What are the Settlements about?

The Settlements resolve claims against Anywhere Real Estate, Inc. f/k/a Realogy Holdings Corp. (“Anywhere”), RE/MAX LLC ("RE/MAX"), and Keller Williams Realty, Inc. ("Keller Williams") in a lawsuit that alleges the existence of an anticompetitive agreement that resulted in home sellers paying inflated commissions to real estate brokers or agents in violation of antitrust law.

What do the Settlements provide?

To be eligible to receive the benefits of the Settlements, you must have: (1) sold a home during the Eligible Date Range (see the Long Form Notices); (2) listed the home that was sold on a multiple listing service (“MLS”) anywhere in the United States; and (3) paid a commission to any real estate brokerage in connection with the sale of the home. The Eligible Date Ranges can be found on the Anywhere/RE/MAX Settlements Long Form Notice and Keller Williams Settlement Long Form Notice and also in FAQs 6 and 7.  

*Note: You do not need to have sold a home using an Anywhere, RE/MAX, or Keller Williams agent to make a claim.
