Hello, and thanks for submitting your question to Just Answer. Even though Realtor's have a duty and right to screen potential buyers/renters, they cannot "blackball" a customer for personal reasons. Did you go through another broker? If not, that would be my suggestion on how to approach the situation now. If you think that discrimination has occurred, a formal complaint can be filed against a licensed real estate broker. Information on that and the form to file is at: http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/re/complaint.html .
