There has been a lot happening at the National Association of REALTORS® this past week since the verdict in the Burnett et al v. NAR et al case and the announcement of our new interim CEO, Nykia Wright. I wanted to share some additional perspectives about where we are at this moment in time.

As disappointed as I know we all are by the immediate outcome, this is just one chapter in a longer legal process as we plan to appeal the verdict. While we don’t have all the answers about how this will continue to play out, know that we are working around the clock to evaluate the situation and get the best advice about the path forward.

In my note last week right after the verdict, I addressed some immediate questions we’d anticipated. Today, I’m following up with some additional high-level guidance to help you communicate about the verdict – please see below.

Finally, I encourage everyone to keep sharing with your clients and communities the value you as REALTORS® provide to your clients day in and day out. I have seen a number of these personal reflections in recent days, and they are so impactful and inspiring. Keep them coming, everyone.

As always, we will continue to keep you updated.

Thank you for all that you do!

Tracy Kasper
