The NAR settlement has undoubtedly generated questions, concerns and misinformation. In response, we have launched The Reality of Real Estate. It is a campaign dedicated to providing the facts to agents, consumers and the media about the settlement and the potential impacts as well as highlighting the value of using a REALTOR®.

The Reality of Real Estate is your home for the facts. This page is designed to help consumers understand the potential impacts of the settlement with the latest FAQs, buyer and seller guides, financial tools and a video playlist featuring former ABC 13 news anchor Art Rascon.

There are also individual pages tailored to particular groups:
