The most popular story of the year based on the number of comments it has received on The Real Deal Web site is “Corcoran appeal of broker privacy ruling begins.” The item is about the the beginning of oral arguments in the Corcoran Group’s appeal of a State Supreme Court ruling that found the firm took advantage of former broker Sarit Shmueli by accessing her client list after she was terminated from the agency. The article has generated 232 comments.

The second most commented article is a follow-up story on the Corcoran-Shmueli case. The story, “Corcoran ruling upheld in appellate court,” addresses how the ruling against Corcoran was upheld, in what is considered a
landmark case that found agents — and not firms — to be in ownership
of their own client lists. The item received 197 comments.

The third most popular story based on comment tally is a question The Real Deal posed to readers: “Who is the best real estate lawyer out there?” One hundred and sixty-one people submitted responses.
