Regardless of an agent being a member of REBNY or not, the best way top check if an agent is legit would be to check with the New York State Department of State to see if the agent has any blemishes on their license or has had any complaints and/or legal issues or just to make sure they are truly a licensed real estate salesperson. You can also Google the agents name and see what comes up. I do that with just about everyone I meet these days. Do it with your own name as well and see what comes up, you may be surprised.
