RECO issues Public Advisory regarding RE/MAX Right Choice Inc.

On November 1, 2017, under the authority of the Real Estate Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA), the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) issued a Freeze Order, freezing bank accounts of:

RE/MAX Right Choice Inc., of 6464 Yonge St #250, Toronto, ON M2M 3X4.

Freeze Orders are invoked by RECO against brokerages when required to prevent funds from being withdrawn from a brokerage’s accounts in order to protect consumer deposits.

Additional action may be taken and information will be made available through RECO’s website.
