Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Rocklin, CA.
I sold a house in Los Altos in July 2013. As I was looking for a house in Roseville/Rocklin area I asked my selling agent to refer me an agent in that area. He referred me Linda McMillan so I hired her. I told her that I would be getting a loan even though I had enough saving in the bank to pay 100% cash. As this is an important fact I wrote her an email on October 2nd that I would get a loan of $150k and the balance would be paid in cash and she should use this when we make an offer. However, she did not read my email and when we made an offer in November she wrote "100% cash payment". When I saw this I thought it was ok as I will be getting the money from the loan company so that the seller will get the 100% cash. She put 30 days for the escrow to close. I thought it seemed rather short then I found it was based on 100% cash from my bank. I had to tell her that I had to go through the loan process though I was pre-approved. As a result, the seller added a clause that I had to pay $1800 even if we close the escrow in 30 days. I did not fully agreed to this but I had to sign this as I wanted to buy this house. At that time I asked her to take her responsibility and pay me back the half, $900. She agreed ti do this but after the escrow closed on December 10th and she received her commission she refused to pay me back saying she did not remember our agreement. It is only $900 and it will not ruin my retirement but I cannot believe how unethical an agent can be. I want to write this review so that the future buyers and the sellers will not deal with her and get cheated out. I tried to contact her broker, Mary Walter to make my complaint but her phone number cannot be found. I even went to my selling agent who referred me to Linda and he could not find the contact information of her broker. I have been calling Linda every day but she has not returned my calls. I plan to go to Real Estate board to make my complaint.
