Agree with the others here – there is no excuse for an agent behaving badly. Report them to the California DRE.

If they belong to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) & the local Santa Clara Association of Realtors (SCCAOR) or in this case since Downry?? CA, who ever if that local association of Realtors, I'd suggest reporting them to the local Association for an ethics violation ASAP. However is my guess is that the do NOT belong and therefore shouldn't shouldn't be calling themselves Realtors. If they are calling themselves Realtors like many do, but do not belong to NAR and a local association, please report them for that, but they will not be subject to the NAR Code of Ethics.

This brings up an important point, it is amazing to me how little research Buyers & Sellers often do on the agent(s) they are considering hiring to represent them in the largest financial transaction of their lives. Would you want a surgeon to operate on you who only did the procedure once or twice a year!?!??! Why not? Yet EVERY day a majority of Buyers and Sellers make decisions on who they will hire without knowing even the basics about the agent! Then folks complain that their experience with Realtors is kind of akin to dealing with "used car salesmen".

I encourage you and other Buyer/Sellers to read the Article "You are why the norm for agent professionalism is so low" at http://getrealrealtor.com/232809

Or this is also good "Could your listing agent be hired as the Director of Marketing for a World Class Company?", at http://getrealrealtor.com/252333

And before you ever hire a Realtor again, call me. I'll even give you a couple other good Realtors besides myself to interview.

There are 6000+ Realtors in Santa Clara County alone. As with any occupation, law, medicine, etc... all Realtors are not equal in experience, skills, training and effectiveness. Take the time to learn about a few Realtors and interview a couple. Hire the best. Why not?

I'm a bit confused.

Are you currently under contract to purchase a house with the Agent and Her Broker?

Have you already purchased?

If you are not under contract it sounds like it is not a good fit to work with this team and move on. Make sure you haven't signed a buyer broker agreement. If you have you need to notify them that you are canceling that contract.

When you report them to the Department of Real Estate or your Local Multiple Listing Board they will need information from you as to how you have been harmed or what damages you have.

Unless you have the the Section 1 repairs included in the contract or have indicated in the contract that there are existing contracts, the bank may not look at them. If you are FHA or VA there is a possibility they will condition the loan on certain repairs.

In any event your agent and broker should be working for you. Harassing an telling you to stop asking questions is unprofessional and unacceptable.

I hope it works out for you.

Terri thank you for your answer i will answer your question. We did buy the house This year my hand force by my wife. My wife made offer to buy this house and I was add on later we were going to buy the house with VA loan. i told my wife write the contract that we will buy the house if my VA loan is approved that way i can cancel the contract but that did not happen because the real estate agent talk my wife out of it then I was told by lender that the FHA or VA will not touch the loan so we end up getting other loan I have question for you what is section 1? What should I do next? Should report. Her and broker ( the broker is agents son ) DRE? Or dept. real estate ? Thank you for your help

I would report the agent to the California real estate commission. I would also suggest that your bank has absolutely no reason to review your home inspections report and I would under no circumstances provide it to them. You need an experienced buyer agent to represent you.

I've provided a link below on what you should be looking for and after reading it you might check out the Find A Pro tab at the top of every page on Trulia and then start making some calls and interviewing brokers in your area.

If a Realtor told you they were going to "kick you ***" I would defiantly report them to the DRE. Did they make threats before or after you used them to purchase a house?
