A WORD OF CAUTION
When it comes to something so important as your real estate transaction, it is equally important that you know you're dealing with a licensed professional. Unfortunately, there are scam artists who give the real estate profession a bad name... you don't want to get caught dealing with those unscrupulous individuals.
All real estate professionals in New York must be licensed by the Department of State (DOS). You can click this link to the NYSDOS website and verify the authenticity of a licensee before you commit to working with someone who identifies themselves as a real estate broker or agent.
