July 15th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

Members of the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) and the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) were recently recognized for their leadership and participation in the Realtor-Builder Accord.

The accord is an agreement for all parties involved in the purchase of a new construction home to conduct business with the highest of ethical standards. The Realtor-Builder Accord has been signed by the following NEFBA members:

  • Landon Homes
  • Riverside Homes
  • Matovina & Company
  • Dreambuilder Custom Homes
  • Southern Lifestyle Homes
  • Mercedes Premier Homes
  • Dostie Homes
  • Bourre Construction Group
  • DreamFinders Homes
  • Cornerstone Homes

The Realtor-Builder Accord was also signed by the following Northeast Florida Realtors:

  • Prudential Network Realty
  • Watson Realty Company
  • Coldwell Banker Vanguard
  • Benchmark Brokers Inc.
  • Traditions Realty Group
  • Davidson Realty
  • Beaches Realty
  • Exit Real Estate Gallery
  • RE/MAX
  • The Legends of Real Estate

“Professionals in our industry are known for working together with respect and professionalism to achieve a common goal,” said NEFBA President Dennis Ginder. “We want home buyers to know they will receive the utmost integrity and responsibility when working with a Realtor and builder participating under this accord.”

The accord commits both parties to transparent, consumer-friendly actions in such areas as roles and responsibilities, compensation and communication guidelines that govern the exchange of information between the Realtor and the builder’s representatives. Under the accord, both the builder and Realtor are vested in providing the buyer with transparency, ensuring the lines of communication are open and respect is shown among all parties involved.

The accord was developed by task force that included representatives of both associations. The idea for the project developed following a presentation by motivational speaker Bill Webb to the NEFBA board in March 2011. The first accord was signed in June 2012. The two Northeast Florida industry associations are the first in the state to formalize and sign this type of agreement.

“Our accord has set a standard that will benefit the homebuilding industry,” Ginder said. “Most importantly, this agreement will give peace of mind to prospective home buyers for years to come.”
