Dishin' Dirt on Wall Street Journal Compares REALTORs to Drug Cartels!!! Plus the Re/Max and Anywhere Settlements.

10/19/2023
This week begins the Sitzer/Burnette trial on cooperative commissions.

Why not add Nazi and fascists? If you are going to use inflammatory language why not use the trifecta? This ridiculous article demonstrates that the Plaintiffs and mainstream media have no idea what you all do for a living or how the system works for the protection of the parties.
