Prudential broker writes laws in one state, breaks in the next

I Just heard from an Exclusive Buyer's Agent out west who noticed something from their professional licensing bureau that caught her eye.

The Iowa licensing bureau fined a Nebraska broker and 5 of his agents $7,500 for practicing real estate in Iowa without an Iowa license. The company, a Prudential franchise, was licensed in Omaha, they were just doing business in Iowa.

Here is the interesting point:

The broker that was guilty in Iowa is a member of the real estate commission in Omaha! The guy helps write laws in Omaha and he breaks them in Iowa!

Exclusive Buyer Agent - now being faked by regular agents?

If you have been researching homes and home buying you may already know that the definition of "Exclusive Buyer Agent" is a company who only represents buyers, never sellers. They never take listings.

In Michigan there are some real estate agents who are falsely advertising "EBA" in hopes of tricking uneducated buyers. Well it turns out Michigan isn't the only place this is going on.

Home buying expert Julie Tuggle recently posted an article here that goes into some detail:
