A virtual Town Hall meeting to be hosted by Nevada REALTORS, and featuring U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen, was forced to be postponed Monday after a late change to the Senator's schedule. Rosen had been set to participate in a Zoom Town Hall meeting Wednesday morning (June 16) with NVR members. However, a Senate caucus meeting was called, nixing the event.
More than 200 NVR members had registered for Wednesday's planned meeting. Rosen was among the first of Nevada's federal lawmakers to meet with the association's membership when Covid wreaked havoc a year ago. She met with NVR members in a similar meeting fashion last June and was set for her second town hall before the scheduling change.
NVR officials are already working with Rosen staffers to reschedule the virtual Town Hall. A new date will likely be set for later this summer. Please email Info@NVRealtors.org with any questions.

A U.S. District Court Judge ruled against the Texas-based start-up on Wednesday, June 9, stating allegations that Zillow has been giving preferential treatment to NAR broker listings didn't hold up in court.
The decision comes months after REX filed a federal antitrust lawsuit against the two organizations, claiming recent changes to Zillow's webpage have been biasedly steering users to listings connected to NAR. The issue stemmed mainly from Zillow's decision earlier to transition from a real estate search portal into its buying-and-selling entity earlier in 2021. Part of the shift included Zillow joining Multiple Listing Services and gathering listing data from the service's IDX feeds. Click here to continue reading.
