Both the California Desert Association of REALTORS® and the Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS® have agreed to change the FLEX MLS live date to Monday, September 16, 2019. While CDAR and FLEX are prepared for this change, our third party vendors have let us know that they will not be ready for the August 5th live date. As we want to ensure that both brokers' and agents' websites work as intended with IDX links when FLEX MLS goes live, we have decided to push back the live date to allow vendors additional time to be ready for this change.

You will continue to use Rapattoni for all of your day-to-day business and operations, including entering listings and updating contact information, until the new go live date.We will update you as we continue along this process, including the rollout schedule, upcoming FLEX trainings, and all other information you will need to know.

We thank you, our members, for your patience and understanding as we make the changeover to the FLEX MLS system as seamless as possible.

Ethics Deadline Was Dec. 31!

narethics 01

As many REALTOR® members are already aware, the National Association of REALTORS® is requiring all REALTOR® members to take their Code of Ethics training every two years. The deadline for the previous cycle was December 31, 2018. The new cycle runs from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020. If you did NOT complete your ethics by 2018 during the previous cycle, you still MUST do so or risk suspension of service or inactivation!

Whether you need to still take the ethics from last cycle or want to get an early start on the current cycle, it's easy: just take the requirement online! Click the link here and take the FREE online ethics course provided by the National Association of REALTORS® (to access, you must create an account with NAR if you have not done so already).

If you were unable to do so by the December 31, 2018 deadline, you MUST complete ethics NOW to avoid any suspension of service. For more information and a quick FAQ about the NAR Code of Ethics requirement, click the link here!

CA Wildfire Crisis

“We are in a crisis and need your help.” 

This is from an email we received from Ellie Rosebush, the association executive of the Oroville Association of REALTORS®, who lost her home in last week’s Northern California wildfire and had to be evacuated.

Last week’s wildfires in Northern and Southern California are now the deadliest in the state’s history. To date, the fires have destroyed thousands of structures, taken more than 60 lives and counting, and wiped away an entire town. Thousands of people have been displaced and are in need of a place to live, including many in the REALTOR® family. Several members have written us telling us how they barely escaped with their lives.

Through its Disaster Relief Fund, C.A.R. stands ready to help REALTOR® family members who have been impacted by these disasters. Grants provided by the fund are used to help members of the REALTOR® family -- REALTORS®, their staff, and Association members and their staff.
