“We found Carol and Robert through their blog, and could not be more happy that we did. We felt an immediate connection, and knew that they were the team for us. Through countless conversations and visits to prospective homes, Carol and Robert always made us feel as if we were their top priority. They made the process of finding our new home fun and enjoyable, and really set the stage for the new life we would be creating in the mountains of North Carolina. I think what makes them such outstanding partners while looking for a new home is that they really listen. They could anticipate what we were looking for, and opened our eyes to properties we otherwise would not have looked at. The home we bought is an example of that.

When discount and flat fee compensation arrangements started growing in popularity  in the early 2000s some MLSes changed their membership rules or rule enforcement to make discount/flat fee MLS listings difficult or impossible. In response, the Federal Trade Commission investigated, found several violations of anti-trust laws, and entered into settlements with five MLSes to enable free competition for listings. One MLS, Realcomp in Michigan, refused to enter a settlement/consent agreement with the FTC, asserting it had the right to hide listings of discounters because such competition is detrimental to the revenue of its members. In 2006, the FTC filed a lawsuit against the Realcomp MLS alleging violations of federal anti-trust laws and squelching free competition.  The lawsuit went to trial in 2007 and the FTC lost, but won the case in a 4-0 unanimous ruling on appeal in 2009.
