- Convention Discount: Because I am attending this meeting, all Allegiance Associates will receive half off the early bird registration fee for the 2012 RE/MAX Convention to be held in March in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay.

Kingstowne Office Closing We received an unsolicited offer from a neighboring tenant that we could not refuse and the Kingstowne office will close on Friday, May 6. Associates assigned to that office were informed earlier in the week. Staff affected by the closure will be reassigned to other duties. Other office closings are not anticipated.

Are You on MARS? Working with short sales? You’ll want to read about the new the Mortgage Assistance Relief Services (MARS) Rule that took effect earlier this year. Depending on certain factors, the MARS rules may require you to make certain disclosures to consumers if you negotiate a short sale with a lender, advertise short sales experience, or take upfront fees from short sale sellers. This is important as the penalty for noncompliance is huge.

CRS Class So far, only a couple of you have registered for the CRS class to be held next month. Price goes up May 1 and, more importantly, we need a good sized group to hold the class. Waiting to register may result in the class being canceled. Click here for all the info and to sign up:
