Back in 2012, I wrote this blog. The seller ultimately paid for the expenses my client incurred. She never sued the realtor and the realtor ultimately was never accused of any wrongdoing. But it was still strange all the same.
Why is The Realtor Calling?
What's Up With That?
My client executed an Earnest Money Contract and was proceeding to purchase when the she discovered that the seller had completely misrepresented facts about the HOA, the HOA dues and the future of the developement. At that point, she backed out of the deal and eventually found her way to me. She told me she was getting contact from her realtor and passed the realtor on to me.
So the realtor called me and lobbied that my client let sleeping dogs lie and forget about the issues. She even defended and stood up for the seller. Based on what my client had told me, there was no issue pointing at the realtor. At that point, however, I became highly suspicious. She had already lost the sale so what did she care what my client and her former client wanted to do?
This was not the first phone call I received from a realtor trying to figure out the angles and persuade me to let bygones be bygones.
It is now time to start looking into this thanks to the phone call...
