If that happens, the changes would go into effect around mid-June, marking the biggest regulatory shakeup in real estate advertising in 19 years. [more]

From the January issue: Life is good for Marcel, a French bulldog from Brooklyn — at least according to the new Corcoran Group TV commercial he stars in. In the firm’s first ever TV spot, which began airing last month and already has more than 536,000 views on YouTube, Marcel can be seen browsing high-end apartments on Corcoran’s website, getting a massage and dining out with Lulu, a fellow Frenchie. The commercial, which comes in 30- and 60-second spots, has been airing weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. on NY1 and Fox, and is being shown in New York taxicabs.

The Corcoran Group aired a first ever live-action television commercial, aimed at promoting the brokerage giant’s recently unveiled website redesign.
The 30- and 60-second spots follow Marcel, a French bulldog in search of new digs after being booted from his co-op for barking. To aid his search, Marcel uses Corcoran’s new website to browse listings in his price range, find agents and scout neighborhoods. (See video after the jump.)
