Such a fine would be impossible for any agent using Quigler. The very FIRST Action in the FIRST Step in the Quigler transaction asks the agent if their signage is up to state law and the NAR CODE. This is how Quigler helps agents always stay on the right track.
Ace Inman News reporter Marian McPherson (who initially wrote about Quigler when we first launched) who covers these kinds of infractions, noted that the NAR Code of Ethics “require[s] agents to clearly disclose brokerage associations in all advertising and licensure information on their webpage and other marketing platforms.”
An anonymous tipster reported how the cited agent was marketing themselves on Facebook in a manner in violation of the Code and turned them in. There are 1.3M agents who could also have turned him in.
The agent cited for the infraction immediately changed the way the ad appeared and noted his brokerage affiliation as well as the proper licensure information, something QUIGLER reminds all agents to do. But he was out $450. Paying Quigler $298/yr would have prevented that infraction and many others. A perfect example of how Quigler keeps agents on the right track and provides tremendous value.
