      • engaged in discussion with the buyer’s agent both before and after receiving email communications between the buyer’s agent and the potential buyer, which Ms. Yu ought to have known were confidential, and made suggestions to the buyer’s agent, which Ms. Yu ought to have realized may be taken by the buyer’s agent as instructions, regarding how the buyer’s agent should deal with the buyer in relation to his refusal to complete the purchase of the property on the basis of the inspection or fengshui report; and
      • contacted the potential buyer directly to discuss his refusal to complete the purchase of the property of the basis of the inspection or fenshui report when, on the basis of the nature of her representation described in the second offer, Ms. Yu did not represent the potential buyer and only represented the seller in the transaction.
