We are the victim of shrewd strategy of Barnard Marcus. We bought our first home through them and decided to hire independent lawyers and insurance policies and ended up waiting for six months before getting the position of the house due to delays by their side of lawyers and shifting of documents. We thought it was not intentional.
But now after three years when we hired them again for selling our house we are feeling cheated. To acquire our contract they quoted higher than market price for house and asked for 1.25% fee. Since we were unaware of general practice we signed a 20 week contract with them. After 6 weeks the agent asked us to reduce our price by 10,000 pounds for marketing purpose and after 50 viewings they came up with only offer which was 20,000 pounds lower tyhan initial asked price. After negotiation we agreed at 15000 less price. We received ed a call from our agent saying that if we agree to pay 1.5% fee he will negociate with the buyer for higher price otherwise he wont. We are furious with the agent but have a fix as we have liked a house and need to make an offer.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Be honest and professional with us and the buyer both
