Do real estate agents lie about offers?
Yes, the occasional real estate agent might lie about an offer.
However, the vast majority would never do so.
In real estate personal recommendations and reputation are critical to success.
The loss to an agents professional reputation and the subsequent impact on their business would far outweigh any financial gain.
Can a Realtor lie to you?

Can you sue a realtor for lying?
In addition to the lawsuits listed above, you may also be able to sue a real estate agent for lying. However, suing for a lie or misrepresentation is not as simple as it sounds. If the lie was overt, such as the agent claiming that the house has never been remodeled when it actually was, you could have a case.
