In my opinion, Karen Bergin should lose her brokers license for her lack of ethics and unlawful real estate practices. I believe that Karen Bergin is a dirty, narcissistic woman who feels like she can muddy the title to someone's property without violating any code of ethics.
I base this on Karen Bergin's use of an illegal document as a means of holding my parents home hostage until her ransom demands were met. In using this tactic, Karen Bergin's true colors came through and it's my opinion that her criminal behavior needs to made available to the public. No "real estate professional" should ever set out to make a property unmarketable by muddying the title; and to do so should be punishable by law.
Once Karen Bergin had her illegally filed Affidavit of Vested Interest in place, she then proceeded to demand that my parents reimburse her for expenses that she claimed to have spent marketing their property. The only problem is, Karen Bergin demanded reimbursement of expenses which were never spent on marketing the listing agreement she had in place on the home.
In essence, Karen Bergin held this home hostage and blackmailed my parents for financial gain. Karen Bergin should lose her real estate license for extortion and unethical conduct.
BTW.... if you want to verify my claims, please feel free to visit www.recorder.cl
aycogov .com Once there, you can login as a guest (no password required) and search the real estate records for a business named RSB Realty. The illegal document filed by Karen Bergin and Linda Bobski is instrument #2007032423, dated 08/06/07, book #5778, page 125. You can pull it up, view the actual document and even print out a copy. There is no denying that this document served no purpose but to muddy the title to my parents property given that 8 different attorneys (licensed by the Missouri Bar) deemed it illegal. But when a bankrupt man has no financial means to defend himself in court, the use of this document by his broker and/or agent becomes extortion.
It is no different than if Karen Bergin herself was to hold a gun to my stepfather's head and scream: "YOU WILL EITHER PAY ME WHAT I DEMAND OR YOUR PROPERTY WILL NEVER SELL!"
Now tell me honestly, is that right? Or does this constitute unethical actions on behalf of Coldwell Banker, Karen Bergin, and Linda Bobski?
