How does it harm you to get an email?
Just hit delete and move on.

I really like your response, but I wouldn't have bothered with the reporting part.
The board and licensing authority probably have bigger fish to fry and the teeth in real estate law are so soft, nothing would happen if they did care.
The connection between how your removal request was ignored by the recruiter and the assumption that your requests would be similarly ignored by the broker is the big attention getter.
It should turn someone's lightbulb on, but probably won't.

I wouldn't sweat it and just hit delete. Not worth the energy.
Think this is an over reaction. If you don't like the email, mark it as spam and move on to more productive actions.
I get those all the time, and same results. I just hit delete....

I was about to answer exactly how Bob Crane did; so I defer to and agree with his response. Delete and move on. You can also set up a filter for specific e-mails to go straight to trash.
What do I think?
You have already OVER INVESTED in this activity.
Will you continue to throw more time into the hole to add to your time already wasted?
You have SOOOOO many absolute options to address this that clearly the issue has become an issue of pride.
Pride leads folks into faulty thinking.
KEEP IT and use it against their agents when you are in competition for a Listing !!!!!!!
They need to honor your request to be removed. Your response should work!
I would take it as a compliment, and laugh it off. A

You have got to give it to the brokerage that they are persistent. Isn't that the motto we are all to abide by...be persistent till one says YES?
I am sure those emails are automated...write him/her a nice email to be removed from their mailing list. I am sure they will comply.
Its your call but I would have just deleted and blocked. If the broker wants to waste time sending me e-mails it's his/her time thats being foolishly spent. I won't take my time composing a response.
David - I think they better not send you another email.
Good morning David. Every time my loan officers get recruited, it is a compliment to me. Just accept it as a compliment.
I like it, but must be careful not to burn a bridge u=you may want in the future
That might have been a little bit of overkill. Chances are you'll do business with her office - or try to - in the future.
David Barr it's just an email. We all send them out and are asked to remove people. We try to keep up but sometimes they are saved in formats we aren't aware exist. Opt out and send to spam if you like but don't insult, in my humble opinion.
I think you conveyed your thoughts and intentions well. I would guess you will get no further emails.
I envy you that you have the time in your schedule to get agitated over this, write the snarky email and then Post it on AR. What kind of validation are you seeking? It is 8:20 and I am sitting in on a meeting between my clients and the new home representative as they are writing an offer on new construction and then I have an hour drive home.
I agree; we get thm as well and I figure keep them coming, spending their advertising dollars. This will mean fewer bucks to promote their listings.
Why David, why not reply back and recruit him/her to Berkshire Hathaway and throw in a couple of Warren Buffetisms to boot????
Beat them at their game and they will leave you alone.
I do not become upset about such emails/mails/calls and would not waste my time.
You can do what the guy did to the NY Times, print it up, shoot holes in it, scan and email it back to them. 3:)
I get em all the time too . . . delete and imagine the above while you hit the eject button . . . smile!
The board likely has no jurisdiction and it's not a violation of any licensing. There are no laws that go after the individual spamming on a small scale. Your best bet is to setup a filter to block his email.
I see they change email addresses. Setup your filter to look for keywords in the body of the email. Also look into a "learning" filter like the baysian spam filters. Google uses these as does the Thunderbird email client. You can train it to recognize the "join my office" spam.
Good for you, David. Some folks just can't take a hint.
I think that the board and your state licensing authority would not handle such reporting by you since CAN-SPAM is not likely under their jurisdiction. You would need to report or do whatever actions that CAN-SPAM states.
That should work.
