Avoiding Broker Citations
Maintaining accurate information and cooperating with CRMLS Compliance is the responsibility of both the Listing Agent and the Office Manager/Listing Broker. All notices sent to the Listing Agent are also copied to the applicable Broker of Record, Association, and (if appointed) Office Manager. If the Listing Agent fails to correct a violation, the Office Manager or Broker of Record is subject to a citation and fine for failing to correct the subject violation under rule 14.4(c). To avoid a citation, please make sure to follow up directly with Listing Agents regarding communications from CRMLS Compliance (such as warnings or citations) and about any violations that might not have been corrected.

Compliance Quiz – Question of the Month
True or False: If the Warning notice that CRMLS emailed me went to my spam folder, that is grounds for Compliance to dismiss any Citations I received after not seeing the Warning notice.
False. Both Rule 12.22 and the End User License Agreement you signed when you joined CRMLS state that you must maintain a current, accurate, and active email address which CRMLS can use to contact you. If CRMLS sends notices to the email you have provided, it is your responsibility to properly monitor the email inbox and folders.
