Q: In a gated community in Georgia, is it legal to allow only one real estate company to post their for sale signs and
Other realtors from a different company can not use their own signs with their name posted this one company has a monopoly on the community. Is this legal?
A: A Georgia real estate attorney would be able to advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, it could be legal because it sounds like the actions of a private entity. Had it been affiliated with the government, doing something like that could have run afoul of competitive public bidding or hiring protocols. Being that it's private, they are probably free to use whoever they please. Good luck
