The Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission…how they govern and their public mandate.

Hello and welcome to this week’s blog post. I’ve chosen the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission (also known as SREC) for today’s topic because of its direct impact on consumer satisfaction, both from the Buyer’s perspective as well as the Seller’s perspective. It oversees real estate transactions and ensures guidelines are adhered to throughout the province of Saskatchewan. Unfortunately, from my conversations with customers and clients it seems to me that there is little public knowledge about the important services that the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission provides. I hope to change that somewhat today or at least to create greater public awareness regarding the Commission. The Real Estate Ccommission is the “go to resource” when all other conflict resolution is unsuccessful.  Let’s dive in…

As taken from the official site…”The Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission is an independent, non-governmental agency, responsible for the regulation of the real estate industry. The Commission is mandated to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry members.”

Although the focus here was based on information regarding public interest, you will find plenty of other topics on the official site including “Hearing Decisions” that the Commission has been involved with over the previous three (3) years. Hopefully this has provided you with knowledge of a resource that you will find useful. In the mean time, stay tuned for the next weekly topic. Be sure to let me know if you have any other particular topics of interest you would like discussed. I will do my best to accommodate. In the mean time, information is power. Use it wisely. 🙂
