“After Canceling Three Appointments”

“After Canceling Three Appointments”



I have all the information I would need to meet with you so whenever you are available to meet would be great. I know we are right in the middle of the holidays so just let me know when you can be free and we can see if that works if you're still interested in meeting with me.


Three times was not a charm, but of course I would be willing to meet on December 31st and I hope this time I can finally get the mortgage done and complete this purchase. I originally met with this guy 4 months ago as he wanted to purchase the home he was renting. He and the sellers have worked out an agreement without a Realtor which may create a problem and is something I don’t encourage.


I let him know that even though he has been living at the property for the last 4 years he should get a home inspection, water test and termite test. Eventually all of these things were done and hopefully there won’t be an appraisal issue ahead but the way this transaction has gone, nothing would surprise me.

Hi Joe.  It's tough when there isn't a professional involved except for you.

Hi Joe.  I am assuming there's some question as to this person's motivation.

Good morning Joe,

Happy New Year.

Make yourself a great day.

Living in the home doesn't give quite the same urgency does it? Hope you have a Happy New Year Joe.

We all know with lenders and real estate transactions nothing is final until it's recorded. We'll keep our fingers crossed for this one.

Sounds like he's finally ready, Joe, if he has gone through all the inspections. Now let's see if he can afford it!

Posted by Hella Mitschke Rothwell, Hawaii & California Real Estate Broker ((831) 626-4000) about 5 years ago

It's too bad that borrowers don't take the process more seriously, and consider the mortgage brokers who take time out of their day to help them buy homes.  Happy New Year, may all your clients become homeowners in 2016!

Sometimes it's takes time and persistence to successfully  to bring the elements of the transacting together . . . . Another great job.

Good luck and success.

Joe both you and I know that without a Realtor involved to assist in the purchase there will be issues
