Ohio REALTORS Vice President, Legal Services
April 19, 2018; $19
Are you a member of a team or thinking of forming one? Or, are you a broker or manager who has agents who work as a team? Teams have become a very successful business model, allowing agents to pool their resources and tap into the skills and experience of fellow licensees to not only expand their business and client base, but to also assure that client needs are being met. However, there are some specific license law and other legal considerations that team members--and the brokers and managers who supervise them--need to know to avoid disciplinary action and other potential legal issues. In this webinar you’ll learn the do’s and don’ts with respect to the options for structuring your team, compensation issues, team advertising, potential agency conflicts within the team and more!

Handling Multiple Offers Without Losing Your Mind…Or Your License
Peg Ritenour, Ohio REALTORS, VP of Legal Services; July 2017; $19
Ohio REALTORS Legal Counsel Peg Ritenour delivers in this exciting recorded webinar on handling multiple offers without losing your mind...or your license!
This unique recorded webinar features:
Today's market is crazy! Low interest rates combined with low inventory levels has resulted in an increasing number of buyers competing for the same limited number of properties. One broker reported receiving 60 offers on a listing in two days!! While this may seem great for sellers, it can be overwhelming for listing agents and the seller. It is also leaving anxious buyers frustrated and upset at losing out on their dream house.
Moreover, many REALTORS are having to deal with fast paced negotiations and are unsure how to handle multiple offer situations properly, especially when representing multiple buyers. Ohio license law, the Code of Ethics, the MLS rules and contract law all play a part in how multiple offers must be handled. From disclosing multiple offers, to acceleration clauses and signature issues, this jam packed webinar will give you the foundation you need to deal with the issues involved in representing your clients in today's crazy market.

Peg Ritenour, Ohio REALTORS, VP of Legal Services; March 2017; FREE
On April 6, 2017, OAR’s major legislative initiative, HB 532 became effective. As a broker, will you take on the new role of “principal broker” for your brokerage? If so, it’s crucial for you to understand the duties that will come with this position. HB 532 also provides new opportunities included in HB 532 for a brokerage to use additional business names and for a broker to run more than one company. Moreover, you will learn about the expanded educational requirements for brokers, managers and newly licensed agents and when those become effective. Finally, all REALTORS will now need to comply with new procedures for buyers agents who write offers on the same property from multiple buyers. This webinar will breakdown exactly how to handle this situation without violating your agency obligations under the license law.
