Perhaps, you should REMOVE this question, and rephrase; we wouldn't want you to get suid!

Question almost sounds like "how much wood would a woodchuck chuck...."

Rosemary....just what are you asking?

If it's what I think....how can a a tester (I assume you mean for licensing) be SUED by a seller, if the agent was tested and passed the exam? What happens after an agent get's their license is solely the agents responsibility and their conduct etc is not the responsibility of anyone who "tested" them.

@Adriana...you really need spell/grammar check

Please Rosemary, you must explain what you meant. Annette poses a good question. Are you suggesting someone from the RE board posed as a buyer to "test " an agent, like some sort of internal.affairs investigation and in the process caused a legitimate offer from a "real" buyer to lose the sale of their home?
At this point we are all dying for a clearer picture of the situation.

Ok, we've settled the 'wood chuck."
Now. let's focus on Peter Piper a.k.a. "the tester.'

"the tester' as described in your question, is a foreign circumstance for most of us.
Who is this tester?
Who said they were a tester?
Do you have an identifiable organization?
Are you suggesting this is a person working on behalf of the licensing board to make certain an agent process a purchase offer properly?
-
It there a possibility of a more nefarious intent towards the agent?
-
I've never heard of, or encountered this. But, be aware, for those with the money...you can sue for ANYTHNG!

A bit confusing--but if I understand what you are asking, I have never heard of someone posing as a buyer (tester?), being sued by a seller for losses/damages--I'm assuming you mean due to the loss of a sale because something the listing agent did not handle correctly?

Rosemary,

What kind of "tester" are you speaking of ? Even your explanation is not clear...

A "tester" posing as a buyer?? What does that mean? Maybe they do things differently in MI than in NJ, but people who give "tests" to anyone, or any profession, are buyers too and can make offers on homes. Real estate agents need to disclose they are an agent when making an offer, I am not so sure about a "tester"..unless they too have an RE license...

You really need to clarify your question OR just contact your local State Real Estate Board and ask the question of them.

Oh and sorry my pet peeve is spelling (not typos)..it's SUED..not suid

My question refers to the tester delaying the sale of a home and/or steering the seller away from accepting an offer by posing as a buyer.

Who regulates the real estate agent testers?
What is the code of conduct/ethics for a realtor tester?
Has a real estate agent tester ever been suid by a seller for losses/damages from the tester testing a seller's agent and delaying the sale of the home?
Does a tester have to honestly answer when asked if they are a tester?
Does each state have there own regulations or is there a code of ethics all testers must adhere to?

Rosemary,

Not that I know of but possibly. Interested to know what losses or damages could or did a seller suffer as a result of a tester testing the seller's agent.
