I invite you to give us your input and your criticism to keep us on our toes

Welcome to the December issue of REM, our last one for 2009, the celebration year of our 20th anniversary of publishing. We made a deliberate decision to not mark this anniversary with balloons and hoopla but rather to work harder and make an even greater effort to be the place for the Canadian real estate community to turn to for news and information on their industry.

Heaven knows we have to work harder because new avenues of information are rolled out seemingly every week, all claiming to carry industry news, delivered in blogs, twits and websites that declare authority. Established radio, television and newspaper outlets are getting into the act by telling you they have the story, and then walking away from the same story the next day if they find it is wrong. We will stay on course by confirming our facts and checking the accuracy of the stories we follow.

So here is a truth. You’re likely not going to get instant breaking news from the print version of REM, but you will continue to get detailed news and opinion from sources that are reliable and authoritative. As we have promised from the beginning, you’ll get information that you can’t find anywhere else.

Here is a second truth. On our new website at www.remonline.com, you now have more opportunity than ever to take part in the REM community. Now you can leave comments after every news story or column, or start your own topic in the expanded REM Forum. I invite you to give us your input and your criticism to keep us on our toes and help us discuss the wide range of concerns related to the business we all work in.

It seems to me that this is the single most important change in media in the last few years. It is now a two-way street.

People who write in message boards often break the news. People who respond to stories by reporters are often those who provoke the most thought. People who participate in media news sites are the ones who challenge information. People who are online debate the facts and show the other side. People on the Internet can quell fears and generate new thoughts and ideas.

The challenge is to sift through the claims of news for the truth. The challenge is to follow up with research and fact finding and then deliver it.

That is where we come in and that is where we will be. We pledge to provide you true information and news in all the pages preceding this one.

REMonline will also have more news about the real estate community such as upcoming events, milestones and achievements from industry members and new office openings and closings.

We are going to try harder through 2010 to maintain REM as the best place to turn for news and opinion about the real estate industry in Canada.

I thank you again for 20 years of publishing and on behalf of everyone at REM I promise you we will not waver from delivering stories to you every month in REM that are important to the industry and relevant to you.

Heino hedshotMerry Christmas. I wish you a safe and happy holiday season with family and friends.
