What Is Neighbourhood Watch?
Q. Why do I have to leave my email address and receive the listings by email? Why can’t I just see the information right now from this site?
A. Because the listings you are receiving are not available to the general public through any public access system. You are no longer getting Realtor.ca type information. You are getting the actual MLS listings directly from the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), and the Durham Region Association of Realtors (DRAR). The general public cannot access this information through any public access search.
Q. Why do you need my name and my address?
A. The neighbourhood watch feature is sending you everything that is FOR SALE, and that SELLS, within your community. Your address serves as the centre point for the search. Your name is required because this system is sending you listings, and SOLD price information that can only be made available to you, because you have requested it. The general public is not allowed to access the real MLS system and search it themselves. With Neighbourhood Watch, you are requesting information, and as an Whitby Real Estate Agent, Lisa is able to provide it to you as per your request.
Q. I often feel that if I leave my email address somewhere, I will start getting more spam, or junk mail that I don’t want. Will this happen?
Q. I really don’t have any plans on moving but I like this idea, and I do want to get the information. If I fill out this form is Lisa going to start bugging me? Or sending me stuff I don’t want? Or calling me?
A. Nope. She will simply send you what you have asked for. That’s it. No catch. No strings attached.
Q. If there’s no catch, and Lisa won’t try to solicit business from me, then why is she willing to provide this service?
A. Lisa is a Durham Region Real Estate agent with RE/MAX Rouge River and has an extensive knowledge of Whitby, Oshawa, Pickering, Ajax, and Clarington Real Estate, and she has been in the business for well over a decade. In that time, she has learned that providing a wide range of quality services will ultimately help her to expand her business. While she will not contact you, it is her hope that if for any reason you ever do decide that you would like to speak to a Local Real Estate agent, that you may consider contacting her. That’s all.
