My vendetta is the only vehicle I have to make sure this doesn't happen to another buyer. Funny, we haven't been down to FL (business) and had a friend swing by to check out the Condo. Guess what? The "seller agent" still hasn't removed (its been 4 months) the "realestate key lock box" hanging on the door knob. Maybe she has a vendetta against me or is simply incompentent?

Realtors depend on their reputation and, ultimately, unethical actions will be their demise.
I know you are right - to let it go. But trust me - I have nothing to worry about libel since I documented every step of the way and have said nothing I can't prove with documentation. Also, review everything each step of the way is how we documentated everything the seller's agent did.

I agree after I file with the state.

Every county has a 'Board of Realtors'. File the complaint in the county where the agent operates.
Thanks!

To file a complaint against a Florida licensed real estate agent or broker, go to the website of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation -- they have an online complaint process. You'll need to have copies of all relevant documentation and specific information for your complaint. The Department will review your complaint, and if you have submitted evidence that there was a violation of state law or administrative rules, the Department will conduct an investigation and follow through with the disciplinary process.

Vague claims of unprofessionalism or rudeness will not generate an investigation. The Department has to be convinced from the evidence you provide that there was probably a violation of state law.

Go to DBPR: Home Page - Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation and follow the links to file a complaint.
Thanks!

I would think that the acting manager of the office should have access to the lockbox for its removal. If the manager does not take it off, I would suggest telling them that you will have a locksmith come and have the service billed to the office.

We also contacted the headquarter (national chain) customer service representative who contacted the agency but also never got a response. She finally told us to call the office manager (who signed for our formal complaint). So, we are now looking for suggestions - what would you do next?
You can go on line to DBPR: Home Page - Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Follow prompts to get to real estate licensee. You can search by name. Onsite you can make report and or phone number where you can call.

All agents are under the Department of Professional Regulation , Division of Real Estate.Address is 1940 N Monroe Street, Tallahassee.32399-0783 Write or call. so you now have 3 ways to report.

Hope this was helpful. It is agent like this that give the industry a bad name, I have had my license 31 years here in Florida and to valuable to lose & contracts are legal documents. Thank you for wanting to report, we hold ourselves out to the public and should be responsible.
