Citizen's Arrest: Agent Calls Out Craitslisters

New, 3 comments

Red card! A rather pissed off-sounding agent sent us the following listing, it's blatant violation on many fronts. (Loking out for the Craig, as always.) Here's the shill: "I can show you this home over the holidays! Get a head start on the competition, come see this home, and Buy It, before it hits the Multiple Listing Service in mid-January!!!" And the commentary:

Here’s our industry at its worst:
Blatant misuse of Craigslist
2. Blatant violation of our code of ethics – this is a pocket listing represented by an SFAR realtor – the advertisement is illegal as it doesn’t list an actual address and it doesn’t list the brokerage – these are both mandated – so it’s a violation of both our code of ethics and it’s illegal

3. Best part – Only working with “buyers” – so as a Realtor – if you’ve been working for years with Bernal buyers and they see this listing – the Realtor won’t cooperate with you.· $775000 Renovated Victorian Holly Park Home – photos (bernal heights) [Craigslist]
