I don't have an answer, but I am a buyer and we are in negotiations with a buyer. The buyer is demanding that we use a specific lender and also specifying that we lend at a specific rate. This is in Illinois. Is this legal? We are actually qualifying for a better rate then what the buyer has specified. It seems shady to us.... more

If you're investing for your own account, you do not need a CA broker license. If you have a CA broker license, you are not required to use your own license, you can use any licensed broker if you want representation. There has been a case where a CA licensed broker buying for his own account was denied the payment of the selling agent commission because he was not technically using his broker license "to assist others." Using another broker might be the way to go!... more

We just completed a 20,000 pc EDDM campaign within 4 post office's in Brooklyn, NY.
We had only two responses.
6 of the routes were chosen because we had verifiable address's, meaning we had employees living on these routes looking for the EDDM to arrive in order to confirm.
Not one arrived!!
We complained to the post masters in Red hook, Cadman Plaza, and Williamsburg specifically. Not a call back. Placed calls to USPS EDDM div in Washington and although they followed up with us, they claimed every EDDM was delivered properly.
Obviously it wasn’t because our 6 addresses were never delivered and the assumption must be that most others weren’t also.
We believe that the postal workers simply toss these out; which is technically mail fraud, but its non-traceable so they don’t care.
