Petition Tag - agents
Realtors are only given FBI background checks. First, local law enforcement does not always submit records to FBI, contrary to popular beliefs. Second, credit checks are not done on realtors so you can have a realtor who has over $10,000 in delinquent loans. Third, evictions are also not checked on realtors.
If a realtor doesn't have his/her financial house in order do you really expect them to do due diligence in selling or helping you purchase a home?
This petition to get the state to increase the background checks for all realtors including currently licensed realtors and if they fail his/her license is revoked.
THIS PETITION WILL BE CLOSED AT 9:00AM ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 9, 2008 AT WHICH TIME IT WILL BE PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION TO THE CCIAOR/CCIMLS BOARD OF DIRECTORS
On Monday November 24, 2008 sixteen members of the Cape Cod and Islands Association of Realtors assembled in Orleans to review the most recent developments of the CCIAOR/CCIMLS websites. Following are some of the questions discussed.
General questions and concerns:
• Did enough planning go into these web sites?
• What are the possible unintended consequences to CCIAOR/CCIMLS members?
• What is the primary objective?
• Whose interests are best served?
• These web sites will make it more difficult for agents to distinguish their Internet services from others.
Sales questions and concerns:
• Prospects may move away from the individual web sites of agents and agencies.
• Prospective buyers have little or no reason to register on a member’s web site.
• CCIAOR/CCIMLS is unfairly using membership dues to compete with the agents for prospect traffic.
• Agent/Agency web site investment of time, effort and treasure is wasted.
Rental questions and concerns:
• A highly publicized web site places the association in competition with the member's sites. Members spend a great deal of time and money on software and SEO. The members now have one more very powerful and strong competitor for rental cutomers.
• Rental listings are mostly non-exclusive. The new web sites will inevitably have the same property listed many times by different agencies with different rate schedules, availability calendars, etc. This will be confusing to the consumers and drive rental prices down.
Insurance agents are given dreams by the insurance companies. More than 95 % lose their agency before the expiry of the 5 years mandatory service as an agent. And there is no renewal commission for these 95%.
There is a simple strategy being adopted by the insurance companies of "Hire and Fire" and get business and make huge profits by not paying the renewal commission.
No one seems to take notice.
Is it justice??
We have on numerous occassions complained about our main gate either getting stuck or not working at all but for years the problem still has not been rectified.
We have been getting complaints about our cars or motorbikes being started up in the mornings before going to work by the residents at Unit 21. None of the other residents mind as they all work. We would like these unlawful complaints to stop. There have also been complaints of the children playing outside.
During the week the children are in there homes before 10:00pm and yet the residents at Unit 21 still complain and shout at the children. We have had instances where they have repremanded the children in a drunken state and many of the residents have witnessed it.
In clause 11.7 in the "Rosslee Agreement of Lease" it clearly states that "you may not cause or commit any nuisance of the property or cause any annoyance or discomfort to other tenants or occupiers of the building." These tenants are continuously inspecting our homes from outside our windows and causing 'discomfort' to the tenants and their children. The tenants are up in arms about the current situation as we all get along and have no complaints about starting our cars in the morning or at any other times.
At the moment most car owners and children are living in fear of the tenants at Unit 21 due to their unfair treatment and constant complaints.
Dear Mr. Buffett,
We, your fans, are asking for your help. The problem is the difficulty that your true fans have had in getting tickets to your concerts. Many fans stand in line for hours or spend hours on the phone and end up with no tickets. Ticket agents are able to get plenty of tickets before they even go on sale, yet we as your fans are not able to get tickets unless we pay the scalpers prices which range from $140-$600 for tickets with a face value of $60. Not to mention the orchestra and floor seats that scalpers sell for around $1500.
We realize that this problem is due in part to Ticketmaster. The only solution we have come up
with is to try and protest the actions of Ticketmaster by not buying any tickets from them. However, that would also mean we would never be able to see you and hear you in concert. We would like for you to look into trying to find a way to ensure that your fans are taken care of. We realize that this is a big undertaking, but some other performers have already tried different ways of doing this, so we know that it is possible to make a difference.
We ask that you please try to help you fans who have stuck with you through the
years and are now finding it difficult to pay $140.00 per ticket or face the thought of not spending our summers with you. We ask for you help for ourselves but also point out the fact that you are not seeing any of the money that the scalpers (ticket agents) are making on your name, talent and popularity. Taking some of the power away from Ticketmaster and the ticket agents will not only benefit your fans, it will benefit you.
