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.

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.
Response from Catherine on 07/05/2011
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.

Hmm...there are 2 sides to every story, of course. Let's think logically about this and not base our comments on emotion, shall we? First of all, someone with poor 'responsiveness' does not make it to the Top 1% of their industry in the Nation -it just doesn't happen. And someone who sells over 100 houses a YEAR probably doesn't need to pressure anyone in to taking ANY deal or post reviews. She was probably right about a deal you should have taken. It's a bit vengeful that you're posting NOW about something from 2009.I doubt you have ever been in sales, Tiffany. Honestly, if someone reminds you of how much time they've investing in working for you, you've probably abused them and they're just trying to politely remind you that they expect to be compensated for their expertise-instead of finding out from a developer that you wanted to buy their lot at a cheaper price by not honoring the relationship.Personally, I would rather have fewer dollars in my pocket, but still have my integrity.
