OK...let's name, names and tell stories.
We have all heard the rants about "blood suckers."
Name them. I dare you.
Brokers are invited to join in this...they have a lot to tell about their own business.
Common guys, make this a real blog.
I will start:
The worst of the worst is Fern Hammond. She has pulled every sleazy trick in the book. I had one incident with her years ago. I was in the market for a broker. She hounded me, knocked on my door a million times...I told her point, blank, I did not want to use her. Do you know what she did? When my broker held an open house, she attacked people in the lobby. She tried to convince them to allow her to "show" my apartment. When that did not succeed she bad mouthed my apartment. I had to have her bodily thrown out of my building.
I am not sure, 6 years later, if they have let her back in.
"Name them. I dare you." Eeewww, you are so brave, Mr Blacklist. so -- how about your name?
"Do you know what she did? When my broker held an open house, she attacked people in the lobby. " OHH MY GOSH....Did she use a weapon? Physically grab them? Verbally abuse them?...What kind of "attack" was it?
To make this meaningful, give prurient details.
blacklist- get some therapy
6 years is nothing to you, right? Pathetic.
How old are you, "youcannot"?
When you're 6, 6 years is a lifetime, when you're 66 a short time ago.
I'd guess you are 28?
No Jimstreeteasy, she didn't use a weapon but Fern represented herself as the person they, the potential buyer was coming to see.
Yeah...you guys..just continue to whine.............
I hope you find a wife just like her
Blacklist (I didn't catch your name....dare you !!!) Is this meant as a parody of pitiful posters?
jim, I think you need a nappy change. Bed time for you.
Dear Mr. Blacklist.
I am a broker with over 22 years in NYC Real Estate. I have to tell you - you are right on.
You are right to select the broker of your choice and Sadly you had one of the experiences that do give us a bad name.
No broker/agent should be grabbing clients from a lobby where another broker has set up an open house. it is highly unethical and does not fit any rule of ethics. Any agent that may not agree with that is probably doing that kind of sleazy business too. I did read your post and the others.
While I do not know that broker, it is true that some are barracudas, but there are many good, and ethical agents/brokers, I hope you got your desired results.
Hands off the time machine!
This should be fun.
Except no one gives a shit.
I like it when brokers talk about ethics!
firecrackah firecrackah sis boom bah
falco and marco - you just told everyone what you are about. :)
Of course there are brokers right on this board who boldly admit to outright lying about square footage and how many "bedrooms" a given apartment has.
It should be the opposite: A list of GOOD brokers, since even the brokers in these boards admit 90% of them suck. The default is they suck. The list should be those that do not.
