Now most of realize that Craigslist has it's good points and it's bad. Rental scams have been widely publicized and we all need to approach posting carefully. However this evening as I was looking through Craigslist the advertising violations by agents actually made me feel ill.
In one case a single agent had posted at least 8 advertisements, cryptic at best, with NO identification of their status as a Realtor®, their brokerage or address. They also had stolen borrowed 8 listings from other agents as well as their photos from the MLS. Yet unlike a few other agents they made the mistake of using their name as part of their email address and it was an agent's name I recognized. Just to be sure I checked our on-line real estate licensing information to see if they still had a current license.
Its tough enough in our current market to continue to show our value to buyers and sellers. When agents blatantly disregard the rules we all agree to work by it makes us all look bad. If you find major violations on Craiglist what do you do? Do you contact the agent? Do you call their broker? Do you report them to your local association? Just curious.
