It seems like they will make anybody in Florida a real estate agent or mortgage broker. All buyers and sellers beware and hire an attorney for any transaction.

I agree with you and hope that they aren't convicted felons too? , but I trust them more since they get paid anyway and not only to get you to close the deal as mortgage brokers and realtors have to do before they get their pay check.

The Mayor of Washington D.C. was caught smoking crack with a hooker and then re elected.
Point being is that there are bad seeds in every walk of life.
Someone please point out one line of work without bad seeds.

That is true, but attorneys are reguired to have a bachelors degree and a juris doctorate to be allowed to sit for the bar exam and must pass a rigorous background check, even to the point of explaining NSF checks. I know because my friend went through it. So after spending years of education an attorney is less likely to risk doing something stupid that would make them throw away their education and future.

Most real estate agents are high school graduates at best so if they lose their license they could always go work in something else, and they would not lose a thing.

I know, and after all when you ask one legal question (which is what you really need in a deal like buying a house) they can't answer it because they don't want to be held liable so you really need a good real estate lawyer!

That is such an ignorant statement. Do you mind explaining where you came up with your facts are are you just making them up?
