COVID-19 | The QPAREB Suspends Open Houses - APCIQ - Site web

L’Île-des-Sœurs, March 23, 2020 — Acknowledging the position of government authorities and public health organizations in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB) considers it imperative to respect all directives put in place and to respect social distancing in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the protection of the health of our members and the population.

“To support the real estate banners and agencies in their communications, the QPAREB has removed all open houses earlier today from the Centris system and has disabled the function until further notice,” confirmed Julie Saucier, the Association’s President and CEO.

In this exceptional business context, the QPAREB reminded its members to continue using technological tools to provide alternative marketing strategies. The Association knows that it can count on their collaboration in this massive collective effort that is affecting our industry and the entire global economy.
