Defending honest Realtors

I am owner and broker of record of Capers Real Estate in Butler and a member of the National Association of Realtors for 55 years.

Neither I nor any agent in my office have ever colluded with a house inspector, appraiser, financial entity or any one else in pursuit of a closing.

In my opinion, "Inspecting the Inspectors" Oct. 29 is ridiculously biased.

Undoubtedly, just as in any other profession, there are agents who take unfair advantage of people who rely on them for guidance and assistance. Your article insinuates that this practice is rampant, rather than being the exception to the norm.

I take great pride in that I operate my real estate business with honesty and integrity. I encourage my clients and/or customers to make informed decisions. I do not like surprises and do not want any person involved in a transaction to be faced with unexpected expenses. But I never have and never will guide someone into a choice that results only for my benefit.

This Realtor is confident that at the end of the day he gave the buyers and sellers honest and reliable advice to make their own decisions -- sale or not.
