As a Realtor, I appreciate the depths that Jason went to in order to uncover what was happening. Most often, peer to peer complaints go by the wayside but consumer complaints and investigations tend to hold weight. While dual agency and withholding a property from the NNRMLS (pocket listings) are not illegal they do border on unethical and may not hold the client’s best interest.
Thankfully, my brokerage, Keller Williams Group One Inc., doesn’t allow dual agency so we can focus on a single client’s need.
