Hi Jonathan,

The way the contracts are written today it is very difficult to back out of a contract. I suggest you hire an attorney or at least consult with one. The attorney below who responded to your question is excellent.

Good Luck

This was long ago - I realize -
But same rules apply today -

In any case where you feel your rights have been violated -
There are remedies in place to allow for clarity -

This certainly sounds like some rules have been broken!
Realtor's are licensed professionals and accountable to the licensing bureau.
Start there then - call upon the Realtor's Association.

They will not rule - simply assist in providing clarity as to the rules...
More than likely, this would be a dead issue after these contacts are made.

I would wager to say more Realtor'f fear being sued - than ever consider suing...

I know the area - I understand the market.

And I know the rules!

If your contacts are good contacts (the right people)...then you could start by asking them to give you a small number of "test" orders to gauge your performance. You will need to have a plan in place beforehand though. You'll need to know which areas you want to cover, and which agents you are going to hire to get you started on the right foot. These agents should be "superstar" agents, as you'll want to impress your client. I believe that starting locally with agents you're familiar with would be a good way to go, then branch out into other (unfamiliar) territorities when you get comfortable with your processes. Good luck to you.

As we see it the biggest concern about condos and townhouses are the HOA fee structure. Insurance, maintenance, amenities, etc seemingly continue to carry a financial burden that is difficult to predict.

If this is your consideration, it may be beneficial to gather as much information on this topic as possible prior to making a decision.

Good luck
