An agent in the Prairies will pay for the apparent bad-mouthing of a competing sales rep, agent in a rare case by the province’s Real Estate Commission.

    So, what were the penalties?

    $2000 fine. And public humiliation.

    I guess that does hurt the wallet and professional image. Mind you, most complaints similar to the above are simply ignored by the offending agents Broker. In one case in our area, the broker basically threatened the offended agent with a promise of "not showing anything you have".
    Where's the justice? In the above case, there was an email chain. In most cases, just mouthy, unprofessional slugs and opportunistic brokers.
