"Beware of Realtors"

All of you"open-minded," "tolerant," and "nonjudgmental" boomers should exercise caution when dealing with two Prudential, Fox and Roach realtors here in Margate. These realtors are Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon, and they are as oily as they come. The two of them teamed up with a convicted criminal, Bernie Madoff wannabe mortgage broker to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. These three high-fived it and yukked it up; they still point to me as proof that they're so slick they can unload even a toxic waste dump.

You want some real yuks? Check out stories on Mark Arbeit in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. Can you imagine the type of questions he was asking those poor schoolboys in the middle of the night? He is the kind of "Sales Professional" this Pru-Fox outfit turns loose on unsuspecting buyers and sellers in Margate. Steer clear of him and all Prudential, Fox realtors: They are not to be trusted!

"Mark Arbeit"

When my fiance and I started looking for a house last year, we had no idea where to start. We had printed some papers out from the Internet, and got lost looking for a listing of Mark Arbeits. We called him to clarify the directions, and we ended up making an appointment to meet up with him later that day. By the time we left Mark Arbeit’s office, we knew that he was the one that we needed to work with us. We had a ton of problems along the way, but Mark Arbeit went above and beyond what was expected of him to make sure that everything got worked out for us. He helped us find the house of our dreams that was also in our price range. No one else treated us with the respect or courtesy that Mark Arbeit did, and that is why we have more than the simple buyer/realtor relationship, we are friends. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and I always make sure that I have one of his business cards on me. Thanks again, Mark, for making all of our dreams come true!
