Just received the following from NAR regarding the recent 60 minutes segment about Realtors and our industry.
"The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® issued the following response to a May 13 segment of 60 Minutes on real estate competition. The full response is posted on REALTOR.org.
CBS News Magazine Misses the Mark
In the world of political campaigns, it's a standard ploy to set the stage with an empty chair when one candidate refuses to debate his opponents.
The CBS show 60 Minutes gave the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® the empty chair treatment in a May 13 segment that examined the impact of online brokerages on the real estate industry. The show featured interviews with a representative from the now-defunct eRealty and the president and CEO of Redfin, but no one from NAR, even though NAR twice offered and prepared association spokespersons for interviews with Leslie Stahl. It was CBS that made the decision it would rather interview our opponents and let them make unanswered -- and inaccurate and unfair -- accusations about REALTORS® and NAR policies."
