3) You can also contact the Real Estate Licensing Board at or find them at reporting the specific property and real estate agent in question.

For what its worth, the property just closed on November 10th at less than 1/2 original list price. I noticed that your post was in July ... perhaps you had brought your complaints somewhere and it resulted in an adjustment?
