Understanding the NAR Settlement


As your trusted Realtor, I want to keep you informed about the recent developments in our industry. You may have heard about the National Association of Realtors (NAR) $418 million settlement, a hot topic in the news. This settlement addresses litigation regarding broker commissions, potentially signaling changes in real estate practices, particularly in commission handling and disclosure.


Key Changes:

  1. Commission Transparency: The settlement proposes measures to improve transparency, such as barring seller's agents from listing buyer agent commissions on MLS listings.
  2. Buyer Representation: It introduces a requirement for buyer's agents to establish written contracts with their clients, formalizing the representation agreement.


What This Means for You:

Currently, it's business as usual until the court approves the settlement around mid-July. However, there may be shifts in real estate transactions post-decision.

My Commitment:

Despite potential changes, my dedication to providing exceptional service remains unwavering. Whether you're buying or selling in Aspen or beyond, here's how I can assist you:

  1. Expert Guidance: I'll navigate the complexities of real estate transactions, ensuring you're well-informed and confident throughout.
  2. Market Insight: With a deep understanding of our local market, I can offer tailored advice to align with your goals.
  3. Dedicated Advocacy: As your Realtor, I'm committed to securing the best outcomes for you, whether negotiating deals or adapting to changes in the industry.
  4. Personalized Approach: I'm passionate about helping you achieve your real estate goals with a personalized touch, leveraging my love for our community and my profession.

I love what I do and I love where I live as a local Aspen Snowmass Realtor. My goal is to share my knowledge and expertise with you, so that when the time is right to make your real estate moves, you can do it with confidence. Please always feel free to reach out for questions. I am here for you.
