The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) recently launched MyRECO Certificate, a mobile app that allows Ontario’s real estate professionals to display their registration certificate on their mobile device, in real time.
“The industry has expressed a desire for a convenient registration certificate that can withstand wear and tear and the app addresses that,” says registrar Joseph Richer. “It’s part of RECO’s ongoing effort to leverage technology to offer useful digital services to registrants.”
The app is currently available for Apple, Android and BlackBerry Z10 devices. To download, visit the Apple App store on your Apple device, the Google Play store on your Android device or BlackBerry World on your Z10 device and search for “MyRECO Certificate.” The app is free.
Once downloaded, registrants can pull up a real-time version of their RECO registration certificate anytime they are connected to the Internet or keep a date-stamped copy stored for offline use.
The paper certificate is still a valid form of proof of registration, says Richer, and RECO will continue to issue paper registration certificates.
