Broker Shenanigans

One of the Rushmore's top brokers is a 77-year-old civil rights attorney who has never even laid eyes on the posh Riverside South condo tower. Say wha? With legal issues swirling around the Extell-developed building, the Wall Street Journal examines nine Rushmore apartments sold to clients by John Cobb, who earned $669,000 in commissions. He's not a broker, but neither is Carolyn Li, the unlicensed person who actually showed the apartments and instructed that her payments be sent to Cobb, because attorneys can legally accept commissions. Scandal! Or is it? [WSJ]
