NAR: Settlement talks likely to continue in DOJ antitrust case

Realtor group says both sides are open to discussion

Representatives for the National Association of Realtors have engaged in talks with U.S. Justice Department officials in an effort to resolve a 2-year-old antitrust lawsuit, and both parties are open to continuing the dialogue, according to a spokesman for the Realtor trade group.

“There have been negotiations up to this point,” said Lucien Salvant, a NAR spokesman, in late December. He said that “talks will continue,” as both parties are open to the discussions. DOJ officials offered no comment about the talks.
