Real estate battle in Chicago intensifies

MLS cracks down on wayward brokers

The Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois leveled its latest punch in the duke out with real estate brokers in the Chicago area.

MLSNI will enforce an all-in or all-out policy regarding brokerage firms’ participation in the MLS after three large Chicago-area realty brokerages pulled listings from certain offices, Inman News has learned.

The MLSNI board of directors this week approved a motion to require that if a brokerage firm participates in the service, all of its offices within the market area must participate.
