Marketing Activity Newsletter Agreement
In an effort to allow Brokers/Participants to advertise another Broker/Participant's listings and still comply with Section 12.8 of the MLS Rules (below), the Association implemented a program in 2001 called Market Activity Newsletter Agreement ("MANA").
12.8 Advertising of Listing Filed With the MLS. A listing shall not be advertised by any participant or subscriber, other than the listing broker, without the prior consent of the listing broker except as provided in Section 12.16 relating to display of listings on the internet.
The MANA program allows Brokers/Participants to give other Brokers/Participants and their agents permission to advertise their listings in printed materials such as newsletters. By a Broker/Participant becoming a signatory to the MANA, consent is given to other Brokers/Participants, who are also signatories to the MANA, to advertise their listings.
