February Division Highlights #2

New Instructor Seminars

Due to high demand, several new instructor seminars were created and added to the schedule.  These seminars will be offered in 2 formats until May: in person every other month, and by zoom. More seminars will be available in July and/or August, after the license renewal period has ended.  If you have an interest in becoming a real estate instructor and meet the requirements, you may register for this course.

Property Manager Concerns

The NCREC sometimes receives calls about private owners managing their own property, and concerns that they are not following Landlord/Tenant Laws.  While the NCREC cannot regulate the actions of a private property owner that does not have a real estate license, owners are still subject to following NC and Federal Laws concerning Fair Housing and Landlord and Tenant responsibilities.  If you have a concern about the actions of an unlicensed property owner managing their own property, you should contact the Attorney General’s office for assistance.

You are invited!

The monthly Real Estate Commission meetings are always open to the public, and you are invited to attend in person or online via Zoom.  The meeting next month is March 15th here at the Commission building.  A Zoom link will be available at on the day of the meeting.

Opioid Crisis

We are partnering to support More Powerful NC, a public education campaign that launches this week to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic and empower North Carolinians to take action to address the crisis in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities.

The More Powerful NC campaign is supported by a coalition of North Carolina businesses, healthcare organizations, and state agencies that helped create, fund, and provide resources for this campaign, which was initiated by Attorney General Josh Stein and DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen.

The campaign website,, helps people understand the risks associated with opioids and provides treatment and recovery resources. The website also gives people a wide range of tools and ideas to get involved in their communities and be part of our work to confront the epidemic.

We hope that you will take the time to visit the More Powerful NC website, take the pledge to take action, and share the campaign website with friends and family. You can also share the social media post below to help others learn about the campaign (and don’t forget to use the hashtag #MorePowerfulNC).

The only way we can combat this epidemic is if we all step up and do our part. Together, we are stronger than the opioid crisis.
