Class Action Notices: How to Handle Questions from Clients (3/4/24)

Many members are receiving questions about a notice of a proposed settlement in certain antitrust commission cases that has been sent nationwide this month. While NAR is not a party to the settlement agreements mentioned in the notice, we wanted to provide some factual information about what the notice means. Please use this information as guidance to answer questions from clients. You may also reference NC REALTORS® Legal Q&A: Antitrust Settlement Notices in Burnett v. NAR.

  • On February 1, 2024, a notice was sent to consumers related to settlement agreements reached between RE/MAX, Keller Williams, or Anywhere and the class action plaintiffs in the Burnett, Moehrl, and Nosalek cases. NAR is not involved in the proposed settlements.
  • The notice gives members of the settlement class information about how to, e.g., make a claim or opt-out of the settlements if, for example, they want to bring their own lawsuits against one or more of the defendants.
  • The proposed settlements between these parties are scheduled to be considered for final approval by the US District Court for the Western District of Missouri on May 9, 2024.
  • If someone asks for more details about the RE/MAX, Keller Williams, or Anywhere settlements or whether they should make a claim or opt out of the settlements, you could suggest that they consult an attorney. You can also refer them to the website listed on the notice for further information.

As always, updated information about NAR’s position in these and other cases can be found on and at
