Thomas - seriously - you are so unaware of Fair Housing laws and the Realtor Code of Ethics .
Perhaps because you have been out of the buisness for some years, you're not aware of why you shouldn't be stating your opinion in the manner you have............ but ignorance of the law is no excuse.
Do you have a Broker who can explain this to you?
Your reply to me made my jaw drop:
"If you want your client to buy a property near a grow house or god knows what, steer them right there. I would rather show nicer areas.
Agents mayNOT steer buyers To or AWAY from any location.
Just because you may or may not want to live in a certain area, doesn't mean someone else might not want to.
We can supply facts - not opinions - about an area. We can direct consumers to links online, or refer them to an area's website, or even suggest they call the local police station to get those sort of questions answered, but we CANNOT say "this area is better/worse than that area".
Your opinion is just that - it's YOUR opinion, and as a real estate professional, you're not supposed to share it in the manner you did.
And, to see someone do this on an open forrm, on the internet, is mind boggling to me.
I strongly suggest you delete your previous responses, as anyone in your area could use your comments against you, possibly even report you to the FL Real Estate Commission......not to mention the impression you will leave if a local consumer sees those comments.
