Where's Justice When You Need It?

Oct 12, 2007 Michael Wurzer

As Matt Bester of the Department of Justice was making his case yesterday in Seattle to the Council of MLS as to why the DOJ believes the real estate industry is anti-competitive, the California Association of REALTORS was playing big brother in Anaheim during the CAR meetings as they were seeking a vote to create a monopoly statewide MLS system.

Clareity Consulting had issued a paper detailing why it’s a bad idea for CAR to try to establish a monopoly MLS system, and, as Inman reported, CAR literally took the paper from the Board of Directors hands.  Maybe Mr. Bester should have been in Anaheim instead of Seattle.
