WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – After a brief hiatus in the Wilmington market, eShowings is back in business in Wilmington.
The real estate showing service shut down on December 9, after the founder and former CEO Charles Smith was sentenced to over 2 years for embezzlement. When the company shutdown it left an estimated 14,000 clients, including almost 1,700 clients from the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors (WRAR).
The MLS President Jody Wainio posted this comment on the WRAR website:
Over the last 48 hours, eShowings has re-opened for business and is operating in the local call center to provide service to WRAR. While we are glad that their business is restored, we continue to build a contingency plan to protect our members. Please understand that there are contractual agreements that your Association is a part of, but not able to share as they are truly confidential and could open doors to a lawsuit against the Association as well as its Board of Directors.
We do not take this breach lightly and, along with our legal counsel, we continue to monitor and plan for the future to ensure the success of our members. If you experience a problem with the eShowings service that you did not have before the shutdown, please report these issues through email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again for your cooperation and patience!
