Broker Communication Preference Form:

At MREA, we are committed to providing you with timely and relevant information. While it is our policy to keep all members informed of important industry updates, we understand that certain updates are better directed to real estate brokers who in turn may prefer to share them with their real estate salespeople.

To ensure effective communication, MREA sends these types of communications exclusively to real estate brokers. We regularly update our brokers list using The Manitoba Securities Commission's registration list.

We acknowledge that each brokerage is unique, and there may be situations where you would like to designate associate brokers to receive these communications as well.

In order to accommodate your specific communication requirements, we kindly request that you indicate your preferences for non-RLE broker notices by choosing one of the following options:
1. Real Estate Broker Only
2. Real Estate Broker and designated Real Estate Associate Brokers
3. Real Estate Associate Broker Only

If you require any further information or have any concerns, please contact the MREA at 204.772.0405 or email us directly at mail@mrea.mb.ca
