Who We Are

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) sets, regulates, and enforces standards for real estate, mortgage brokerage and property management licensees. We work in the public interest, we protect consumers, and we’re a source of neutral, independent information for consumers about Alberta’s real estate industry and working with its licensees.

RECA has information that, when combined with assistance from a real estate licensee, can help you navigate your home purchase.
