I am so sorry that you are thinking of suing a realtor. I know how upsetting this must be. Do you just want to know what kind of lawyer you need to represent you? The reason why I am asking is that I want to provide you with the best answer.

I’m so sorry. You can use a civil litigation attorney to sue a realtor. Did you sign a contract with the realtor?

Customer

You’re welcome.

Customer
I would like to sue him for taking sides in the divorce I was involved in at the time. He's supposed to be a neutral party, and he def was not. I was forced by the court to sign the sales documents BECAUSE the real estate agent was manipulated by my husband to write an affidavit against me. The content of the affidavit in and of itself was benign. It simply addressed questions I asked. But it was used against me, and I was never given an opportunity to explain my side of the story before a ruling was made in my husbands favor. My attorney told me it was because of that affidavit, and I suspect what the opposing party told the judge about me. There is also the timing of the affidavit and when it was sent in. He sent it when my husband was trying to establish control of the house sale, the house had an offer already the day prior (Lots of offers actually) but my husband was afraid I would not accept one, because everyone knew I did not want to sell the home - I was following orders...So Steve's affidavit (irrelevant as it was) was used to back up a claim that I had not shown my home that weekend when I did - the realtor had the house to himself all weekend while I stayed in a motel room with the pets...(hope that makes sense)

I am so sorry to hear this. I know how upsetting this must be. I’m not sure if you would really have a claim against him. However, you could try and sue him for any damages that you feel occurred because he submitted the affidavit. I am so sorry.

I'll explain one more thing : My attorney at the time is not the attorney that I have now BTW...The motion to get the house in my husband's control was done in an emergency hearing where only they and the judge were involved.
Customer
I lost the house because of that affidavit. I would like sue him for that. In addiction, he knew my husband was mentally ill at the time he wanted to sell the home...
Customer
The realtor was desperate for a sale because he was not doing well in the business...He pushed it and me very hard...

I see. Generally, You could dry and bring a civil action.  it would start by filing a complaint and you would have to prove that the affidavit was the direct cause of your damages. Ultimately, it would be up to the judge to decide.

I am so sorry.

Customer
Ok ! That helps me a lot ! Would the mental illness component help anything ?

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

You could mention it in there as well. I’m so sorry that this happened.

Customer
I really appreciate your time and your kindness... That's enough for me to at least go talk to a civil attorney about it. Thanks so much !
