My mom put up 1000 to buy a condo in a predominantly white area back in Jan. She went through all of the steps to get the place, loan information (my schooling), credit checks, etc. The real estate agent slow poked around lying to my mom telling her that they "would close this week" over and over. Well, a few days ago a mutual friend of my mom and the real estate agent called and told her the condo was bought in cash from someone else. He sold it from under us. He never called my mom personally to tell her anything. My mom met with the owner today and she apologized and felt so bad because she kept calling the real estate agent for 3 weeks and he hasnt returned her calls, he also gave the owner the wrong number to get in touch with my mom. We have no where to go. What can we do?
