Don't Be a Target for Harassment or Stalking

Real estate professionals have been victims of harassment or stalking behavior from clients and potential clients. Harassment occurs when a person subjects another to alarm by conveying a telephonic or written threat to inflict serious physical injury on that person or to commit a felony involving that person or their property. Stalking is when a person knowingly alarms or coerces another person or a member of that person’s family or household by engaging in REPEATED and UNWANTED contact with the other person.

FCC Approves Net Neutrality Rules

On Thursday, February 26 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved new "net neutrality" rules, which gives the Commission strong legal authority to regulate broadband providers more heavily than in the past and restrict their power to control download speeds on the web. The new rules ban Internet providers from blocking or slowing any traffic and from striking deals with content companies, known as paid prioritization, for smoother delivery of traffic to consumers. The new rules are a victory for consumers, and for REALTORS® who embrace technology and online resources to meet the needs of their clients.
