Realty Executives Boston West and I pledge our unwavering dedication to your needs and interests, embodying the cornerstone of our ethos. As discussions swirl around the proposed settlement from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), we want to reaffirm our steadfast commitment to serving you with excellence.

Over the past 2-3 years, our brokerage has prepared for potential industry shifts, always placing your satisfaction and security at the forefront of our priorities. Despite the noise of sensationalized headlines and misinformation, we remain resolute in our mission to deliver transparent, reliable real estate services precisely tailored to your unique requirements.

Allow us to address the essence of this proposed settlement and dispel any misconceptions: 


A Closer Look at the NAR Settlement
The NAR settlement, unveiled on March 15, 2024, introduces adjustments to Buyer Agent Compensation and mandates the utilization of Buyer Representation Agreements between Buyer(s) and Buyer Agents.

Anticipating Change
Should this settlement gain approval, these adjustments are slated to come into effect by mid-July 2024. While MLSs will see modifications regarding the offer of Buyer Agent  Compensation, rest assured that our commitment to transparency remains unwavering. Your understanding and advocacy for your best interests remain central to our approach. 

Maintaining Home Value Integrity

It's essential to clarify that while the settlement addresses certain industry practices, it does not directly impact housing costs. These costs are chiefly influenced by supply and demand dynamics within the market. 

Navigating Existing Contracts
Existing contracts are unlikely to be affected before the targeted implementation date in July. We're diligently monitoring developments to ensure a seamless transition for our clients, maintaining our pledge to prioritize your peace of mind and satisfaction.

Clarifying Commission Rates
In the real estate industry, there is no one-size-fits-all commission rate. Commission rates have always been, and remain negotiable and vary across different marketplaces and brokerages. At Realty Executives Boston West, our policies prioritize fairness and transparency in all our dealings.
Elevating Buyer Protections
Buyer Representation remains grounded in essential fiduciary duties, including obedience, loyalty, disclosure, confidentiality, accounting, and reasonable care. Upholding these standards is paramount as we advocate for your best interests.

The Value of Buyer Representation
In today's competitive market landscape, expert guidance is invaluable. With Buyer Representation, you gain access to tailored strategies and insights, empowering you to make informed decisions throughout your home-buying journey.

Understanding Listing Agent Limitations
It's crucial to recognize the limitations of Listing Agents in advocating for buyers. Listing Agents have a legal (Fiduciary) obligation to serve the best interests of the home seller they represent. Buyer Representation ensures your interests are consistently at the forefront, from offering strategies to conducting comprehensive market analyses.

Mitigating Risks for Unrepresented Buyers
Without representation, Buyers risk missing out on vital opportunities and lacking the expertise needed to navigate complex market conditions effectively.

Affirming the Role of Buyer Agency

Buyer Agency remains an indispensable component of the real estate landscape, offering unwavering support and guidance to buyers throughout the transaction process.

Together with Realty Executives Boston West, we maintain our steadfast commitment to you. We are dedicated to serving your needs, delivering exceptional service, and ensuring your peace of mind at every stage of your real estate journey. As developments unfold, we will continue to keep you informed and empowered.
