Dear Sirs,

Our industry is extremely competitive thus the large numbers of licensees who do not make it in this business. We are also a cooperative group who assist our clients and customers via the MLS system for a win-win for all parties involved

Lastly, the new ILS policy. It works for consumers because it gives home sellers a choice whether to permit marketing of their property on the Internet and in selecting an MLS member with whom they want to work. It allows them to "opt-in" and have their property displayed on other brokers' Web sites even if they are working with a broker who does not participate in sharing his listings for display by his competitors. And it works for REALTORS® because it gives us the right to control where our listings are displayed on the Internet.

Appreciate your time and ask that you allow our industry to thrive and service the general public.

Regards,

Cecil Duarte - Broker, ABR, CRS, e-PRO, GRI
