Buyers, sellers, another side Informative - The agents side of the story
We are always hearing the consumers side of the story, well I am offering mine.
I have been lied to, cheated, had totally bogus complaints made against me when every time, it should have been THANKS!! Sellers and buyers both going behind your back to cheat you out of a commission, I have been threatened by a suited street punk after I found him a buyer for a large tract of land, he met with the buyer and both discussed how they would cheat us...at one point this loudmouth cheat told me he had connections with the mafia and if I did not take the 1/3 less on my commission, he would just wait another 6 months after listing contract and I would get nothing, this happened in early 09 when commissions were very scarce. Then another this year when I can barely pay my business bills-- we go to show a 200 acre piece only to be told it was sold and all of the contact info I have on this person is disconnected. My receipts for this year again do not pay my bills and here I am reading how horrible RE agents are, yes, some of them are...but my experience has been the sellers (worse) & the buyers....when I go to my attorney to sue for commissions, I am told I will need about $6000 to start a suit and judges always seem to rule in the favor of the cheating seller, even when all paperwork and evidence points in MY favor. Any other realtors had it??
