The session will discuss the rapidly changing real estate landscape from an industry perspective, while exploring the opportunities and challenges this creates for regulators to become more proactive in their endeavors to protect the public. We will expand our understanding of the framework in which MLSs and Associations operate and leverage this understanding to collaborate on initiatives that will create opportunity to move away from a reactive regulatory environment. We will look at what regulators can do today but we will also take a big leap forward and investigate hypothetical future environments that may or may not come to pass, but are sure to inspire some thought provoking conversation.
