The ActiveRain Community Guidelines
Respect the Real Estate Community
The ActiveRain Guidelines are a key component of our network, something that every member should be aware of and adhere to. As part of the blogging challenge hosted by Lynn Friedman, participants are to write 24 articles by the end of January, one of which must be about the AR Guidelines.
This makes so much sense since these Guidelines help structure what the AR network is all about and how members are to act, amongst themselves and before the public eye, and is a good reminder for those who might not be familiar with them nor taken time to read them. When was the last time YOU read them?!
We are a huge network of real estate professionals in all aspects of the industry from around the country and Canada. Members are the face of the real estate business, for each other, but more importantly for consumers who read articles they find here directly or through their Internet searches.
Real estate is a very visible business, when you consider the number of homes that are sold each year and the number of people involved in real estate transactions. Indeed, the real estate industry is a vital, impactful component of our economy, and as such is often on the forefront of media reporting, government action and legislation, and criticism.
Respect for each other and for the real estate community at large is essential, in our daily practices, as well as on this public forum.
A tremendous opportunity exists for all members to increase the professional standards, business practices, and perception in the real estate industry by our online conduct, and the information we share with each other and with consumers.
