Get a load of this! So my fiancé and I recently bought a house, we are in a small rental house and we were able to snag an outdated older persons fixer upper at a good price in this market. Coincidentally my landlord called us the same week we bought the house and told us he was selling the rental we were in. He’s a great guy and we’ve had a great relationship over our 4 years of renting.
Anyway, he tells us we will have the weekend and a few days to clean up, cut grass etc. Again he is a great guy so we want to clean the house, and we had already rented a small dumpster to clean the junk out of the basement and garage. Even without cleaning the place it is looking/smelling 10x better than when we moved in, the landlord even expressed this a year ago when he came to fix something. This Realtor text us the day my landlord contacts us and tell us she is coming in a few hours to take pictures. We obviously told her no and called my landlord to confirm we have a few days to clean. He’s was as confused as we are by her haste-fullness and told her to wait.
A few day of cleaning later she is coming to take pictures. First thing first, she is 45 minutes late, with one text at the 20 minute mark that she was on her way. When she arrives she greets OUR NEIGHBORS. We are confused about their conversation and figure they are friends or something. NOPE, she is showing them the house with zero notice to us because she “figured we had a relationship with them.” Which we have a “Hello” relationship, but that’s it. I confront her about this after the showing and she brushes me off like she doesn’t even see me and asks me about what doors we lock in the house. She then tells us she won’t be listing the house for at least 2 days, then lists it the next morning. This bitch is straight treating us like trash because we are tenants and she thinks we deserve no respect.
Side note, my landlord is selling 15 FUCKING HOUSES with this lady! I texted her, for visual proof, telling her she is unprofessional and that it is unacceptable the way she is treating us. She rebuttals back basically saying she has been communicating just fine and that it’s not a big deal our neighbors were over. So I have no choose but to text the landlord. He basically says that is unacceptable and that he will handle it. I got a text from her a few minutes later apologizing for everything but it was obviously a “I’m sorry I got caught”…
I get the market is stressful right now but what the fuck is this lady, mid 40’s and is an experienced realtor, treating the people living in the houses she is selling like shit. She is risking losing over a dozen houses and/or future houses he may sell because you think you are better than the people renting this place? Me and my fiancé are both working professionals and can’t believe someone can treat people like that, especially at their job. She knows they will sell, why be so pushy? Especially when you have people who want to clean up to make pictures look nice? Sorry for the rant, but I figured someone would relate!
