There are too many people who are trying to take advantage of the expanding real estate market. You have the right to know if you are dealing with a legitimate broker.

PropertyValues.us.org is launching a guide that will help their customers make sure their real estate agent is legitimate, the company said yesterday.
“A real estate agent can be the difference between someone getting a good deal on a property and getting ripped off,” a PropertyValues.us.org spokesman said. “The problem is that most people have no way of knowing at all if their real estate agent is legitimate or not. We want to help them with that.”
While most real estate agents are legitimate, PropertyValues.us.org has heard many stories about ones that are not, he said.
“Sometimes it's just a matter of them not having the proper experience to advise their customers,” the PropertyValues.us.org spokesman said. “But sometimes it's more sinister. We've heard stories of real estate agents working with sellers to inflate prices or hide serious problems with a property.”
The guide to ensuring a real estate agent is legitimate will be available on the members' area of PropertyValues.us.org, he said. It will then be made available on their social media sites and their blog, PropertyValuesBlog.us.org.
“Our goal is to make sure that everyone can figure out if their real estate agent is legitimate or not,” he said. “There are too many people who are trying to take advantage of the expanding real estate market. You have the right to know if you are dealing with a legitimate broker.”
PropertyValues.us.org was created to give people access to public records concerning the potential value of real estate.
