I don't think I want to have my opinions about any specific home in a public forum. I don't offer certain opinions to my own clients--afterall, it's not my opinion that counts, but theirs.

Thank you for the offer, but judging by the sample site it is not something that would interest me or fit in with my business model.

Reviews/opinions+real estate agents = treading in very dangerous territory. You will soon find this out whether it's real estate agents reviewing homes listed by other agents, or real estate agents (or a 3rd party) reviewing each other.

I've already viewed your site and have seen many possible red flags, mostly COE and HUD violations. Luckily you're still small enough and haven't caught the eye of TPTB that would bother to enforce those violations. 

I would strongly advise you to at least put disclaimers stating the opinions expressed by the real estate agents on your site are strictly their own and in no way reflect on you or the web site. Will that absolve you from any legal action? Maybe not, but at least you might have a little protection.

Thanks for the offer - it looks like it can become too much of a review of properties as well as agent which I would prefer not to do or be involved with.

When I find an agent bad mouthing me or one of my listings they'll be in for a rude awakeninng

It's not legal in my state to "share my insights" on a property I don't have listed unless I have use IDX or have the sellers written permission to advertise it.

Revised Response....I'd be (and now NOT BE)   very interested in more details was my first response until I actually looked at what is it in debth.  This is NOT...what I would do, but each to their own.  I certainly am not going to review any other agents listings nor will I allow my listings to be reviewed by anyone.

Interesting, unfortunately I could not see it in action, James' website is not formating well in firefox, nearly unreadable.

Give me a call in a few months I may be able to help you.
