Using a Mac with RE/Xplorer and Paragon

If you'd like to get RE/Xplorer and Paragon to run on an Intel-based Mac, there are a couple of ways you can do that.
You can buy a copy of Parallels or Fusion, and either of those will let you run the Windows operating system.You will also need to buy a copy of Windows to install in one of those 2 programs, such as Windows 7.
Another way to get Windows running on a Mac is to use BootCamp, which is included with newer Macs, but then you have to reboot the computer each time you want to switch between the Mac or PC operating systems.
You would also still need to buy a copy of Windows to install with BootCamp, just like with Parallels or Fusion.

Difference between types of notifications

Do you know the difference between a Courtesy Notification and a Violation Notification from Data Verification?
A Courtesy Notice is simply a notice to let you know that the info in our tax database differs slightly from the data you input on your listing. Please double check your info. There is no need to contact the GFC CMLS office. No fines will result from a Courtesy Notice.
A Violation Notice is a notice informing you that your listing info 1) differs greatly from our tax info and/or 2) requires your immediate attention. All Violation Notifications require you to either change/fix your listing OR contact us via phone or email BEFORE the noted Grace Date. If the Grace Date passes and no changes have been made or no reply is received, a fine will be issued to both the listing agent as well as the listing office. If the issue is not resolved, additional fines will accrue every 30 days.
