Let me clarify - I am not a real estate agent, so no, I am not "envious!"!

Also, by "promotion" I mean that the agent was made a manager of a branch.

I hope my question makes more sense now.

An agent who was found in violation of an article regarding honesty was put in charge of a branch office (where they
would be in charge of other agents).

If you knew that a real estate agent was held in an ethics violation for dishonesty, and was then PROMOTED by the real estate agency, would you trust that agency going forward?

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this question.


As long as they didn't steal money, the ethics violations don't really matter because you cannot trust *any* broker unless they are family or a close friend. The reason for this is that their interests are generally adverse to yours in building and closing a deal. For example, when a deal is being made, it's best to limit communication with them to things you would be comfortable saying to the counterparty for negotiation purposes because they will use any information they have to try to get the deal done (under any circumstances). If you have concerns or are working with actual deal mechanics you should speak to your lawyer. Keeping that in mind, brokers can (and should) be used as helpful gophers and babysitters. They can let you into condos or watch your apartment for you while potential buyers view it. They can also send you listings, but in this market you probably need to be proactive in finding listings yourself as soon as they go public.

every agent is their own business.

if an agent committed a violation against you, report them and let their real estate board decide how to deal with the situation.

whether or not they got a "promotion" is irrelevant. what does that even mean, a better commission split? if you are just envious of this person, find a different agency. you can always negotiate a better split, but not necessarily as many leads.

No, it isn't the one you thought. I'll give more detail on this at some point.
