you are Dealing with an Unethical Real Estate Agent
Every service industry has
people who indulge in unethical practices just to further their
own interests and, unfortunately, the real estate business is
included in that list of industries. However, there are certain
"red flag" warnings that can tell you ahead of time
that the person you are dealing with is not a professional,
legitimate and honest agent.
When searching for an excellent real estate agent to help you
buy or sell property, always remain aware of the following:
Real estate agents who do not stay
in contact with you. If you have called your agent with
questions or relevant information concerning a property
and you do not receive a return call within a few days,
consider finding another agent. He or she may be trying
to juggle too many transactions at one time or is simply
not devoting enough attention to their job. This type
of behavior could result in frustrating delays, inaccurate
documents or indicate a less then ethical real estate
Does your real estate agent suggest
using a specific mortgage company or lender right away?
If so, consider finding another agent with which to work.
Agents who pressure clients into taking loans out from
certain lenders are usually getting a cut of the fees
associated with the loan. Professional real estate agencies
like Orly Chen do not suggest lenders to clients unless
the client directly asks for advice concerning mortgage
Has the agent incurred any disciplinary
actions in the past? Each state retains records of any
disciplinary actions taken against real estate brokers
and can be access online or by writing to the agency.
Contact your state's Association of Real Estate License
Law Officials to find out if you are dealing with an honest
real estate agent.
Be wary of misleading offers by
shady real estate agents if you are selling your home.
Some agents attempt to submit a lower price to the seller
than the price given to the buyers. They want to sell
homes as fast as possible to avoid fluctuations in the
housing market in order to receive the highest commission
possible at that time. They do not care if the seller
receives the best deal or if he is satisfied with the
final deal because these agents know there are other vulnerable
home sellers just like him out there waiting to be scammed.
Always ask to see the real estate
agent's license if you have never worked with the agent.
For every five licensed and reputable realtors who are
genuinely concerned with the service they provide for
their clients, one unlicensed and totally bogus "real
estate agent" exists to rip off people and flee the
scene before law enforcement can catch them.
To avoid getting caught in the slick trap of a scam artist when
buying or selling property, select a real estate agent like
Orly Chen that has years of experience, hundreds of satisfied
clients and the ability to give you the undivided attention
you need in order to make your real estate experience a smooth,
rewarding and expedited process.
