Prudential Fox And Roach - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Fox in the Henhouse!!!

A realtor from this office was just appointed to NJ's Real Estate Commission. Yeah, that ought to work out well for the public. Pru-Fox already gets whatever it wants from this commission, and now, it will get only worse. Hey-- I speak from experience. Consider the following. There was a Pru-Fox realtor on each end of my deal for a house that sat over a leaking underground oil tank. Both work in Pru-Fox's Margate, NJ office: Mark Arbeit represented me and my wife; Lou Solomon represented my seller, a doughy, *** mortgage broker. Anyway, the MLS listing for my place explicitly indicated that Doughboy had completed a standard NJ Seller's Disclosure statement, a good part of which covers underground tanks. When I discovered the tank beneath my place nine days after closing, I asked Mr. Arbeit to secure for me a copy of the disclosure statement to which the MLS description referred. Without even checking with Solomon, he said, "Whoopsie," and told me there was no statement. When I asked about the reference to it in the MLS description, Mr. Arbeit replied, "Oh, that's just a typo. Happens all the time." I said, "Huh?" and he answered, "Typo! Typo! Read my lips, 'T-Y-P-O,' typo! There never was any form." Well, I thought about that for maybe half a day and got back to him with a request that he secure for me just a copy of the list of prospective buyers who had been through my place. I know that, in order to protect their commissions, realtors scrupulously keep records of who goes through their listings. I also was sure that at least one "looker" who had been through my place learned about the tank and alerted the seller and/or Solomon to it. When I asked Mr. Arbeit to get for me a copy of the list for my place, he replied-- again, with consulting Solomon, "There is no such list. NO REALTOR keeps track of who goes through his or her listings!" Believe that? I didn't. So I went to NJ's Real Estate Commission with a complaint about Mr. Arbeit and Mr. Solomon. The Commission's response? It took all of about a month for it to laugh off the complaint. This gets better, though. A little while later, I stumbled across some articles about Mr. Arbeit in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25, and 26, 1987. It seems that, before he was "Realtor to the Stars," he was an assistant principal at The Terraset Elementary School down in Virginia. He was bounced out of that post, though, and stripped of his VA teaching credentials, when it came to light that he had been convicted of offering a boy money to pose nude for him, and that he was paying little boys to engage in bizarre telephone conversations with him in the middle of the night. Well, realtors in NJ are supposed to possess "good character," so I took the articles to NJ's Real Estate Commission and asked it to revoke Mr. Arbeit's realtor's license on grounds that he lacked "good character." The Commission's response? Once again it laughed me off, this time implying that I was crazy to think that Mr. Arbeit's "troubles" in VA had any bearing on the issue whether he possessed "good character." Oh, well. The point of this post is to tell anyone who buys or sells a home with a Pru-Fox realtor not to expect any action from NJ's Real Estate Commission when the Pru-Fox realtor engages in the typical, shady shenanigans that are always involved in any deal with which Pru-Fox is connected. There's now a proverbial "fox" watching the "henhouse," so buyer-- and seller-- beware!

How do such individuals as *** Arbeit and "The Real Estate Tycoon/Waitress Brittani Federa" manage even to get licensed in NJ? .

.

. What a racket!

Mark Arbeit???? Why would you want even to be in the same room with a guy whose nickname is Skid Mark????

. .

. Man!

place smells like a corral

Now that *** Arbeit has jumped to Long & Foster, would NJ's Real Estate Commission PLEASE revoke his license? :sigh

#751897

How could NJ's Real Estate Commission totally blow off a complaint that Pru-Fox's Dee Kraemer falsely held out herself in writing as having 25+ years of experience as a "licensed" realtor? It was an open-and-shut case of false advertising.

. . . What?

Did somebody make a call? Who? . .

.

Don't tell me Warren Buffett!!!! :(

#737520

That Arbeit in Margate, NJ puts up on Zillow one-half dozen testimonials to himself over the course of a few days. Readers are supposed to believe that they all came from real clients who just spontaneously decided at the same time to heap praise on *** .

. . Please. If those five-star reviews don't convince you that Arbeit will stoop to fraud in order to push his listings, then I guess nothing will.

Do these Pru-Fox realtors really think we're too *** to notice things like the timing of these testimonials to *** Man.

Let them know that we're not, folks! :p

#726786

Why was Pru-Fox able to claim for about ten months that Doreen Kraemer had been a licensed realtor for 25+ years????? This is the kind of in-your-face lie that this outfit gets away with.

These lies hurt not only the public but also honest realtors. . . .

Moral of the story? Don't believe a word in any Pru-Fox advertisement.

It's that simpole. :p

PruFox Roach - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Brigantine, NJ: Steer Clear!

Yo, people: You're thinking of buying or selling with Pru-Fox? Don't do it! I dealt with two Pru-Fox "Sales Professionals" from the nearby Margate, NJ office-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and was burned big time. These two guys teamed up with a convicted *** mortgage broker to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. The three of them thought it was a laugh riot; they whooped it up after closing, with high-fives and "Nancy Boy" drinks all around, told other "Real Estate Professionals" in the area that I'm proof they're so smart and slick they can unload even a toxic waste dump. All right. You want a real laugh riot? Well, if so, then consider the following. Arbeit's smart and slick? Perhaps. But not so smart and slick as to avoid being caught in some shenanigans with little schoolboys down at Terraset Elementary School in Virginia. Read all about it in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. What could Pru-Fox be thinking when it pushes this guy as "the face of Pru-Fox" at the Jersey Shore? doesn't Pru-Fox do anything to vet its realtors? Solomon? He's slick, that's for sure. He has the looks and morals of a real reptile! Everything about this guy is bogus: His smile; his laid back, "surfer dude" persona; his expertise; his year-'round tan. This fellow knew my wife's real "surfer dude" sons for 15+ years, and he still stuck it to her and me with a vengeance and a smirk. Imagine what he does to buyers and sellers he doesn't know! How 'bout these guys' mortgage broker buddy? He's a real piece of work. He struts around town telling anybody who'll listen that he's an Atlantic City "High Roller" and irresistible to women. High roller? Not really. In fact, he's banned from entering all of AC's casinos. Irresistible to women? Well, I suppose he qualifies as that among Margate, NJ's real estate community: He was caught in a "Catch a Predator"-type sting run by some sheriff out of Florida; he thought he was seducing a 14-year old child but actually was communicating with some 54-year old deputy. Man, I wish I could have seen this predator's smug face at the moment he realized he was busted! Yeah, he's smart and slick. The bottom line? Do you really want to tangle up your real estate dealings with the types of scoundrels with whom I dealt? If not, then steer clear of all Pru-Fox offices!

PruFox - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Smithville, NJ: Steer Clear!!

Yo, folks: You're thinking of dealing with Pru-Fox to buy or sell a home? Don't do it! I dealt with two "Sales Professionals" from Pru-Fox's nearby Margate, NJ office and was burned big time. The two are Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon; they teamed up with Solomon's convicted criminal, Bernie Madoff-wannabe, mortgage broker pal to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. These three "Real Estate Professionals" had a good laugh at me after closing: High-fives and chocolate martinis all around; much chuckling and boasting about how they're so smart and slick they can unload even a toxic waste dump. All right. You want some real laughs and chuckles? Well, consider the following. You're going to trust Arbeit? Sure, the little boys and their parents at Virginia's Terraset Elementary School did, and you can read about how that worked out for them in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. Bizarre phone calls with little boys in the middle of the night??? Offering a child money to pose nude for him??? For crying out loud, why would Pru-Fox think it's a great idea to make this Arbeit its "Poster Boy" for Pru-Fox at the Jersey Shore? Doesn't Pru-Fox do anything to vet its Superstar Realtors? Does Pru-Fox really think the locals are so clueless that we'd never stumble across stories about this predator's past? Man!!! How 'bout Solomon? Everything about this guy is bogus: His smile; his year-'round tan; his expertise; his easygoing, "surfer dude" persona. The dude has the looks and ethics of a real reptile. He knew my wife's two "surfer dude" sons for 15+ years and still stuck it to me and her with a vengeance and a smirk! Imagine what he does to buyers and sellers he doesn't know! Oh, yeah-- what about these realtors' mortgage broker buddy? This guy's a real piece of work. He struts around town telling anyone who will listen that he's an Atlantic City "High Roller" and irresistible to women. He's a High Roller?? Not really. In fact, he's been banned from entering all of AC's casinos. He's irresistible to women?? Uh, . . . nope! Actually, he was busted in a "Catch a Predator"-type, on-line sting run by some sheriff out of Florida. Boy, I would have paid money to see the expression on this dude's smug face when he realized that the person he was trying to seduce wasn't a 14-year old child but a 54-year old deputy with a heavy southern drawl! Bottom line, people? Do you really want to tangle up your real estate dealings with rogues like the three with whom I dealt? If not, then steer clear of all Pru-Fox offices!!!

The BHHS/Fox & Roach realtors now trashing old *** Arbeit really prove two things: First, Jimbo was absolutely right about Arbeit; second, these realtors can be virulently loyal to you one day and viciously attack you the next. .

Prudential Fox And Roach - Prudential, Fox and Roach, Yardley, PA: Pit of Vipers!

Yo, folks: Stay away from Pru-Fox offices; they are real pits of vipers. I dealt with two "Sales Professionals" from Pru-Fox's Margate, NJ office-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and was burned badly. These two teamed up with Solomon's mortgage broker, *** pal to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. The three of them had a good laugh about it after closing: high-fives and "Nancy Boy" drinks all around; plenty of loud chatter about the fact that they're so smart and slick they can easily unload even a toxic waste dump. OK. You want some real good laughs? Consider the following. Arbeit's smart and slick? Perhaps. But apparently not so much as he thinks. He actually thought he could blow into town, wantonly bamboozle a few locals, and keep under wraps forever stories about him and little schoolboys reported in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. Cheese and crackers! Doesn't Pru-Fox do anything to vet its ranks of realtors? Do you really want to give guys like this Arbeit the run of your place? What could Pru-Fox possibly have been thinking when it made Arbeit its "Poster Boy" for Pru-Fox at the Jersey Shore? Obviously, Pru-Fox thinks of nothing but the business this Arbeit manages to bring in. Solomon? This loser failed at every endeavor he ever tried before signing on as a Pru-Fox realtor. He's your typical Pru-Fox "Real Estate Professional": Sports a gnarly, year-'round tan; lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines; puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information he later laughingly admits is false; and represents convicted criminals. The dude has the looks and morals of a real reptile. Just take a look at him, and ask yourself, "What type of outfit employs serpents like this guy?" Solomon's *** buddy? He's smart and slick, all right; he struts around town boasting that he's an Atlantic City "High Roller" and irresistible to women. High Roller? Don't think so. He's actually banned from entering AC's casinos. Irresistible to women? Well, you tell me. This clown was busted in a "Catch a Predator"-type sting run by some sheriff out of Florida. He thought he was seducing a 14-year old child on-line who turned out actually to be a 54-year old deputy. Yeah. He's smart and slick, all right. Just ask Arbeit and Solomon. They'll happily vouch for this guy. Listen, people-- do you really want to tangle up your real estate dealings with scoundrels like these three? If not, then steer clear of Pru-Fox offices. They're real pits of vipers!

Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Fox And Roach Realtors - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Malvern, PA: Dishonest, Ruthless, Arrogant & Twisted!

Yo, people: Don't deal with Pru-Fox "Sales Professionals." I dealt with two from the Margate, NJ office-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and regret it to this day. These two realtors teamed up with a doughy *** mortgage broker to stick me with the mortgage broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. After closing, these three "Real Estate Professionals" boasted around town about how slick and smart they were, and about how *** I was. OK. I'm ***. But I'm not so *** as to keep my mouth shut about these thieves. You want ***? How *** is this Arbeit to think he could blow into town and keep under wraps forever stories about him and little schoolboys reported in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987? His Pru-Fox colleagues say his past proves he's some Roman Polanski-type artiste; I say it proves he's one twisted dude who never should have been granted an NJ realtor's license. I also advise you to stay far away from him. Doesn't Pru-Fox do anything to vet its realtors?? How 'bout Solomon? This guy knew my wife's surfer dude sons for 15+ years. Yet he still stuck it to me and her with a vengeance. Everything about the guy is bogus: Smile, expertise, tan, surfing. Among other things, he puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information he later laughingly admits is false, he represents convicted criminals, he lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines; and he sports a gnarly, year-'round tan. He's disgusting. He has the looks and ethics of a real reptile. These realtors' mortgage broker buddy? He's an Atlantic City "high roller," who also happens to be the "go to guy" for all the compulsive gamblers in the mortgage rackets at the shore. He fancies himself a ladies' man and tried to arrange over the internet a "hook-up" between him and someone he thought was a 14-year old child in Florida. Whoopsie!!! The 14-year old child turned out actually to be a 54-year old sheriff's deputy. This self-proclaimed "real man of genius" fell for that? And he and his pals call me ***? I could go on about these three, but I think you get the idea. Do you really want to become tangled up with dishonest, ruthless, arrogant and twisted scoundrels like these guys? If not, then don't deal with Pru-Fox!

Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Fox And Roach Realtors - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Philadelphia, PA: Oily as They Come!!!

Yo, folks: Don't deal with any "Sales Professionals" from Pru-Fox. I dealt with two from Pru-Fox's Margate, NJ office-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and regret it to this day. These two gentlemen teamed up with a doughy *** mortgage broker to stick me the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. The three of them yukked it up and high-fived it after closing over a few "Nancy Boy" drinks by the bay; I've heard that they point to me as proof they are so slick and so smart they can unload even a toxic waste dump. OK. Do you want some REAL yuks? If so, then read in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987 about how Mr. Arbeit was bounced from his position as an assistant elementary school principal at the Terraset School in Virginia. He refused to resign even after it came to light that he was convicted of offering a boy money to pose nude for him; he pulled a 180* and got out of town, though, once a raft of little boys came forward with tales of his absolutely bizarre phone calls with them in the middle of the night. Geeez! What's this guy's problem? And why does Pru-Fox give degenerates like him unrestricted access to your home and your sons' bedrooms? Pru-Fox obviously does NOTHING to vet its realtors. How 'bout Solomon? The guy has the looks and morals of a real reptile. This guy knew my wife's surfer dude sons for 15 years and still stuck it to us! And hard! Imagine what he'll do to you! The POS is your typical Pru-Fox realtor: Represents convicted criminals; lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines; sports a gnarly, year-'round tan; and puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information he later laughs at you for actually believing. His Pru-Fox colleagues call him "Sweet Lou." Figures. Oh, yeah-- what about these guys' dumpy mortgage broker buddy? This clown is a "Big Time" Atlantic City high-roller. He's the "go to guy" for all the chronic gamblers in the mortgage rackets at the shore. But he's really not so smart as he and all his Pru-Fox pals insist that he is. I mean, after all, he was busted in a "Catch a Predator"-type sting run by some sheriff out of Florida. He thought the person with whom he was going to do the "hook up" was a 14-year old girl; but the the person turned out to be a 54-year old deputy with a southern drawl. So, come on, how smart can the guy be? Man, I would have loved to see the look on this joker's face when he realized he was busted! Look-- I could go on about al three of these "Real Estate Professionals," but I think you get the point. Do you really want to tangle up yourself with these types of scoundrels? If not, then stay away from Pru-Fox. The outfit is as oily as they come!!!!

Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Fox And Roach Realtors - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Ocean City, NJ: Steer Clear!!

Yo, folks: Steer clear of Prudential, Fox & Roach in Ocean City, NJ. I dealt with two Pru-Fox realtors from the nearby Margate, NJ office and regret it to this day. The two with whom I dealt are Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon; these two "Sales Professionals" teamed up with a dumpy, convicted criminal mortgage broker to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. The three of them had a good laugh at me after closing; my name's still a punch line among all the "Real Estate Professionals" in the area. OK. You want a REALLY good laugh? Read in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987 about how Mr. Arbeit was bounced from his position as an assistant principal at Terraset Elementary School in Virginia. Good grief! Offering a boy money to pose nude for him? Eerie phone calls with little boys in the middle of the night? What's this dude's problem? You'd think Pru-Fox would do something to vet its realtors, but the outfit obviously does not. Pru-Fox wants you just to give guys like this Arbeit the run of your place. Well, go ahead, if you want. How 'bout Solomon? His Pru-Fox colleagues call him "Sweet Lou." I don't know why. He's your typical Pru-Fox realtor: Sports a gnarly, year-'round tan; represents convicted criminals; puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information he later laughingly admits is false; and lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines. Dude has the looks and morals of a real reptile. Deal with him at your peril. What about these realtors' mortgage broker buddy? The guy fancies himself an Atlantic City "high roller" and was busted in a "Catch a Predator"-type sting run out of Florida by some sheriff. I would have paid good money to see the look on this joker's face when he learned that the 14-year old child with whom he planned to do the "hook up" was actually some big, 54-year old deputy with a southern drawl! Listen-- I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Do you really want to get tangled up with scoundrels like these? If not, then steer clear of Pru-Fox!!!!

*** Arbeit jumped to Long & Foster and took along wit him at least one of his BHHS/Fox & Roach cohorts. So what to do?

That's easy: Avoid both Long & Foster AND BHHS/Fox & Roach. Clearly either outfit does anything to vet its realtors.

Darrrrr, that's "WITH him" and "Clearly, NEITHER outfit." . .

. Haste makes waste.

I'll bet that one of these money-grubbin' "Real Estate Professionals" wrote that note ordering the old disabled guy to use his driveway. .

We should put out a reward for that realtor's ID! He or she is wayyyyy too cowardly to own up to it.

How about this: The very same BHHS/Fox & Roach "Sales Professionals" who were savaging and ridiculing me for daring to speak the truth about *** Arbeit are now out there viciously whispering their own nasty tales about him! Man!

These realtors will pull a 180* on you at the drop of a hat! . . .

Moral of the story?

Stay away from former AND current BHHS/Fox & Roach realtors!!!!!

Prudential Fox And Roach - Prudential, Fox & Roach, Southampton, PA: Bad News!!!

Stay away from Pru-Fox "Sales Professionals." I dealt with two from Pru-Fox's Margate, NJ office-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and regret it to this day. These two teamed up with a dumpy convicted *** to stick me with the ***'s house over a leaking underground oil tank. The three of them yukked it up and high-fived it over a few "Nancy Boy" drinks; the realtors point to me as proof that they're so smart and slick they can unload even a toxic waste dump. OK. You want some real yuks? Read up on how Arbeit was bounced from his post as an assistant elementary school principal in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. Bizarre calls to little boys in the middle of the night? Offering a boy money to pose nude for him? Doesn't Pru-Fox do anything to vet its realtors? Pru-Fox wants you to give guys like this the run of your place? Well, good luck to you and yours! How about Solomon? The dude has the looks and morals of a real reptile. Along with that, he puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information he later laughingly admits is false and lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines. Everything about the guy is bogus: Smile; tan; hair; surfing; expertise. No wonder his Pru-Fox buddies call him "Sweet Lou." Oh, yeah, their *** pal? This clown works as a mortgage broker and was busted in a "Catch a Predator"-type sting run out of Florida. He thought he was going to do the "hook-up" with a 14-year old girl, who turned out to be a 54-year old sheriff's deputy! These Margate, NJ "Real Estate Professionals" are class acts all around! Listen-- Do you really want to get tangled up with scoundrels like these guys? If not, then just stay away from Pru-Fox!

LOL!!! .

The very same BHHS/Fox & Roach "Sales Professionals" who were viciously savaging me for telling the truth about him are spreading their own very nasty stories about *** This proves two things: I was absolutely right about *** and these BHHS/Fox & Roach realtors will turn on you at the drop of a hat.

Oh, and stay away from Long & Foster too!

Just stay away from them. :sigh

Oy! :x

These Pru-Fox realtors laugh at the buyers they dupe? OK.

But you want some serious yuks? If so, then head down to the shore and listen to the lines the Pru-Fox realtors are spouting in desperate attempts to unload their listings that were swamped by Hurricane Sandy. LOL!! According to those realtors, every listing at the shore is "high and dry!" .

. .

Listen-- don't believe a word they say! :p

Swindling the goyim. That's what this outfit does.

Don't believe me? OK. Ask around. .

Mark Arbeit And Co - Mark Arbeit & Company, Margate, NJ: Stay Away!

Stay away from this guy. He and another realtor in his office-- Lou Solomon-- teamed up with a convicted criminal *** mortgage broker to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. Think you can trust Mr. Arbeit? Well, here are a few reasons why you might want to re-think that. First, you must read in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987 about why he was bounced from his post as an assistant elementary school principal. Bizarre calls to little boys in the middle of the night? Offering a boy money to pose nude for him? The State of Virginia won't trust him to be around little boys, but you're going to trust him with everything that goes into buying or selling a house??? Second, his buddy, Solomon, explicitly indicated in the MLS description for my place that their dumpy mortgage broker pal had completed a standard NJ Seller's Disclosure Form, a good portion of which covers oil tanks. When I asked asked Mr. Arbeit nine days after closing to secure for me a copy of the form, though, he told me there actually was no form. And the reference to the form in the MLS description? He told me that was a "typo" of the kind that happens all the time. Third, if there were no form, then I asked him to get for me just a list of prospective buyers who had been through my place. I did this because I know realtors keep such lists in order to protect their commissions, and because one of those "lookers" doubtlessly discovered the tank I came across only belatedly. Mr. Arbeit's response? He actually told me that no realtor EVER keeps track of "lookers" who go through the realtor's listings! Believe that? Fourth, Mr. Arbeit had informed me and my wife that another realtor in his office was preparing a high bid on our place for a competing buyer, so I asked him to secure for me just the name of that "secret bidder," thinking the bidder might have known something about the oil tank. Arbeit's answer? He told me that he'd never even mentioned a competing buyer or "secret bidder." Finally, just do a "Google Images" search on this dude and compare some of the images you pull up with the way he currently looks. I mean, I heard him say that he had changed his name in the past; he's gone now and had done some "work" that has totally changed his face. What is up with that? Guys like Mr. Arbeit love to accuse others of being "being uncomfortable in their own skins." But, hey, I really don't see too many other guys out there changing their names and totally altering their looks!! OK. I could go on longer about this fellow, but I think you get the idea. He's untrustworthy. So just stay away from him and his office!

Thanks for your post - I have filed a Complaint against Long & Foster for negligence and unethical business practices due to a realtor at the Mark Arbeit office in Margate placing an unplaceable tenant in my rental house in Brigantine. Realtor did no due diligence and lied to my face regarding how wonderful tenant was.

Tenant damaged my property and left me with an unrented house going into winter.

Realtor told me all he has to do is bring me a tenant and when tenant turns out to be a serial deadbeat that’s just too bad, or as I was told, “you are on your own”. And I paid a commission for this...

#1407490

I went to that school and will never forget that Peadophile. One of the kids called was a close friend of mine and I as well as 3 other kids (we were 5th and 6th graders) were in the house of one of the accusers when VP Albeit called.

We then called our parents who called the school and he was fired. The Facebook pictures of him are him too. That’s him. It’s not someone else.

He is a horrible person who sadly caused some real harm to me and others (all of us are now in AA, NA, or dead). All of us.

*** that guy. I went searching for 3 people who abused me as a small child and it started with this ***.

#1407690
@Anonymous

Preach it, guy! .

. . Mr. Arbeit has surrounded himself with plenty of "Beautiful People" up here in the Atlantic City, NJ area who all play dumb about his past and try viciously to silence anyone who even so much as mentions his history.

. . . He and another realtor in his office teamed up with a convicted online predator to stick it to me and my wife in our purchase of a house.

The three of them did plenty of boasting, high-fivin' and laughing about the way they stuck it to us. I hope one day just to get as many yuks about Mr. Arbeit as he and his two pals had about me and my wife. .

.

. So, again, preach it!

#1134289

Don't tell me that *** has "used and losed" yet another female associate???? .

.

. How can all of his f__ hags continue to insist that nobody gets along better with women than he does?

#1087084

If the pending legislation to disqualify anyone who commits a Megan's Law-type offense from securing a realtor's license becomes law, then will *** Arbeit lose his license? .

. . I could probably work my way through it, but I thought that some of you might know the answer and could save me a little time. .

. .

Come on. Help me out here, folks.

#1059665

Margate, NJ's "Beautiful People" think that it's a great idea to have *** Arbeit sponsoring a little league soccer team???? .

. . Sure. The few children that they had fled the nest ago.

They therefore don't care one bit about *** involving himself in the activities of today's kiddies. . .

. Here's hoping that *** or one of the Tannenbaum boys pushes his luck a bit too far with one of the children.

#1059870
@Anonymous

Derrrrr, . .

. those children "fled the nest LONG ago." . .

. I think you get the drift, though: Sign up your kids in Margate, NJ for lacrosse!!!

#1038376

*** and his courtiers have proclaimed Margate, NJ a "Pope-Free Zone." And what do the few papists left among Margate's "Real Estate Professionals" do? They nervously laugh a little, look around for someone with whom to exchange a fist-bump, and keep their mouths shut.

They actually think that *** and his posse will reward them for this with a cut of the action. . . .

I don't think that they are very smart. *** has 'em on the run, and everybody knows it.

#1009129

*** really should be a target in some "Catch a Predator"-type sting. He thinks that his smarts and his filthy attorneys on retainer have made him "bullet proof." .

. . Let him think what he wants.

I'm telling you that he would be a "sitting duck" in any such sting.

#994551

He's such a POS. The proverbial emperor with no clothes .

. . Why can't anyone in Margate, NJ see it? .

.

. Thanks, Jimbo!

Prudential Fox And Roach - Prudential, Fox, Roach, Northfield, NJ: Oily As They Come!!!

Yo, folks: Don't deal with any Prudential, Fox and Roach realtors. I dealt with two of them-- Mark Arbeit and Lou Solomon-- and regret it to this day. These two Pru-Fox "Sales Professionals" teamed up with a doughy, convicted *** mortgage broker to stick me with the broker's house over a leaking underground oil tank. These three "Real Estate Professionals" thought it was a laugh riot. My name's still a punch line among all the realtors and mortgage brokers in my area. You want some real laughs? Well, if so, then read stories about Mr. Arbeit's misadventures with little schoolboys in The Washington Post archives for June 20, 25 and 26, 1987. What's going on here? The State of Virginia won't trust him to be in its schools, but Pru-Fox wants you to give him access to your son's bedroom? These realtors' dumpy mortgage broker pal? He hurried down from New Jersey to Florida for what he thought was a rendezvous with a 14-year old girl who turned out to be a 54-year old sheriff's deputy. Can you say, "Hey, how you doin'? What do you have in the bag?" Solomon? He's the epitome of your Pru-Fox realtor: Represents convicted convicted criminals; lets prospective buyers know his sellers' bottom lines; puts in MLS descriptions for his listings information that he later laughingly admits is false; and sports a really gnarly, year-'round tan. Solomon's co-workers call him "Sweet Lou"-- and they're not being facetious! Look-- do you really want to get tangled up with scoundrels like these three? If not, then just steer clear of Pru-Fox!!!
