Staying Up With Laws and Contract Changes in Baltimore

This past week I attended a session at GBBR listening to Carolyn Cook and Celeste Filoia.

Thanks to Kim Jones GBBR's Rookie REALTOR® Society: GRRS for putting the word out so we could all benefit from this very informative meeting. There were no CE credits, just lots of good information and an opportunity to ask questions.

Some of the topics discussed were about the new disclosure for TEAMS, Advertising, Real Estate Signage, including directional signs, door knocking, not leaving literature at vacant properties, Tax information on MRIS, Septic systems, ground rents, Mortgage interest deductions, Lead Paint contractors needing to be certified and RESPA. Good discussions and questions continued long after the session ended.

Celeste Filoia from MAR's Legal Department and Carolyn Cook of GBBR highlighted the newly enacted laws and contract changes that are impacting the Real Estate Industry in Maryland. 15 hours of Education every 2 years is a pittance for those interested in being an asset to their clients.

Celeste Filoia from MAR's Legal Department and GBBR's own Carolyn Cook were  on hand to enlighten us about the changes that will impact the way we do business.

We are quite fortunate to have Carolyn, Filoia and Kim to keep us informed. Every single agent should have been there! The price was right! The information priceless!
Thank you all!
