That Brokerage is one dumb Brokerage. Sure, legally I suppose what they're doing is OK... but wow... that's some dumbass way to get yourself never hired again.

Whats with these companies not thinking ahead to the future? Money now, and lose out on more for lost business because of dirty things like this.

What a F***ing joke, I understand if they take some paperwork/legal fee for their work done but they want the whole commission? Common.

The dumbest part about this is they represented the buyer and seller... so it's their own buyer who backed out...

I’m actually more interested in the prospective buyer....put down a $70K deposit and then simply disappeared?? Very suspenseful!

I hope Century 21 Seaside is enjoying the free (negative) publicity. Now we’ve all heard of them! Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Google reviews are taking a hit to. Companies dont think any farther than the next dollar they can achieve

Also dont know how to review properly when you have one of your own realtors giving you a 5 star review.

Facebook link is dead as well. Maybe trying some damage control.

Maybe the next news story will be, realtor drops lawsuit.

Good way to lose potentially millions of dollars in business with the bad publicity.

Typical degenerate realtor behavior.

What do they teach them in training? How to sell, and btw here are all the ways to sue your clients when you fail?

Google reviews are back up to 4, was 1 and half stars I think before this story even.

Reviewing online is not what it used to be

These type of stories is one real way so many folks despise dealing with realtors.

The high commission is one thing, but shady things like this is what riles me up.

I wouldn't lose any sleep if I never have to deal with any realtors ever again.
