Q. I am a broker that specializes in property management. I know of a house in my area that have been on the market for a long time it is a short sale and the price hasn't changed in months. I would like to contact the owner not to get a listing but to see if she would be interested in renting the property since nothing is happening on the listing side apparently. Thoughts???

If you're a broker and the home is listed I believe you can contact the owner directly since you're offering services which are not in conflict with the listing.  Read the NAR Code of Ethics if in doubt.  Or, you can take the high road and contact the listing agent and find out if the seller would be amenable to renting and when the market improves and the tenant moves out, perhaps re-list with the current agent.  Play nice ;-)
