    by Drew Meyers on October 23, 2017

    I’ve written about Redfin before, most recently regarding their IPO and the IDX SEO issue. (disclosure: I own a small number of shares). I spent some time looking at their S-1, looking at their current product, and thinking through their future. They face a hard road strife with many competitors to fend off (with more to come) — but I’m bullish. Teams are certainly the future of real estate. Zillow knows that (see here), and Redfin knows that. Redfin happens to operate as the largest “team” in the country. In … Read More »

Posted on by Drew Meyers

There’s a fantastic article on the topic of VOWs that Inman published last week. It’s written by David Kully, an antitrust partner for Holland & Knight LLP. Mr. Kully worked for 18 years at the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he played a central role on the DOJ’s litigation against the NAR.

To settle the case, the DOJ and NAR negotiated a “consent … Read More »
