The article suggests ways Realtor can take advatage of the refi boom to keep in touch with former clients to get new sales and referreals. Under the paragragh labeled "Leverage Relationship with Lenders," the following gem appeard:

    Liz,

    Why thank you for that comment. Just think if you joined the NAR you to would be part of a group that has as much if not more power and influence than the MBA.

    Think about it.

    Geeeez

    Guess the appraisers should be selling and the sales agents should be certifying the values.

    I don't know about the rest of the country, but here, locally, if you want to get MLS, you have to join NAR. I've been a member of NAR since 1986, even have my GRI. I don't see where they do THAT much for appraisers.
    But that's a different discussion for a different time.

    Can you imagine some Realtor calling you up to "discuss" a refinance appraisal you did for a completely different client? It's not just that it is unethical, it's freaking none of their #%#@$%$ business!!!

    And this Stacy person has just published this behavior in a magazine. AND APPARENTLY, THE APPRAISER RAISED THE VALUE!!!!! :angry:

    The appraisal biz is currently OVERLOADED with unethical and incompetent appraisers. Many are at fault for this situation, including NAR.
