* LEaDeR stands for Leading Edge for Designated REALTORS® - a former subscription program that has been discontinued. Although the articles contain very valuable information, they are not regularly updated and, thus, it is imperative that members verify the accuracy of the legal information by consulting an attorney on the C.A.R. Legal Hotline.
