Without Congressional action by September 30, 2017, authority for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire.  If the NFIP lapses, more than 40,000 real estate transactions per month will be in jeopardy.

Take Action.png

Urge your member of Congress to pass “The 21st Century Flood Reform Act” H.R. 2874 as soon as possible.

H.R. 2874 contains numerous provisions of critical importance to consumers and REALTORS:

  • Reauthorizes NFIP for a full 5 years, avoiding the uncertainty of short term extensions and potential shutdowns
  • Caps NFIP rates at $10,000 per year for property owners
  • Directs FEMA to develop more granular rate tables, to ensure fewer properties are over charged by NFIP
  • Sets aside $1 billion for flood mitigation assistance grants
  • Increases access to private market flood insurance

Tell Congress to PASS Flood Insurance Reform Now!

Medina County Board of REALTORS®

Improve, Invest in Community with REALTOR®

Party Grants

With nearly 800 members keeping their ears to the ground, the Medina County Board of REALTORS® (MCBOR)

never has to wonder what the needs of the community might be. In 2016, it met three such needs with funding

assistance from the REALTOR® Party’s Housing Opportunity Grants and a Placemaking Grant. Ranging from

housing for disabled veterans, to vegetable gardens for low-income citizens, to improving a bike path for the public, these projects demonstrate the deep level of investment these MCBOR REALTOR® professionals have in their community. 

Sherry Stell, MCBOR's Association Executive, explains that her organization has strong Housing Opportunity

and Legislative Committees, but that its community service issues emerge organically, without any systematic

approach. "If the need is there, members will call it to our attention, and we'll try to find out if it is possible to obtain a grant

within the REALTOR® Party program," said Stell. For example, a MCBOR committee member who serves as a

trustee of one of Medina County's townships recognized an opportunity for the REALTORS® to contribute to

public fitness when a former golf course in his township was being converted to a public park and required

funding to transform golf cart paths to mountain bike paths.  The Placemaking Grant program does not fund

repair work on existing paths, but this fall, MCBOR succeeded in securing a $1,300 grant for a park map and

information display case branded with the Medina County Board of REALTOR®S name and REALTOR® logo,

along with a "Saddle Buddy" mountain bike repair and cleaning station.

Another significant community service project for MCBOR came about when one of its members handled the

sale of a property to an organization that planned to convert the home to housing for disabled veterans requiring

round-the-clock care. "That's how we found out about Newbridge Veterans Place," says Stell. "Our membership

is more than happy to support our veterans.  Newbridge Veterans Place became the beneficiary of our Annual

Charity Bowl-a-Thon, which attracted more than 140 participants and raised more than $3,000." Along with a

$5,000 NAR Housing Opportunity Grant and three REALTOR® Care Days, MCBOR volunteers donated their

time and skill to help the organization get the property up and running. "So much was needed in this seven-bedroom

home to get it ready to house low income/homeless and disabled veterans," notes Stell. "Our members helped

with painting, hanging blinds and setting up the kitchen, in addition to purchasing and moving furniture into the home." 

Yet another project arose because of MCBOR's longstanding support of Medina Creative Housing, an organization that promotes the development and management of permanent affordable housing for people with disabilities. In the past, the REALTORS® have received a REALTOR® Party Housing Opportunity Grant to support the programmatic goals

of the charity's Life Skills Lodge as a comprehensive occupational therapy environment. "This year," reports Stell, "they wanted help installing raised garden beds, to help residents to grow their own produce and sell the

excess at the farmers’ market for income. Our community is so fortunate to have this amazing organization,

and this project, in particular, helps the broader population by providing fresh locally grown vegetables.

It's a real win-win."

On a hot day this summer, a team of MCBOR members got together and met at the site to build the garden

beds, with materials paid for by a Placemaking Grant. As always, Stell put the word out among her affiliate

members, who not only pitched in to help, but provided coffee, donuts and pizza. "Our members are very supportive of each other

in these efforts," she adds, "whether it's with hard labor or coffee service.  Knowing that the REALTOR® Party

is behind them with all its resources, makes all of us feel like we really can make a difference when these needs arise."

Image result for ethics 

The National Association of REALTORS® Ethics course requirement has changed from a 4 year cycle to a 2 year cycle.  What this means is that all REALTORS® must complete at least 2.5 hours of ethics training (NAR Code of Ethics) in 2017 or 2018.

This is a separate requirement than the 3 hours of Ethics that you must take for your license renewal.  This is an NAR requirement.

The next deadline is December 30, 2018.

Medina County Board of REALTORS® will accept any ethics course that has been approved by the Ohio Division of Real Estate that satisfies the state of Ohio ethics course requirement for continuing education credit.

If you take either the Medina County Board of REALTORS® New Member Orientation ethics course and/or a Medina County Board of REALTORS® sponsored ethics course in 2017 or 2018, you don't have to do anything. We have a record of your attendance and will submit it to NAR.

However, if you take an ethics course somewhere else, please email a copy of your certificate of completion to Cathy DeMusz,
