Services Spotlight — And the awards goes to …

Posted by on Sep 2, 2016 in DS, Services Spotlight | 0 comments

Everyone knows that RAHB has exceptional members, but did you know that there are ways these members can be recognized and their contributions celebrated?

RAHB has four awards that recognize RAHB members who go above and beyond! These awards are truly a recognition by peers, as recipients are chosen by task forces made up of RAHB members. Awards are made only when candidates meet stringent criteria, so they may not be given out every year.


The Honorary Life award goes to a RAHB member who:

  • is a recognized leader in the real estate industry
  • has demonstrated exemplary service to organized real estate
  • is a person of positive character, integrity and an advocate for ethical real estate practice
  • has made a positive contribution to the association over a period of no less than ten years
  • exemplifies professionalism in real estate

The Volunteer of the Year award is presented to a RAHB committee member who demonstrates exceptional qualities, enthusiasm and perseverance or has gone above and beyond to serve their fellow RAHB members.

The Award of Merit goes to a RAHB member who has shown exceptional dedication and service to RAHB and has contributed positively to RAHB for three or more years.

The Outstanding Community Service award is presented to a member who has shown outstanding dedication to the real estate profession and exceptional volunteer service to their community for three years or more.


Do you know a member who you think should receive one of these awards? If so, be sure to nominate them for an award! Watch REALINFO for more information about award nominations and deadlines.

Ethics Corner — How much do you know about CREA trademarks?
(And yes, you should know about CREA trademarks!)

The Canadian Real Estate Association owns the trademarks for the Multiple Listing Service®, MLS® and REALTOR®. These trademarks have value to CREA, and they also have value to all CREA members because they denote special services and standing.

Every REALTOR® should know how to use the terms MLS®, Multiple Listing Service® and REALTOR® correctly. There is a wealth of information about CREA trademarks on the CREA page in REALTOR Link® – just look under Resources and Compliance > Trademarks and Logos > Trademark Resources.

In the meantime, here’s a short video explaining how to use the MLS® trademark correctly:
