Minnesota Realtors are Lobbying Hard for an Anti-Consumer Law

Our Executive Director, Doug Miller, testified before the Minnesota Senate Commerce Committee on March 6th, 2019 about a Designated Dual Agency Bill that the Realtor Association is attempting to pass. This law conceals the conflicts of interest from the consumer and consumers are actually encouraged to divulge confidential negotiating information to untrusted parties. The bill was introduced by a Senator who is a Realtor. The chair of the Senate Committee was a Realtor and the bill is moving to another committee in which the same Realtor is chair of that committee. Here is a rough white paper that Mr. Miller wrote on this topic to be distributed to Minnesota consumers.
