Cease & Desist Sent to Realtor.com Regarding AgentMatch

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Heart Realty Group, Inc.. IL-471.002355

Sometimes it takes legal action to stop an unpoplar product and this appears to be the case with the beta feature that Move.com - the owner of Realtor.com - is beta testing in select areas.

This is the latest from Inman News which describes the issue.  I personally was unaware that NeighborCity existed but with so many websites using our MLS data its hard to keep up! 

I know many of us on Active Rain did not like this upcoming feature for many reasons.  I like it even less now that it may have come from an old idea that may have been reused by Realtor.com.

I think Santa is going to put Realtor.com on his Naughty List!

Interesting twist on this Agent Match thing.  I haven't liked the idea and maybe this is the universe letting Realtor.com know that it's not quite right either.

I do not like the idea that something with the Realtor trademark on it is picking winners and losing and giving advantages to one Realtor over another.  Let them pay for their own marketing.

It was another way for NAR to get money from Realtors and how sad we keep putting up with this crap.
