If an investigator comes calling don’t be an “omerta”

I've had this happen to me when I knew better.  If the real estate commission investigator comes calling and asks you a question on a subject you know about don't be an omerta.  This could cost you your license and may involve some monetary problems to boot.  The meaning of "omerta": a policy or code of keeping silent about crimes and refusing to cooperate.  This is not a good thing not a good thing at all.  Join the group "wordsmith" on AR.  It's a great day to buy or sell a home.

Having been there and had that happen, I would not discuss anything with a real estate licensing investigator without audio and hopefully video tape of the conversation and that it be held in my attorney's office.

No offense; however, as you say this is our livelihood and there could be beaucoup bucks involved.

In a former life, an investigator indicated there was audio tape of our conversation and it had actually been destroyed in their normal erasing process so while he indicated the tape would be available to me and my attorney for our review , he knew it would be erased after it as transcribed and paraphrased....his was the only side of the conversation.

I remember that word - from reading the Godfather.

I agree about recording those conversations, however. You just better not trust some people.
