AGENTS/BUYERS/SELLERS: there is justice . . . try not to be unethical, it may come back to haunt you!

Asked by Voices Member, Tue Nov 27, 2007

Today I was successful at proving my case against a seller who did me seriously wrong. I am unable to get into details because there is a gag order in place.

While I was waiting for to see the mediator, to my surpirse another case was being discussed regarding "who was entitled to the listing fees" involving a large, reputable real estate company.

I write this post only to advise those who are thinking about cutting out your realtor or agents who feel that pursuing a matter is not worth the time . . . it certainly is worth something. Chaching!

My point here Ian, is that if one is taken to court you have two options (1) mediate the matter to a settlement or (2) incur ooodles of attorneys fees to get before a Judge to make your point.

It cost my seller an extra $2,500 to take this to court instead of settling. I had so much documentation the sller's his head was spinning.

And, I might add, that I was gracious with my agreement . . . I certainly could have walked out with much more than I did.
