I dont know if I have been tested, I am sure that I would have passed if I had been. 

Do you really think that some of those millions of no shows were testers, I thought they were just losers who did not have the courtesy to cancel an appointment.

Yes, it's possible that I've been tested.  Though, I must have passed since I have never been questioned about it.

If I have been contacted by a tester, I did not know it.

Treat everybody the same, be responsive to their needs, and you will not have a problem.

I think so.  I wrote a blog post about it in 2007.  Fair Housing - Beware of Testers!  That post even got a gold star!

I think so. A couple of years ago we had a couple who seemed to be testing us. We worked with them for a couple of months until they finally said they decided to wait a while longer before buying a house. Just a gut feeling.

I personally have not, but I know people who did. When they come to Charlotte and agents start suspecting testers, the word here gets out very fast to be very, very careful.
