Continuing with its 20-year history of advocating for home buyers, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents filed an Amicus Curiae or “friend of the court” brief on behalf of the plaintiff in a case currently before the California Supreme Court. In his suit Horiike v.

Bottom line, this is still a seller's market.
