Two events this week provide an opportunity to build momentum for industry reform: Mass. Association of Realtors (MAR) Day on the Hill (6/14) and the 51st annual Real Estate Journalism Conference #NAARE17 (6/14-16) These three blog posts are designed to create visibility for real estate, the Sleeping Giant of the Consumer Movement and seed story ideas for reporters:

Will Wall Street cause Consumer Advocates to revisit Real Estate Cartel?


Open Letter to National Association of Real Estate Editors #NAREE17


From #FakeBuyerAgents to Smart Disclosures & Information Fiduciaries


Have requested a meeting with @MassPIRG to background their team, and get these issues on @ConsumerFed's radar screen if not the front page of the Boston a Globe. It's time to blow the whistle on this:
