skills sharp.
Brokers and salespersons are required to uphold professional standards that emphasize treating anyone involved in a transaction with fairness, honesty and integrity, and following rules and regulations that are there to protect consumers. In the rare instance that something goes wrong and you want to complain about your representative or the brokerage, RECO will investigate the complaint and take steps to hold the real estate professional accountable for their actions.
Deposit insurance provides you with peace of mind knowing that your hard-earned deposit will be held in trust and insured against loss, insolvency or misappropriation by a brokerage.
As RECO registered real estate sales representatives Scott and Susan Masterson would be pleased to answer any questions you may about the services* they can provide.
