Sold our property with O\'Riordan\'s, all good so far. We then viewed a property that had previously been on their books but didn\'t sell. Whan the manager of O\'Riordan\'s , East Hunsbury, found out which property we had an offer accepted on, he went to the sellers directly.
He then proceeded to talk them out of selling their house to us, and to drop Merry\'s (who was representing them) as he could get them £20k more ....... or so he claimed (he never did, it did not sell). He cajouled and persuaded, so much so, the sellers took their house of the market and we were not able to buy it.
GUZUMPED by our own estate agent!!
This was THE MANAGER!!!!!! his only response was that it didn\'t matter they would find us another house!!!! We attempted legal action, but as they sold our house (after we showed it to all prospective buyers, they could never be bothered to show up!) they hadn\'t actually breached any contract, although what they had done was morally wrong.
They also aparently make up rather rude nick names for all their clients to pass the time, sooooo professional.
I would NEVER EVER buy a house that was for sale through this agent, sell a house, let a house, ar even let them post a leaflet through my door. They are cowboys do not use!!!
What agent could do to change your mind?
the agent could have burnt in hell, then I would have been a little happier!
