Realtors Association of Palm Beaches

BeachesMLS Compliance Team─Dedicated to helping you sell faster!

The MLS is the most powerful tool for selling your listings or finding the perfect properties for your clients. The effectiveness, however, depends on how clearly you and fellow REALTORS® input the listing data. Thank you to all of the volunteer REALTORS® who worked tirelessly to create our BeachesMLS rules, regulations and compliance guidelines to mirror NAR® professional standards.

With these new guidelines in place, our BeachesMLS team can fulfill our dedication to helping YOU sell faster through accurate MLS data input. Since our official enforcement date of March 31, 2014, our clean data stewards have implemented and will continue to implement iCheck MLS courtesy notices to inform you of potential notices.

Rules, Regulations and Compliance Guidelines

The following BeachesMLS Rules, Regulations and Compliance Guidelines and its amendments have been approved by NAR.

BMLS Chairman Donn Wonderling speaks about the new rules.

Automatic Fines for Conduct Violations

Conduct violations refer to how an agent conducts their business; such as advertising another agent’s listing without their permission.

  • Most of these are situational rather than data related and reported by other agents.
  • The violating agent and broker then receive a notice with an automatic fine and are given the opportunity to request a hearing to dispute the violation.
  • Requesting a hearing is new, this opportunity was not previously available.
