Trade group cites ongoing litigation as reason for the exclusion, Inman.com reports.
Connecticut Multiple Listing Service CEO Cameron Paine stood up at the National Association of Realtors' (NAR's) midyear conference last week and asked a question that, for a moment, stunned a room of hundreds into silence:
Why is realtor.com operator Move Inc. -- a third-party company owned by News Corp., not NAR -- pitching its products to NAR members, while Zillow and homes.com are not?
Although not explained at the time, this is why Zillow was not presenting: Zillow Group and its companies have been banned from NAR's 2016 events, including its Association Executives Institute, the midyear legislative conference and the annual conference in November.
