      We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Green, OH 44232
      Tried to get this realtor to assess, price, and put my house on the market. Had a long talk with her about the process, was supposed to hear back within the week to make an appointment to start the selling process, and NEVER heard back. Got a new realtor who returns calls promptly...my house sold quickly and I would NOT recommend her. So unprofessional...  MoreLess

      There's definitely more to this story. A couple things are in play here, so let's address it head on. You contact an expert whom you hadn't actually hired yet, expect her to take time to give you FREE advice (which she did), then call her unprofessional for not jumping on you afterwards...sounds like a person of integrity to me and EXACTLY who I'd hire. A high performing individual in her field who knows the value of her skillset and time. Truth be told-you could have reached her via 3 phone numbers, email, online via her websites, or by seeing her at her office that is open 7 DAYS a week. Do YOU know how to contact someone when you're comfortable and ready to move forward? Do you like pushy people? Of course not. Its amazing you couldn't contact her, yet you have time to post a review. A wise man once told me "Sometimes the BEST business deal you make is the one you DON'T make." It seems that was the case here...looks like she was wise on this instance and saw this coming a mile away.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $75K in West Akron, Akron, OH.
      Pros: -Catharine was aggressive in getting the deal done.

      -She made reasonable recommendations (that demonstrated her knowledge of the pricing in the market) for what price to come in at during the offer process. This knowledge resulted in my getting the home at what I felt was a good price.

      -I will also commend her for responding to questions and requests in a timely fashion at all times of the day.

      -Catharine never made me feel like I was being pushed into purchasing a home or like I was receiving a canned pitch.

      -Made use of modern technology in terms of communication, and document distribution

      Cons: -I know business gets hectic, but I do have to say she was consistently late (at least 10 minutes) to showings and did not call...

      -Last minute contract changes without explanation. (Not necessarily her fault, but it would have been nice for her to elaborate on how the changes in the contract would affect the purchase.)

      -She provided little or no insight into local community, ethnicity, entertainment, etc...

      -Didn't explain the process well (first time buyer, assumed that I would know when to order what inspection and what to look for).

      -Howard Hannah offices charge an additional $225 administrative fee on top of the agent's commission during home purchases.

      -Didn't make common reccomendations like a walk through a few days before close...

      -Catharine's desire to succeed can sometimes manifest itself in what many would perceive as unprofessional behavior. (This is both a pro and a con, I would probably be content with her trying to sell my home, I am not sure that I would be as happy having her help me purchase one again?)

      A desire to succeed is unprofessional? Hmmm - glad most people DO choose to work w/people who have a desire to succeed. Raymond Latiano:Please chk your email for pgs you signed, 3 times, that outlined the $225 fee. Lenders, title co.s, and brokerages charge fees-I don't. Community insight? I was ranked #1 for sales and have owned a home in that area for 15 yrs. I'm surprised by the post as you said you were working w/many agents before choosing the best represent you. I do have info. on local statistics. The value of my services is NOT in entertainment info. I provide. I advise clients that buying a bank-owned, w/o utilities on, is a headache, but I worked on a transaction most would not pursue and protected you by requesting inspections. We walked thru the property SEVERAL times, even in snow up to the knees.I made time for it on my way to a charity event so your family could see it. This property could re-sell for 2-3 times the selling price-I would think that would make you happy :)

      Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2010 in Akron, OH.
      I can't tell you how bad of an experience we had with Haller. Here was a realtor with no regard or dedication to our best interests....didn't return telephone calls promptly(always 2 days later), in fact she seemed really hard up for a sale, telling us that the buyer would walk if we didn't take his rediculous, un-researched offer! Turns out we had no option but to get rid of her and get a replacement, her assistant. To make this short, we ended up getting $10K more than what Haller wanted to take for our home. In addition, we were supposed to get a customer satisfication questionaire from the broker but never received it. Politics? Employee/broker protection? Tell me!  MoreLess

      Thanks for posting although there are several false statements throughout. I did sell a house of an acquaintance of yours and the records, the MLS, and all legal documents reflect that. Also, I was not replaced; I do have a partner to assist clients as needed when I am unavailable. I am very respectful of all of my clients’ time and needs. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are able to help clients who are under much stress, angry, and having difficulty. As for being 'hard up for a sale', I was certainly anything but that - on the contrary, I sold, and had placed under contract, over 50 properties last year, in 2010. I feel fortunate and blessed to have had many, many appreciative clients who understand that I must share with them the possible scenarios and outcomes in order for them to make the very best decision possible for them and their families. Finally, I was awarded the Quality Service Award for 2010, based on client reviews and yours was included.
