DENVER, May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — RE/MAX, the #1 name in real estate*, received final approval of the settlement agreement in the class action lawsuits known as Burnett, Moehrl and Nosalek, and any similar claims on a nationwide basis. The approved settlement resolves the claims asserted against RE/MAX, LLC and includes releases for all U.S. RE/MAX independent regions, franchisees and agents.

To address the pending litigation and mitigate the uncertainties and costs associated with prolonged legal proceedings, RE/MAX, LLC entered into a settlement agreement with plaintiffs on October 5, 2023.

The settlement agreement will become effective following any appeals process, if applicable.

The settlement agreement is not an admission or concession of liability, or of the validity of any claim, defense, or point of fact or law on the part of any party. RE/MAX continues to deny the material allegations of the complaints in the lawsuits.
