September is REALTOR® Safety Month, and with the ups and downs of the last year, the importance of keeping safety at the forefront of your mind is clear. Join former police officer and 35-year REALTOR® veteran, Janet Judd, as she details why safety matters and how implementing safety best practices is not only good for you, but ultimately good for your business.
REALTORS® encounter job-related risks every day. Whether you are new to the industry, or a seasoned REALTOR®, it is easy to miss warning signs or become complacent in your practices. Learn proven tactics on how to spot danger and how to navigate dangerous situations and key takeaways that you can share with friends, family, clients, and co-workers.
Join us the following day in this two-part session to continue the conversation. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, speak about your experiences, and hear stories from fellow REALTORS®. All are encouraged to participate in this interactive and open conversation about REALTOR® danger zones.
Follow The Code: Commission Disputes
Don’t assume Realtors® can arbitrate all commission disputes.
Article 17 defines an “arbitrable issue” as a contractual dispute between Realtor® Principals (Brokers) of different firms.
Have you arranged for a referral commission to be paid without the signature/acceptance of the brokers on an agreement? If not, an arbitration request would probably be dismissed by the Grievance Committee for lack of a contractual relationship.
The recent flooding has been nothing short of devastating for a long list of local businesses, schools, and homeowners across Essex County. FEMA has added Essex County to the official declaration list. Now, those in Essex County who suffered damage to their homes or businesses in Hurricane Ida are now eligible for emergency federal relief funds.
Counties in New Jersey declared for FEMA disaster relief: Union, Essex, Passaic, Hudson, Bergen, Hunterdon, Somerset, Middlesex and Gloucester.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority approved an emergency grant program for small businesses — those with up to 50 employees — impacted last week by the remains of Hurricane Ida, and for businesses impacted by Tropical Storm Henri.

Follow the Code: Listing Photos
Don’t copy other Realtors® information. Don’t copy anyone’s information. Don’t use Google images.
Everyone knows using images from another Realtor’s® listing without permission is a violation of the Code. If you find an image of the property on Google chances are great that it was associated with a listing of the property. Utilizing certain Google images may be ok with them for personal use. However, Google does not allow commercial use. You could be getting yourself in legal trouble or possibly be in violation of Article 12.
