Real estate agents can lose their license or suffer other consequences for unethical behavior. For example, agents cannot engage in false advertising. Such conduct would warrant some kind of legal consequence from the agent's state's governing body.False advertising consists of misrepresenting goods or services. Often, it entails misrepresenting qualities of a property. For example, an agent might include a 3ft-tall dirt-floor cellar in the square footage of a home, even though it does not provide living space. As a consequence, that agent could be subject to fines, revocation or suspension of her license, or some other consequence as outlined in the state's code.
