Yes it’s stupid because you choose to punish all of the other members on leadership opinion without knowing their personal positions. Stupid.
Punishment? My position who I would list my beachfront property, now or in the future, is a consequence, not a punishment, of ECAR CEO Keith Dean and past and present President leadership policy on CU of my private property and Walton Realtors apparent acceptance of ECAR's CU position; except Scenic Sotheby brokers. I'd use Scenic Sotheby's brokers or a Bay County Realtor before I used a Walton Realtor who accepted ECAR leaderships CU positions.

Then why don’t the other members who agree that ECAR should not be taking a stand, for or against, simply pen their own letters to ECAR? Fear of reprisal?

Just to clarify, an agent can have their own personal opinion on CU - I have no problem with that. But to be associated with ECAR and not speak up as Blake Morar and Chris Abbott that ANY STAND on CU by that real estate organization which is supposedly held to higher standard than your typical business is wrong and unprofessional.

Call me stupid, but I’d seriously consider taking my business to Blake and Chris first.

Oh wait....you already did.
I’m sure they’re all penning letters right now out of fear of losing your business. :lol:

Good morning, Blue Mountain Beach Vagrant. I'm worried about you. You are on the site ALL THE TIME. It's
summer so go outside and enjoy your beach-front property. Honestly!! Get a hobby, read a book. Coastal
Library branch has some good selections in the New Arrivals section; I checked out a book last week. Enjoy!

Dave,

Nice creative writing. Problem is, everything in your letter is based on a false premise. You may wish that words were in laws the way you like them, they are not. You may wish to control someone else's property, you cannot. Shifting sands smells like a shifty sleight of hand. Our heritage is not a socialist heritage of sharing, but rather one of protection of rights, including personal property, not communal in nature. You may wish that people didn't own what they do, but none of that is true.

Therefore your letter is a wish list, like unicorns and rainbows. The sherrifff seems to be recognizing the position CU has put him in. The public seems to have woken up to the charade. Several people have repeatedly asked for a public forum to discuss.

Dave, as the voice of the movement, You ready?

No Poppaj, they should just pen their letters because it’s simply the right thing to do, like Blake Morar and Chris Abbott did.
Want to make clear, to CUers, about any BFO decision to use a Walton ECAR Realtor or not. Scenic Sotherby's brokers advocated for ECAR leadership to take NO position on public customary use of private property. ECAR Realtor leadership, CEO Keith Dean and member elected ECAR Presidents, representing, what 3,000+ ECAR Realtors, choose not to remain neutral but to pick sides on property rights or CU based on their personal CU agenda IMO - in opposition to the Nation Realtor policy on property rights. Good on Scenic Sotherby's brokers and what a "handful" of Realtors (and BFOs) to publicly call for ECAR to follow their own Nation Realtor policy. One beachfront listing would bring what 10 times(?) more commission than a listing north of 98? An ECAR agent would have to list and sale 10(?) private properties for each private beachfront property?

NAR Policy: Governments shall not arbitrarily infringe on the basic right of the individual to acquire, possess and

NAR supports legislative implementation of the 5th Amendment’s guarantee of compensation when property rights are taken. Every person should have the right to acquire real property with confidence and certainty that the use or value of such property will not be wholly or substantially eliminated by governmental action at any level without just compensation or the owner's express consent.

Yes, realtors promise to follow rules and ethics of their profession and are required to attend law and ethics courses as part of their continuing education therefore there is zero need to pen a ridiculous letter to appease some snowflake homeowner.
