Virtual Office Websites (VOW)

A VOW (Virtual Office Website) is a participant’s Internet website, or a feature of a participant’s website, through which the participant is capable of providing real estate brokerage services to consumers with whom the participant has first established a lawful broker-consumer relationship (as defined by State law) where the consumer has the opportunity to search MLS listing information, subject to the participant’s oversight, supervision, and accountability.
