Mary encouraged us to pay asking price the day we saw the house. She just wanted to make the sale happen and did a horrible job pretending to be working for us. BTW, the price of the house has been dropped twice since we backed out of the botched deal so Mary certainly wasn't trying to help us in a sellers market. She NOW says we were right in our original offer, but never said that at the beginning of the process. She also wasn't helpful regarding work the sellers promised to do for us. They were supposed to scrape and prime the entire house and not just the parts that had peeling paint. Well they scraped and primed the parts that had peeling paint. This is clearly visible from the photos, yet Mary said they had done what they were supposed to do.… MoreLess
Kevin, I understand you are disappointed. However, it usually always works out for the best, even in this case. In my experience, buyers find the houses they are meant to buy. Clearly, you were not meant to buy this house. Although you may disagree, I am very much a professional with plenty of other reviews to prove that, both here and off line. On another note, during the time we worked together, I did accomplish something most agents cannot take credit for. I negotiated a lot of money to be awarded to you to take care of issues found during the inspection. I also negotiated with the listing agent to have the peeling paint scraped and primed in the appropriate color PRIOR to contract signing so that you would not have that issue when applying for your loan. These are not such easy negotiations, in any market.
Again, I truly hope you and your family find the home of your dreams where you will find happiness and success in years to come.
