BIG NEWS FROM FREC - The Division of Real Estate has updated the Broker Change Notification process.

The updated process will notify the previous Broker, via email, when a Sales Associate has updated their license status with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to another Real Estate Brokerage. The change is now live in the system and brokers should soon start to receive emails.
For questions regarding these updates related to Broker Change Notifications, please visit or contact the Division of Real Estate at 850-487-1395.

Many thanks to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Florida Real Estate Commission, and Division of Real Estate for this change.


DOJ Information on ADA Website Accessibility

    • The DOJ does not provide a regulation setting out detailed standards, but has a new webpage with information about how state and local governments (entities covered by ADA Title II) and businesses open to the public (entities covered by ADA Title III) can use existing standards to make their websites accessible to people with disabilities in line with the ADA’s requirements.  
    • In the absence of a formal regulation, businesses will have flexibility in how they comply with the ADA’s general requirements of nondiscrimination and effective communication, but they must comply with the ADA’s requirements.
    • NAR continues to recommend that real estate professionals work with their website vendors to conduct accessibility audits of their business websites to identify and address accessibility deficiencies.  
    • Existing technical standards provide helpful guidance concerning how to ensure accessibility of website features.
    • These include the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the Section 508 Standards, which the federal government uses for its own websites.  
    • In the meantime, NAR will continue to advocate that the DOJ issues a regulation that provides clear standards that take into consideration the challenges for businesses that develop and maintain accessible websites.
    • NAR has two Windows to the Law videos that give a brief overview of the issue:
