Ruthman Real Estate believes that this clearly violates the ethics of the real estate profession and the fiduciary duty we have to the sellers. Ruthman goes above and beyond the traditional full fiduciary service definition. Traditional Full Fiduciary Services are (and not limited to): Consolidated MLS.Accepts and presents to the Seller(s) offers to purchase procured by cooperating brokers. Advise the Seller(s) as to the merits of offers to purchase Assist the Seller(s) in developing, communicating, or presenting counter-offers Participate on the Seller(s) behalf in negotiations leading to the sale of the listed property. Limited Services will not provide one or more of the above. MLS Entry-only Listings will not provide any of the above.ANTI-TRUST - Price Fixing or Boycotting. The concept of antitrust basically relates to one's attempts to limit, or do away with, competition by engaging in various tactics designed to chase the competition away or otherwise put them out of business. If a real estate company conspires with another company (or companies) to somehow put a competitor out of business, such as through price fixing or a group boycott, they may have engaged in an antitrust violation punishable under federal and/or state law. Two or more competing brokers cannot agree on a "standard" commission rate to charge their clients. This is impermissible because all commissions are negotiable between the broker and the seller. Of course, this also comes back to the concept that competitors cannot join together to set prices. Likewise, two or more competitors cannot agree to a set commission they will each offer to cooperating brokers in the MLS. This is true whether a company sets a general cooperating commission across the board, or whether they agree to each pay x% to all cooperating brokers, but to pay a lesser amount to Broker B, who practices under a new, non-traditional business model. Note that the companies' agreement to set a lower cooperating commission for Broker B also suggests a boycott. Avoid real estate company agents who make comments that no one will show or sell the listing because of the particular commission split.
