If I receive an appraisal order for a sale transaction, can the realtor deny me access to the property? Say for instance because he is mad that I turned him into the state for calling my clients and trying to get appraisals reassigned?

I think that would be something else you could report to the state. I'd go to his superior and/or to the client. The days are numbered where the REALTOR or the MB can choose the appraiser that always hits the numbers, no questioned asked....

Hey, contact the seller and tell him/her/them that their agent is not allowing you to complete your job! That should get you in?

He is the "superior"
Owner/Broker
Thinks his poo smells like roses.

I would think the only person would could deny you access would be the owner of the property.

Have the other Realtor set it up. I have one Realb!tch who always blackballs me because I would not overlook peeling paint on one of her deals back in 1999.

Report it to who? No one gives a care what the Realtors do.

If he is a REALTOR®, you can probably file a complaint with your local association. If you are a member, see if your association has a grievance committee. Your biggest problem will be that the grievance committee will probably be stacked with his cronies. You may win the battle, but make a lot of unnecessary enemies.

It is really unfortunate that realtors guidelines are based on ethics. To most realtors in this area, ethic are like rocket science. I am surprised most of them made it out of 8th grade.
The realtor in this case is the owner/broker of the realty.
He is the buyer and seller agent.
Pretty convenient.
