Allison is joined this week by special guest co-host Peg Ritenour, Vice President of Legal Services at Ohio REALTORS and Katie Johnson, General Counsel and Chief Member Experience Officer at National Association of REALTORS. Katie discusses the anti-trust and class action lawsuits that NAR is experiencing and what NAR is doing to combat these lawsuits. We then jump into the background and history of the Department of Justice case, what it means for Real Estate moving forward and how the withdraw of consent to settlement is unprecedented in our industry. She discusses the four rule changes that were included in the settlement. We discuss that the settlement was withdrawn without prejudice and what that means. Katie then gives ways REALTOR members can help fight the case, including being clear and concise on services offered.
