A coalition of Realtors and financial institutions was started last week to promote their affinity programs.

The Coalition for Consumer Choice in Real Estate noted that realty programs offering referrals and cash rebates for movers, airline travel, and other services for homebuyers face restrictions in Oklahoma, New Jersey, Louisiana, Alaska, West Virginia, Mississippi, Kentucky, Idaho, Oregon, and Kansas.

Founding members include Baird & Warner Realtors of Chicago; Coldwell Banker Stevens Realtors of Virginia; O'Connor, Piper & Flynn-ERA of Baltimore; the Employee Relocation Council, USAA Federal Savings Bank; Cendant Mobility; and Amerinet Financial Systems.
