UPDATE: David Schooley has been elected to the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) Board of Directors and will begin his term on June 30, 2020. He would like to congratulate his fellow successful nominees and thank his colleagues for their generous support.


My name is David Schooley and I’m running in the RECO Board of Directors election in Zone 2. I am a full-time Broker with RE/MAX Twin City and have been practicing in Waterloo Region for 16 years. As a REALTOR®, I am fiercely protective of our professional standards. 

I believe:

• Working in this industry is a privilege, not a right

• Changes to the Trust in Real Estate Act (TRESA) are an important first step in restoring our trust in RECO and the public’s trust in us as registrants

• With more registrants chasing fewer transactions, our industry is evolving and not always in a good way 

• Updated education from RECO needs to be expedited as “click until you get it” doesn’t meet the standards we require

• We should take immediate action on violations that have, or will, impact consumers

• We need to deal with all complaints in a timely manner, with the most severe offences taking priority

• We need a “whistleblower” policy that allows REALTORS® to address professional concerns without jeopardizing trading relationships

• Registrants who are unwilling to comply with the Code of Ethics cannot be left in a position of public trust

• Statistically, our industry has an exemplary ethical record, but it’s easily tarnished when violations make front page news

I am asking for your support in the upcoming RECO Board of Directors election for Zone 2 and hope that you will take the opportunity to vote March 9-23. Here’s the link:

With thanks,
