E

very September is dedicated to REALTOR® safety efforts. Like countless other professions that require public interaction, the real estate industry involves some risk. Our goal is to help educate our members on the significance of safety procedures and the precautions that should be made. As a REALTOR®, it’s important to have a personal safety protocol in place that you use when meeting new clients, showing properties or sharing information online. Although the month of September has been designated as REALTOR® Safety Month, it’s important to practice these safety precautions and preparations year-round. By educating our REALTORS® about potential threats and providing you with resources to protect yourselves, GTR hopes to keep our REALTORS® safe. On page 10 you can discover ways to combat common real estate threats. Make sure you take our REALTOR® Safety Personality quiz on page 13 and see which superhero you are most like. This issue, we also want to highlight our foundation and the wonderful work they do. The REALTORS® Care Foundation of GTR is a charitable organization that provides educational housing programs and services. You can learn more about

the programs offered through this foundation on page 27. And, as a friendly reminder, your membership dues renewal deadline is November 30.

Use your realtor® safety superpowers

Physical THREATS

villain profile

STRENGTHS: They may be intimidating, physically strong and may even team up with another villain to overtake you when you lease expect it. WEAKNESSES: Just because they may be bigger or stronger doesn’t mean they have the power to defeat you. realtor® defense: Super -human strength

Harness your own physical strength by taking a self-defense class. Not only will you learn some new moves that could help you in a bind, but you will build your confidence in your ability to protect yourself.

environmental THREATS

villain profile

STRENGTHS: Whether a storm, flash flooding, wildfires or red tide, environmental threats have a way of destroying homes and negatively impacting the real estate market. WEAKNESSES: None realtor® defense: Preparation

Be prepared to endure seasonal environmental challenges that may come your way and threaten your livelihood. Simple things like making a hurricane preparedness kit and logging information on your valuables will go a long way in keeping you protected in the event of a natural disaster!

TAMPA REALTOR® • September - October 2018


Imposters/scammers

villain profile

STRENGTHS: Imposters can appear to be friendly and make you believe that they are serious about doing business with you. Scammers will feed off your reactions to get valuable information from you. WEAKNESSES: It’s possible to discover their true motives by doing a simple investigation into their stories or credentials. realtor® defense: X-Ray Vision

If something seems suspicious about a particular person, don’t be afraid to look into their background or ask probing questions to find the truth.

CYBERSECURITY THREATS villain profile

STRENGTHS: They can take many forms including identity theft, wire fraud, phishing, ransomware, viruses, malware and more! WEAKNESSES: There are dozens of resources available to help protect REALTORS® and their clients from falling victim to their attacks. realtor® defense: invisibility

In this age of digital transparency, it can be easy to overshare private details online. To protect against cybersecurity threats, its important to limit the amount and type of personal info you share on the web. According to NAR, you should consider advertising without your photo or using your office address/phone number instead of your personal one. To protect your sellers, advise them not to leave sensitive information, like bills and other mail, where they

can be easily accessed by prospective buyers during open houses.

*Bonus tip: GET A Sidekick!

At least one person you trust should know the details on your location, destination, who you’re meeting with & expected time home in case you run into trouble.

LEGAL FAQs

CODE OF ETHICS Advantage Gained Through Deception of Client

C

lient X listed his unique parcel of land on a lake exclusively with REALTOR® A, who worked diligently for months to sell Client X’s property. Finally, Realtor® A came up with the idea of selling the property to the county for a park, and made arrangements for its presentation at a special meeting.

Client X went before the County Commissioners with his attorney. REALTOR® A, the listing broker, was in the audience. REALTOR® A commented about the property and told the County Commissioners that if the County purchased the property he, REALTOR® A, would receive a real estate commission. The County Commissioners agreed to take the matter under advisement. REALTOR® B, a member of the County Commission, approached Client X and suggested that if the property were listed with REALTOR® B exclusively, and REALTOR® B then cooperated with REALTOR® A so that the real estate commission would be split between them, the County would probably purchase the property from Client X. Otherwise, REALTOR® B indicated, the County would not purchase it. Unknown to Client X, the County Commissioners had already voted to buy the land. Worried that he might not sell the land, Client X immediately signed a second written exclusive listing with REALTOR® B. Thereafter, a sales contract was executed which provided that the real estate commission was to be divided equally between REALTOR® A and REALTOR® B. Unknown to REALTOR® B, Client X had told REALTOR® A the entire story about REALTOR® B’s

approach to and conversation with Client X. REALTOR® A filed a complaint against REALTOR® B alleging violations of Article 1 and Article 16. The Grievance Committee found enough evidence of REALTOR® B’s alleged violations of the Code to warrant a hearing before a Hearing Panel of the Board’s Professional Standards Committee. At the hearing, REALTOR® B defended himself, indicating that he had been instrumental in influencing the County Commission to vote to buy Client X’s land, and had voted for it himself. Accordingly, REALTOR® B felt it was appropriate for him to receive a commission. It was the Hearing Panel’s conclusion that REALTOR® B had used his official position as County Commissioner to deceive Client X with respect to the prospects of the County purchasing his property, and had coerced Client X into executing an exclusive listing while the property was already listed exclusively with REALTOR® A. The Hearing Panel found REALTOR® B in violation of Article 1 for having advised Client X dishonestly and Article 16 for having acted inconsistently with the exclusive relationship that existed between Client X and REALTOR® A.

Q: I heard the commercial lien law will let me put a lien on the owner’s property for my commission. Is this true? A: No. The lien attaches only to the owner’s net proceeds and not to any interest in real property.

Q: I just received a copy of an appraisal in which the appraiser didn’t analyze prior sales of the subject property. Aren’t appraisers required to analyze prior sales? A: Yes. Standards Rule 1-5, USPAP, states that when the value opinion to be developed is market value, an appraiser must analyze all available agreements of sale, options and listings of the subject property current as of the effective date of the appraisal and analyze all sales of the subject property that occurred within the three years prior to the effective date of the appraisal.

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

YPNDEN

First Annual Blue Party

On September 13, the Young Professionals Network of GTR organized a fabulous celebration for REALTORS® of all ages! For those of you that attended, you were able to meet and network with incredible REALTORS®, the leadership of GTR and the amazing Affiliates and sponsors that make these events possible. As the party got underway, we heard about the people that have had the vision and commitment to create the programs and education events that YPN has provided to our members. We were also inspired by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Frank D. Murphy (also founder of the Mentoring with Purpose Charity), who shared the life experiences that allowed him to find his true “WHY” and gave us some direction on understanding and evaluating our own “WHY.” Three key points he made were: • Be in position: Are you in the right position to succeed? • Put down your fake ID: Are you acting instead of being your genuine, authentic self? • Lead with compassion: Understand that people are dealing with challenges that we do not even know about.

want to wait for the next Blue Party, please save the date for the YPN Ugly Sweater Holiday Party on December 13. Stay tuned for more details. Thank you again to our GTR team, the Blue Party planning team and the Blue Party sponsors for making this evening possible. Debbie Prescott (North American Title) & LaShawn Milton (Realnet Florida Real Estate) are members of the 2018 YPN Advisory Board. Find us on Facebook & Instagram @TampaYPN

The food was delicious, the beverages flowed, selfies were abundant and the music was energizing! We now know which members are the best dancers and we shared some fabulous blue apparel.

TAMPA REALTOR® • September - October 2018

Advocacy is critical to the real estate industry. We advocate for our profession on the local, state and national levels by taking positions on issues affecting real estate. Our Governmental Affairs Committee also recommends candidates for office who are in alignment with REALTOR® views. The voice of a 1.3-million-member organization that fights for private property rights is incredibly powerful. Investing in RPAC is what I like to call the cheapest insurance policy for your business. Educational opportunities are available to REALTOR® members at all levels. However, education is at the center of GTR’s core values. We are committed to providing all REALTOR® members with top-notch education and brilliant instructors, at the lowest cost to the member. GTR listens to the market and membership and responds with over 400 educational sessions and events to meet YOUR needs.  These benefits are not exclusive to Tampa REALTORS®. Our membership expands into our surrounding communities and counties. The GTR Board of Directors began a Pasco initiative in 2018 which includes classes with quality instructors, events and even a full-time service center in Wesley Chapel. With over 3,000 members in northern Hillsborough and Pasco counties, it is GTR’s top priority to bring our benefits and services to the area. In 2019, our members in the Tampa/Pasco area will continue to see events and educational opportunities, and we will also focus on bringing benefits to our Brandon/Riverview members.  GTR is one of the largest shareholders of My Florida Regional (MFR) MLS, where it maintains a strong voice to provide members with benefits and platforms to grow their business. MFR and GTR members work together to increase the value of your MLS and create additional userfriendly technology.  Thanks to our leadership, volunteers and members just like you, we are actively working to make Greater Tampa REALTORS® even greater! Grace Smith, RCE is the Member Engagement Director at Greater Tampa REALTORS®. For more information on member benefits, you can email her at Grace@TampaRealtors.org.

INVESTING IN RPAC

REALTORS® PAC Working to protect your business

20

TAMPA REALTOR® • September - October 2018


WHAT IS RPAC?

RPAC stands for REALTORS® Political Action Committee. RPAC is the lobbying/political arm of the National Association of REALTORS® and Florida REALTORS®.

WHY DO WE HAVE RPAC?

It is imperative that we have a mechanism to express our views throughout all levels of government. RPAC serves as this mechanism. RPAC uses its financial resources to support candidates who both understand and support REALTOR® issues. RPAC looks to build the future by putting dollars in places that will help advance the interests of real estate professionals. RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS® and run by REALTORS®. RPAC exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS®. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?

RPAC is one of the largest and most effective political action committees in the country and has been instrumental in promoting favorable legislation that would benefit our communities and our careers. RPAC also plays a major role in the election of officials who stand with REALTORS®, regardless of party affiliation. Our legislative allies are members of the REALTOR® Party. The REALTOR® Party supports the issues that are important to your business as a REALTOR®, regardless of political party affiliation. During the 113th Congress, NAR’s legislative and regulatory agenda continued to focus on creating a fundamentally sound and robust U.S. real estate market while protecting the business interests of members, as well as consumers. Despite Congress’ lack of actions, NAR achieved several accomplishments and set the foundation for many important issues moving forward. RPAC was the largest contributor to candidates during the 2014 federal election cycle, disbursing roughly [$4.9 million] in direct contributions to federal candidates, Leadership Political Action Committees (PACs) and National Political Party Committees. Direct contributions made by RPAC were given to both Republican and Democratic candidates. Other successes include: • •

Businesses throughout Florida will save an additional $31 million each year due to the second reduction in the tax rate in as many years. $500,000 was allocated from the Professional Regulation Trust Fund to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to combat unlicensed

• • • • •

real estate activity. Strengthened the current flood insurance notice included in homeowner’s property insurance policy Allowed businesses to receive tax credits for a portion of the Business Rent Tax they pay, which will go toward certain scholarship funds Will extend the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) requirement to lenders making residential mortgage loans for business purposes. Affordable housing programs received close to $110 million from the state and local government housing trust funds. Several REALTORS® and a former Florida REALTORS® staff member have officially been appointed to the Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board (FREAB) and the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC).

Although the National Association of REALTORS® doesn’t lobby local governments, the national association does provide funding and other resources to local and state REALTOR® associations for their advocacy outreach. The REALTOR® Action Center gives all REALTORS® who have a current, valid e-mail address or access to the Internet a fast and easy way to contact their members of Congress and present NAR’s legislative positions. In responding to NAR Calls for Action, REALTORS® can send letters to members of Congress on issues that matter to them and their clients with the click of a mouse.

WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST IN RPAC?

REALTOR® Advocacy and RPAC impacts your bottom line. Through RPAC efforts, REALTORS® and/or homeowners either increased their commissions or saved cash. REALTORS® must be politically active. If not, who will take on the responsibility of protecting our values and rights? If REALTORS® do not speak out, get involved and help shape the discussion, someone else will. No one knows a community better than a REALTOR®. REALTORS® know the lay of the land, the families, the best schools, the neighborhoods and the leaders of any given area. REALTORS® work in every city, county and community in the nation. REALTORS® are on the frontline as defenders of real estate issues.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

RPAC is an investment; your investment in your business. Join the group of REALTORS® and Affiliates who are committed to the preservation and improvement of our careers and livelihoods by investing in RPAC. Your 2019 dues invoice includes a line for a voluntary investment in RPAC that makes a diligent effort to ensure your local and state candidates are oriented to benefit your business and protect private property rights. To promote the strength of your profession, we strongly encourage you to include the voluntary investment in your payment. tamparealtors.org
