“I Understand Why Some People Attract”

“I Understand Why Some People Attract”

 

 

From time to time I would get referrals from a Realtor that is a real jerk, but haven’t in a number of months. I have asked him not to refer business to me as many of his clients are just like him and it just seems every transaction is a problem. I suggested he find someone else to torture.

 

I received a call from a couple wanting to discuss a mortgage. I always ask who referred them and sure enough it was this same agent. He apparently suggested they contact me directly. It would have been a bit strange to say to them, I don’t like working with your agent and probably wouldn’t really like working with you.

 

As the conversation went along it became pretty obvious why they work so well with this agent. It sounded like they have already spoken to a number of loan officers. I should have pulled the plug, but against my better judgement went on to discuss their mortgage needs and ended up putting together a pre-qualification letter for them. I explained to them they should use 6 weeks to obtain the mortgage. They explained that they already had seen a home that they were interested in.

 

Over the weekend I got a copy of a signed purchase agreement from the agent and the time period to close was 3 weeks. I immediately emailed back, included the clients letting them know the dates don’t work. The email I got back from the agent said an extension could be obtained, “if it is needed”.

 

Since I had a purchase agreement I contacted the listing agent to let her know the closing dates don’t work as it will most likely take 6 weeks. I haven’t heard back as of yet. The fun has already begun, what a poor way to do business.

 

What would you have done?
