“We expect a lot more cases to be filed” – HousingWire Managing Editor James Kleimann.

The questions surrounding the impacts, threats and opportunities around the real estate commission lawsuits are growing.

These lawsuits impact more than just real estate agents and brokers. There will be impacts in title and mortgage and opportunities for real estate portals. Who are the winners and losers? What is the path forward?

With the verdict in the Sitzer/Burnett buyer broker commission lawsuit only the beginning of a tidal wave of lawsuits, we unpack what’s next and what you need to know. 

In part one on Nov. 20, RTC Consulting Founder Steve Murray, who has served as an expert witness on many antitrust cases in the real estate industry, takes the stage. His depth of knowledge on brokerage business is unparalleled. Murray offers his insight from past cases, what the future might look like and the impact of copy cat lawsuits.

In part two on Nov. 27, Ryan Tomasello, managing director at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, joins us to discuss his latest research on the lawsuits and discuss the potential impact. Tomasello offers his perspective based on his recent analysis of the companies that might thrive, and address what the downward pressure on commissions might mean long term.
