This past weekend, RAHB Brokerages and REALTORS® showed true leadership as they cancelled open houses across our market area. President Kathy Della-Nebbia manned the phones all weekend, speaking directly with Brokerages and REALTORS® about the importance of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ontario emergency declaration.
Kathy was gratified to note that many REALTORS® understood the importance and urgency, and were already in the process of cancelling open houses. The RAHB IT and MLS® departments worked with members to quickly remove the open houses from our MLS® system and REALTOR.ca.
Thank you to all of the RAHB REALTORS® and Brokerages who made the health and safety of our community a priority this past weekend, and are doing the right thing by following the recommendations of government and health officials. This was a collaborative approach and a solution to an unenforceable rule.
