Ncjar.GlobalRESummit.Nov5 61Thank you to all who registered and those who attended the Global Real Estate Summit 2020, “A Global Voyage into Local Business,” hosted by NCJAR and a host of other associations in the Tri-State Area. We hope you enjoyed the Two-Day Session of speakers and panelists, and power sessions.

MagnussonWhen listing an estate property and a need to remove and potentially sell personal property, you may want to call in the experts. Lori Fedkenheuer, NCJAR Affiliate of the Magnusson Group, helps Realtors® get their listings in marketable condition. The process often begins with the appraisal of art, antiques, jewelry, luxury goods, and home furnishings and concludes with a broom-swept home ready for its new owner. Utilizing a combination of auction, gallery, private sale, and "Estate" Sale methods, Magnusson connects their loyal buyers with their clients' vetted collections.  

Like so many small businesses around the country, The Magnusson Group found itself adapting to a new standard of professional practices in the age of COVID-19. Their goal was to remain efficient and safe while providing the highest level of quality service to their trusted clients and customers. As an industry leader, they were motivated by both creativity and sustainability while maintaining COVID-19 protocols. Taking cues from the current landscape, they embraced technology to reinvigorate their repertoire. They augmented their online presence in the form of sales (both estate and auction), virtual appraisals, and virtual consignments. They have not looked back, and business continues to boom both on and offline.

New code of ethics standard of practiceNAR’s Board of Directors strengthened REALTORS®’ commitment to upholding fair housing ideals, approving a series of recommendations from NAR’s Professional Standards Committee that extend the application of Article 10 of the Code of Ethics to discriminatory speech and conduct outside of members’ real estate practices.

Article 10 prohibits REALTORS® from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity in the provision of professional services and in employment practices. The Board approved a new Standard of Practice under the Article, 10-5, that states, “REALTORS® must not use harassing speech, hate speech, epithets, or slurs” against members of those protected classes.
