        More Details about Forms

        How are the new forms developed? The WB forms are prepared and approved for use by the REEB. Prior to approval, drafts are reviewed by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association Forms Committee, chaired by REALTOR® Tom Sykora, and comments are forwarded on to the DSPS Real Estate Contractual Forms Advisory Committee. Once the DSPS state forms are finalized, WRA-drafted forms are examined to see if changes are warranted.
