When Realtors Attack

A follow up of a previous post on Travis at Gazelem's problem with his realtors. The 2005 Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of REALTORS® allows a Realtor to be charged with violating the Code of Ethics. The allegation has to refer to the violation of a specific Article of the Code. Others with legal experience would probably read this better than I but It seems to me that an ethics charge could be brought against Kristen Averett and James Reed of Prudential for violating Standard of Practice 1-4 of Article 1: REALTORS®, when seeking to become a buyer/tenant representative, shall not mislead buyers or tenants as to savings or other benefits that might be realized through use of the REALTOR®’s services. According to Travis' account, he chose Averett and Reed to buy and sell his homes in part because they promised to charge only 5%, not 6%. But then they presented him with a contract for 6%. Which they refused to change.

As every one knows there is always two (2) sides to every story. In this case this sounds like someone just trying to get something for nothing and not pay what he agreed on an signed a contract on. Dosnt pay to be dishonest and profess to be mormon and a family man etc...
