N.A.R. Commission Settlement. What do I need to know?

Valued Clients,

We know that the recent National Association of Realtors settlement has raised many questions and created significant uncertainty. We want to assure you that your team at Slifer Smith & Frampton has been closely monitoring the litigation and preparing for a settlement for some time by studying the many potential outcomes and providing additional training to brokers so they can provide accurate information to clients.

In short, we are in favor of any regulation, law or standard that creates greater transparency in our industry. Our singular priority remains the relationships we have with our clients, and we encourage you to engage with us with your thoughts and questions. 

If you have questions, Ask Us.

While we may not know all of the short and long-term impacts of these changes right now, we do expect that this new environment will create a separation among the best service providers in our industry and continuing to demonstrate our value to clients will be paramount.

To better understand the proposed changes, Ask Us.

For our buyers, we stand by our commitment to:

  • Find you the right property – on or off-market – in the location that best suits your lifestyle needs.
  • Be your advocate in negotiating a fair price that is advantageous to your circumstances.
  • Navigate all aspects of the transaction – including interpreting inspections, disclosures, and repairs – with timely, efficient and clear communication to ensure there are no surprises.

For our sellers, we stand by our commitment to:

  • Provide market-leading insight and strategy that positions your property for optimal success, including the engagement of buyers’ agents.
  • Engage a rich database of prospective buyers curated over more than 60 years of building local relationships and connections.
  • Employ incomparable risk mitigation strategies that ensure full compliance with the numerous legal requirements for home sellers.

Regardless of the ultimate impacts of this settlement, Slifer Smith & Frampton will continue to be fully focused on serving our clients across Colorado with transparency, accountability, passion, and commitment. We welcome your comments and input and encourage you to Ask Us any questions about this new landscape.
