Don’t respond to blind real estate help wanted ads

by Joe Zekas on 4/16/14

You’ll frequently see help wanted ads on Craigslist from real estate firms seeking to hire leasing agents or experienced brokers.

If the ad was placed on behalf of a licensed rental service or real estate broker and doesn’t name the firm, the ad is a violation of the Illinois Real Estate License Act.

The firm that placed the ad is either ignorant of its legal obligations or willfully ignoring them. In either case, it’s not a firm you want to consider joining. In a world that Google documents relentlessly, you might be permanently tainting your employment history and limiting your future options.
