Default realtor complaint

Is there a way to make a complaint against a realtor's license? A realtor "accidentally" stole property from me and returned it damaged and doesnt feel she is responsible for making restitution for the damages caused. (she was working as a realtor when this occured, not working for me though). I am located in Suffolk County NY

Here is where you find the complaint form:

Consumer Complaint

Click on the link for a PDF of the complaint form.

Although (a) if she's not currently working in real estate and doesn't plan to go back to it, I don't think getting in trouble with the Dept. of State will matter to her and (b) this may not be a matter for them (as someone else posted, we need more details).

Another thing you could do is sue her in Small Claims Court.

I think there's some kind of Realtor's Assn, too. Some of them have that wooden plaque with the gold plate on it that says something about being a member of The NYS Board of Realtors or some such thing. If I were you I'd do a web search for some kind of association like that.

This is most likely a private matter with nothing to do with the person being a realtor. This is just someone trying to "get even" by involving a professional's license.

If you truly have a complaint against a real estate agent (acting in such capacity) the best way to resolve it is to contact the agent's broker. Just call up their office and ask to speak to the broker. That will resolve most matters as legally, brokers are responsible for all actions of their agents, so brokers do not like to see formal complaints filed.

If you don't get satisfaction there, you can contact Long Island Board of Realtors.

Lastly, contact the licensing division of New York State Department of State.

If you can give some more detail, I might be able to better direct you. I'm not sure how someone "accidentally" steals property.
