|zipForm® SafeCall - Web Based Solution
You've heard the buzz about the new Federal Do-Not-Call rules and maybe even feel relieved that the government is finally doing something about the abuses of telemarketing firms that call every night at dinner time.
The bad news, however, is that those same rules also apply to the everyday business activities in the typical real estate office. Your agents' routine calls to FSBO's and expireds, past clients, and even responses to new inquiries can all trigger violations under the complex rules. And the penalty for even one violation is $11,000 per call!
The good news is that the government provides "safe harbor" protection for brokers that may allow you to escape penalty if one of your agents inadvertently calls a prohibited phone number.
