Right now, Realtors® are still being shut out of conducting cold calls due to the ongoing State of Emergency in New York. This is impeding business, and we need to urge Governor Cuomo and state lawmakers to put an end to the cold call ban now.
We are essential to New York's economy, and we need to be able to fully operate and conduct business without this restriction. Even during the onset of the pandemic, real estate services were deemed an essential professional service by Empire State Development, recognizing the importance of a vibrant and open real estate market.
There is a critical housing shortage and this ban is making it worse by stopping us from developing new listings. It's overdue to end this counterproductive restriction.
