The Devil in Disguise

Dear Karen the Realtor,

I was really excited about buying the condo. I had spent a few months looking and finally found your listing. The old charm, the high ceilings, claw foot tub, tons of windows, tile bathroom and kitchen, the place looked beautiful. Surprisingly so, my husband was thrilled too. He cared more about the location, and the property was exactly where we wanted it. You were quick to respond to my inquiry, answered my questions, and pointed me in the direction of a mortgage company. Oh the excitement.

I was thrilled today when I received a call from the mortgage company saying we qualified for the loan. We had done all the paperwork, submitted all the information, and were ready to move forward. The actually thought of owning not just any place, but that place. Oh the excitement.

I called your office today and spoke to your assistant. She said you were out of town but could answer any of my questions. Then she proceeded to look up the property were we hoping to buy. Karen, oh Karen . . . You tell people when a property is in CONTRACT.

Yes, Karen, lame-ass (insert a variety of other vulgar terms here) Karen, didn't tell us the property was in contract, otherwise known as being bought. Instead she sent me 4 different emails telling me how excited she was that we wanted to buy the place.

This is my Wednesday. And tonight, I am going to go home and continue to torture myself by watching the RNC.

i'm sorry for your disappointment, but you and the little devil sure are cute. that kind of thing happened to my brother and he found a home that was better than the one he thought was "perfect".

oooooh how frustrating. seriously, these real estate agents... I mean, how much commission are they making off of you and they can't take the time to freakin' review the properties properly! argh! do your job!

I'm sorry for your beautiful loss. but just think... it wasn't meant to be because something so much better is about to come along!

OH! that happened to me- it is an awful feeling, specially since in your mind you have already decided where the couch was going to go....

but i have to tell you something happens and lets you know it was meant to be you will see!!!

ps. i personally think realtors are slipping wasy to much-almost like they do not realize how it impacts us.

og and don't you love when they are on vacation!!!

Oh no!, how evil of Karen. You should make her watch the RNC as punishment, you did nothing to deserve such punishment....

Oh damn. Getting screwed around like that is not cool. I'm with the others: something better will come along.

So horrible....I cant beleive it! Well actually we had some pretty awful experiences when we were buying our townhome a couple years ago. I hope you find something even better!!

susiewong said...

i have one even better

have your lender sale your mortgage under your nose and you get a hand delivered notice of eviction...you then have no trust in the USofA after that.

my sugestion to you is find a realtor that someone you know has used....and do your own research before you count your chickens
