Ethics Case

ETHICS CASE :
 
About a month ago, an associate called me to share an experience he had with another Licensed Broker from his Association.  Both have never dealt prior to this transaction.
 
That Broker called him to inquire about his listing so he gave that Broker all the details including the exact address of the property.  That Broker acknowledged the listing verbally over the phone.  When it was time to view the property, the Broker assigned the viewing to his / her staff.  My associate is very trusting and didn’t bother to have the staff signed a written acknowledgement that the property was viewed. 
 
A couple of weeks went by and the Owner advised my Associate that there was this Broker that inquired about the property through a Facebook account.  
 
Long story short, that Licensed Broker wanted to buy the property thus bypassing my associate who gave details and showed the property.  A NET deal was offered by that Licensed Broker and the deal is now pending that issue as fortunately the Owner is ethical enough to respect the verbal registration of name by my associate.
 
Moral Lesson :  Always have something in writing and trust no one you’ve never dealt with before ( of course there are exemptions to the rule ) as We are only Human and prone to Temptation.  That Licensed Broker will get his / her karma sooner or later and word will get around not to deal with that Individual who doesn’t  respect and follow the Golden Rule :  “Do Unto Others What you Don’t Want Others to Do unto You”. 
 
My two cents worth !
