The uncertainty of the copycat lawsuits, along with the subsequent settlements by NAR and a host of big-box brokerages, have left many real estate agents anxious, unsettled and wondering what the new normal is going to look like.

At the same time, however, these same agents are being asked even more questions by their buyers and sellers, who’ve heard about all the kerfuffle and want to know how it will impact them.

So that we can all be better prepared, let us know: What commission questions are your clients asking? Are they trying to figure out how commissions work now? Are they asking you to cut your commission or questioning your value proposition? Are sellers trying to forego buyer commissions altogether? Are buyers asking for more seller concessions?

Agent frustration and uncertainty are at an all-time high right now, a result of questions swirling around commissions, communication and the National Association of Realtors (NAR), all exacerbated by a couple of years of sluggish market conditions. While some agents are eyeing the exit doors, others are just trying to figure out how to regroup and gear up for whatever comes next.
