Disgusting and Unprofessional
The Sawyer agent who showed us a property on wednesday evening said she is on holiday on thursday and friday being good friday, so specifically asked us not to meet anyone in the same office but to meet her on Saturday morning at 9 am. During the saturday morning meeting, we asked for a negotiating price but we said we are happy with whatever the price is. The same Sawyer agent promised us to call the same day after checking whether someone else has seen the property on Thursday, which is disgusting, since we have been asked to come on saturday specifically. Anyhow, we waited till that evening, no calls came in. So, when we called during the end of the day and called for the same estate agent, someone else continued to ask and answer my questions. That lady said that house is no longer available and there were other people who saw the house after us seeing it, got that house.We clearly said we are very much interested in that property and though we ask for negotiability, the original price was affordable. Is this the way an interested customer be turned down? I do not want to mention the estate agent's name here for some decency but really got angry and feel pathetic on how STROUD sawyer agency being run. - Pagu
What agent could do to change your mind?
Since we said we are interested in the property and said though we ask for negotiable but affordable at the same amount on wednesday, she could have arranged someone else on the next day with someone else since she's on holiday the next day itself. This would have led to us sign the papers that same day though there wasnt any negotiable. Instead she promised us a Saturday morning meeting where we were asked to come up with best price which she'll check with landlord. Even during the same saturday meeting, we said clearly that though we ask for a negotiable price, we said we will finalise whatever the price is given to us by her in discussion with landlord.
She promised us to call us in the same day which we waited till the end of the day and we called back. She didnt answer the phone though we were specifically asking for her by her name.
The other lady who took the phone said the property is already gone for the people who saw the house on thursday.
Though we explained that we said our interests on wednesday itself, she didnt tried to understand and said it's gone again very abruptly. The agent who shown us the property could have come to answer the phone where we could have straight have told to her about our concern.
Anyway, this gives me an opportunity to speak about what happened to public so that they are not in the same situation like me any more.
