In consideration of the Participant's past and/or continued employment with or service to the Company or any Affiliate and for other good and valuable consideration, effective as of the Grant Date set forth in the Notice (the "Grant Date"), the Company irrevocably grants to the Participant the number of Restricted Stock Units as set forth in the Notice, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and this Agreement.
2.2Consideration to the Company. In consideration of the grant of the Restricted Stock Units by the Company, the Participant agrees to render services to the Company or any Affiliate. Nothing in the Plan or this Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employ or service of the Company or any Affiliate or shall interfere with or restrict in any way the rights of the Company and its Affiliates, which rights are hereby expressly reserved, to discharge or terminate the services of the Participant at any time for any reason whatsoever, except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in a written agreement between the Company or an Affiliate and the Participant.
RESTRICTIONS AND RESTRICTION PERIOD

3.3Settlement of Restricted Stock Units. Within a reasonable period of time after each Vesting Date (and in no event later than the March 15th following the year in which the applicable Vesting Date occurs), the Company shall pay and transfer to the Participant a number of shares of Common Stock of Realogy Holdings Corp.

6.13Entire Agreement. The Plan, the Notice and this Agreement (including all Exhibits thereto, if any) constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede in their entirety all prior undertakings and agreements of the Company and the Participant with respect to the subject matter hereof.
6.14Section 409A. The intent of the parties is that payments and benefits under this Agreement and the Award be exempt from, or comply with, Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”), and accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, this Agreement and the Award shall be interpreted and administered to be in accordance therewith. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Participant shall not be considered to have terminated his or her services with the Company for purposes of any payments under this Agreement and the Award which are subject to Section 409A of the Code until the Participant would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code. Each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this Agreement and the Award shall be construed as a separate identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code, and any payments described in this Agreement and the Award that are due within the “short term deferral period” as defined in Section 409A of the Code shall not be treated as deferred compensation unless applicable law requires otherwise. Without limiting the foregoing and notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A of the Code, amounts that would otherwise be payable and benefits that would otherwise be provided pursuant to this Agreement and the Award during the six-month period immediately following the Participant's separation from service shall instead be paid on the first business day after the date that is six months following the Participant's separation from service (or, if earlier, the Participant's death). The Company makes no representation that any or all of the payments described in this Agreement and the Award will be exempt from or comply with Section 409A of the Code and makes no undertaking to preclude Section 409A of the Code from applying to any such payment. The Participant understands and agrees that he or she shall be solely responsible for the payment of any taxes and penalties incurred under Section 409A.
6.15Disclosure Regarding Use of Personal Information.
