Recent DRE Changes to License Renewal Requirements for 2023
Licensees with a renewal date of January 1, 2023, or later are required to take an Implicit Bias course and an Interactive Fair Housing course as part of their 45 hours of CE. Please note that: If the licensee has completed their 45 hours in 2022 with the former CE package and old coursework but their license isn’t required to be renewed until 2023, they will still be required to take these two new courses even if they already have taken the 45 required hours. Complete this form to add the new courses to your CE package. Also…
Code of Ethics Violators
In an effort to make ethics violations and the disciplinary process more transparent, C.A.R. is publishing the names of members who are found in violation of the Code of Ethics as well as summaries of the members’ unethical behavior.

MLS Rule Changes (12.15.1 & 12.15.2)
On January 3, 2023, the 12.15.1 and 12.15.2 MLS Rules & Regulation changes will go into effect. These changes are being made as recommended by C.A.R.
Rationale: The two rules conflict with the Model MLS Rule 11.16, as revised in October 2021, which requires MLSs to permit MLS Participants & Subscribers to share the listing broker’s offer of compensation in IDX and VOW displays, and supports greater transparency in sharing the offer of compensation.
