We know that the recent National Association of Realtors settlement has raised many questions and created significant uncertainty. We want to assure you that your team at Slifer Smith & Frampton has been closely monitoring the litigation and preparing for a settlement for some time by studying the many potential outcomes and providing additional training to brokers so they can provide accurate information to clients.

In short, we are in favor of any regulation, law or standard that creates greater transparency in our industry. Our singular priority remains the relationships we have with our clients, and we encourage you to engage with us with your thoughts and questions. 

Buyer-side fees will be more transparent, we welcome this change because at the end of the day we are local experts deeply committed to our communities and always seeking the best for our clients. We know you have questions. We are here for you.

While we may not know all of the short and long-term impacts of these changes right now, we do expect that this new environment will create a separation among the best service providers in our industry and continuing to demonstrate our value to clients will be paramount.

  • Find you the right property – on or off-market – in the location that best suits your lifestyle needs.
  • Be your advocate in negotiating a fair price that is advantageous to your circumstances.
  • Navigate all aspects of the transaction - including interpreting inspections, disclosures, and repairs – with timely, efficient and clear communication to ensure there are no surprises.


For our sellers, we stand by our commitment to:


  • Provide market-leading insight and strategy that positions your property for optimal success, including the engagement of buyers’ agents.
  • Engage a rich database of prospective buyers curated over more than 60 years of building local relationships and connections.
