How do you find out if a realtor is licensed or a scam?

Asked by mjosta, Philadelphia, PA Fri Aug 9, 2013

I was dealing with lovelyrentals.com and believe they are a scam after they did not show up for a scheduled appointment and I have subsequently not been able to get ahold of them. And if they are licensed how or where do I report them for shady practices?

You can search on the PA Bureau of Occupational Affairs website to see if someone, and/or a firm, is licensed to conduct real estate business.

You can check with the state to see if they are licensed. Be aware property owners may not need be licensed to sell property they own.

In PA, you can search a persons status with regard to a real estate salesperson license or any other license at this site. Just type in their name and click search.
