REALTOR® Safety

realtor safety program

Helping NAR members understand the risks they face through knowledge, awareness, and empowerment.

 About the REALTOR® Safety Program

Knowledge. Awareness. Empowerment. These are the core components of REALTOR® Safety. And helping our members understand the risks they face can mean the difference between life and death.

To help remind us to know the dangers we face every day, to be aware of our surroundings, and empower ourselves with precautions and preparations so that we can avoid risky situations, and as part of NAR's ongoing efforts to keep our members safe, we dedicate September to kick off safety efforts. This is just the start of our commitment to empowering our members. NAR has also developed REALTOR® Safety materials for use throughout year, including:

• New webinars on REALTOR® Safety, presented by industry experts.
• Quarterly safety messages focusing on seasonal tips for on the job and at home, sent to Associations and brokers to share with members.
• Expansion of client safety materials and resources

Customize Your Safety Strategy

Many of the materials provided here are meant for AEs and brokerage offices. However, you can develop your own safety strategy if you work in a smaller office. The full safety presentation can be broken out into three separate sessions, and you can add the banner ads, widgets and other content to your home page. Let other members know about the free webinars, videos, forms and more.

Horiike v. Coldwell Banker

Case Comment: Horiike v. Coldwell Banker - Reaffirming the Broker-Agent Relationship

Tom Jacobson

Tom Jacobson concentrates his practice on real estate and environmental matters throughout California and in Utah. During his career he has represented brokers, Associations of REALTORS", commercial landlords and developers. Tom is a graduate of the University of Utah College of Law. In addition to practicing full time, Tom is a certified instructor for Utah real estate continuing education.

 I.  INTRODUCTION

The California Supreme Court's (the "Court") review of Horiike v. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Company1 provoked substantial speculation and conjecture prior to the Court's decision, published November 21, 2016. Scholars and real estate professionals voiced their concerns about the repercussions of the anticipated decision.2  Depending on one's perspective, the decision was either a sign of relief or an unfortunate outcome. Despite considerable anticipation, in the end the Court did nothing more than reiterate existing law, leaving in place all of the advantages, drawbacks, conflicts, issues, and other labels affixed to California's dual agency balancing act.

Our colleague and learned member of our bat, Rafael Chodos, recently published in the Journalan excellent article on the perspective of the Horiike case.  Chodos emphasized that scholars may ask certain questions about the case, including why the Court even took the case given the direction of its decision and concurrence with the Court of Appeal. Chodos provided an insightful analysis of constructive fraud and fiduciary duty, and questioned why the Court did not address issues of constructive fraud.5 Chodos also provided an excellent analysis of dual agency and the inherent conflict of interest many lawyers perceive with the scheme adopted by the legislature.6 

In practice, attorneys who advise brokers, buyers, and sellers do not have the luxury of knowing what was in the minds of the Court justices.  Though there was much anticipation surrounding the outcome of the Horiike case and many who thought the days of dual agency might be over, the Court left the law of dual agency untouched and simply based its decision on existing law and precedent.  This article details the facts of the Horiike case and analyzes the Court's decision and its ramifications.
