The Real Estate Council of BC has fast-tracked some changes it says will improve public protections.
The council says as of today it will use a lawyer in investigations of misconduct by a real estate agent.
The Real Estate Council has hired lawyer Patrick Poyner as its new legal counsel.

For serious cases involving public risk it will also employ a team of private investigators.
It says the changes were a part of a review of issues last year but were fast-tracked with the recent real estate issues including shadow flipping.
