Defrauded by Realtor

Case Overview

$90,000 verdict for an elderly woman defrauded by her realtor.  No offer before verdict.

Case Summary

Her agent duped her into signing an outrageous commission agreement, made no efforts to list her home on the open market, and instead attempted to trick her into selling at a greatly reduced price to one of his other clients.  Actual damages were only a few thousand dollars in lost mortgage amounts.  Penalties greatly expanded the verdict.
