Don't trust this real estate brokerage!


From PIX11:

Jaclin Osan admits she’s been too trusting.

She responded to an ad on apartments.com and liked a place in Queens. A guy she knew as Jason showed it to her. His real name is actually Joe Chyla. He was associated with a real estate brokerage called Incmobilia. Being so trusting, Jaclin gave Jason a $1,900 deposit. Cash.

But soon afterwards, Jaclin says Jason told her the landlord wanted a year’s rent up front. She decided she wanted her deposit back. Jason/Joe told her Incmobilia had the money. And Incmobilia gave her a run around. She says a woman named Michelle Wiser told her Jason didn’t work for Incmobilia.

So, she got in touch with the head of the company. But it was more run around.

This nonsense will only stop when 10 year prison sentences are handed out to these predators

Caveat Emptor!

Honestly. Giving someone you just met cash is just silly. Guys (and groups) like this stay in business because, as PT Barnum is alleged to have said: "There's a sucker born every minute".

Also, beware of news sources that write "gave her a run around" when they mean "gave her the runaround."

Or when someone unmercifully beats the shit out of the so called agent.

Again, in this fucked up city, why does it take a media show to get this woman's money back from some slime bucket real estate place. AND of course this will happen over and over and over again. AND where is the Public Advocate office, isn't this the type of shit that useless office is to handle.

Granted the woman should have never give cash, but this is the type of crap that goes on and no one in power does anything about.

Manhattan realtors are the worst. For the longest time, they even fought MLS. They are loud, obnoxious, and waste so much money on their egos.

Bunch of criminals all of them. One of the rare instances where a criminal can get a license to deal with large sums of money and lie to people.

Ask any real estate agent, “Is this a good neighborhood?” But don't expect to ever a straight answer. Certain important details about a neighborhood or community can violate the Fair Housing Act and all the PC bullshit Obama added. Its even worse for prospective homebuyers who get tight-lipped answers from agents.

I dont trust any of them and its why I had no choice but go with AirBnB.

Legally, real estate agents are not allowed to answer the question "is this a good neighborhood?"
It's considered steering.
