Ethics Report Being Filed with the State - Abhorrent Behavior by an Oregon Realtor
Complaint: In 2017 Meadows Group Inc Realtors fraudulently represented a house that I purchased. They were the "selling agent" to me and previously, they were also the "buying agent" for the same home. Overwhelming evidence shows intentional deception regarding the condition of the home. Let me explain: Agent Dustin Funes misrepresented the structural foundation condition of the home I purchased in January 2017 (readers please note that Dustin Funes is also listed as the primary contact for the Meadows Group Realtors leadership team according to their website - meadowsgroup.com/our-lea…). Shortly after finalization of the home sale, which was purchased based on the specific conditions disclosed in contractual form and otherwise by Meadows Group Realtors, we had nearly immediate foundation issues culminating in a basement wall collapsing and destroying the foundation while causing ripple effect damages throughout the entire structure (from basement to 2nd story ceiling, walls, hardwood floors, tiled areas, flooring, etc.). Repair costs have amassed at hundreds of thousands of dollars with much work still remaining. These undisclosed dangerous structural issues could very well have caused severe injury to anyone inhabiting the home at the time of the collapse. Even today I've yet to move completely into the home nearly a year later while repairs continue, I'm quarantined into certain livable rooms of the house without any heat (in freezing conditions) or other baseline amenities (including no washer and dryer). Evidence: After the collapse, when the basement foundation repairs began, the walls were finally viewed bare (as new sheetrock had been built over unsafe areas). This showed dramatic and dangerous structural issues. These issues were completely absent in all disclosures and communication to me ALTHOUGH they were repeatedly disclosed many times over in the prior home sale documents from the party that owned the home before me, Dustin Funes for Meadows Group Realtors was the buying agent that property and was well aware of these disclosures. This home would have never been purchased by me had I been aware nor was the home safe to live in. Additionally, Dustin Funes and the seller, John Tennant, remarked in the disclosures "unknown" when asking if an inspection report had been conducted on the house in the last 3 years (an inspection report was literally attached to the closing documents and referenced in the prior home sale, not 6 months prior). They did this to hide the condition of the foundation. This is outright deceit. Evidence continued: After a series of investigations were conducted post collapse, we were able to garner copies of the home's previous sale disclosures along with a myriad of additional evidence, both written and testimonial. These disclosures, inspection reports, interviews, etc along with feedback shared by additional involved parties clearly show the intent of fraud. The previous home disclosures and included inspection report reference, in multiple places, that the basement walls were significantly damaged and the concrete was soft and crumbling requiring repair or replacement. Additionally, the disclosures detail that the basement gets damp from water seepage into/through the foundation walls due to this damage (not through the floor). The disclosures also note multiple other areas of damage to the foundation that were never shared with me. NONE of these issues were expressed in the disclosures to us nor by way of any other communication and we know for an absolute fact that no structural repairs were conducted during renovation before selling the home to me (forensic engineering analysis and discussions with the construction company who performed the renovations prove this). INSTEAD, the parties built façade walls over the damaged basement walls to intentionally hide these issues. Even after the foundation collapsed the previous seller and agent from Meadows Group Realtors continued to lie about the foundation of the home to us over many months until disclosures and inspections were provided directly to me by other parties. To be clear, we were lied to repeatedly about these exact issues from Meadows Group and the seller. To this day, direct request to Meadows Group Realtors management for all relevant disclosures, correspondence with the previous owner, and other paperwork have been ignored. I am at a loss as to how an Oregon company who constantly touts its supposed professionalism, ethics, and customer-centric behavior in nearly all of its marketing materials can, in reality, conduct business in such an unethical manner. If this was the work of a lone agent the company is still responsible, as this clearly illustrates a lack of inspection, institutional control, and accountability. This is abhorrent behavior; the broader Oregon homeowner community should be aware of how Meadows Group Realtors really conducts business.

Friendly, Professional, Helpful
Excellent working with Dustin. Very good support during the whole agreement and very easy to work with. In respect with negotiations and repairs, everything was done as agreed and within time. I would definitively recommend working with him if you want to purchase/sell real state.
