Once upon a Time, there was a newly married couple who enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening and other outdoor recreations but needed to buy a house. They found a cute little house that either could take care of if anything huge happened to it, and within a reasonable price. The wife called the realtor, twice, in which the realtor selling the house never called her back.
The couple decided to get a different realtor, in which they called him Larry and Larry got them in to see the home the couple wanted. Cute and small but with good bones and skin, the couple wanted it and asked for Larry to draw up the offer to send to the realtor, who we will call the WW.
Well, here is the story in a condensed version. Larry sent in the offer which took 72 hours to get back to use that they didn’t like it and said no… no counter offer, nothing. The couple walked away upset but scratching their heads. After a hunting trip, they came back and asked Larry to draw up another offer, sent it to the WW and another 72 hours later got an offer back. The couple talked it over and excepted it and hoped to get the ball rolling and got a mortgage loan on the roll… hahhhahhahaa!
The Couple and Larry worked together to get the inspections and appraisal and other items in the window of time posted. While the WW Realtor dragged her feet and didn’t return calls for important meetings with the Appraisal person or the Septic Inspectors and did not return calls concerning questions for the Mortgage nor the buyers requests. And all the while Larry and the couple worked and slaved to get this house.
When the time came to sign for the little house, to make it theirs, the bank couldn’t let them and the Title company was bare! The WW Realtor had been screwing up the paper work, had stopped calling people back on questions concerning the house and nothing had been inspected. Which made the couple not just sad, but very very mad.
SO the Couple was stressed and began to fight, the lady was more upset for the WW dropping the broom and letting all the work, and money go to waste and the couple both hated waste. Larry their Realtor was more than upset, as the WW was completely unprofessional and come to find out yelled and cussed at the Couples Mortgage Broker and would not give him vital information.
So, with all the fighting and all the waste and all of the agitation beyond the color of things, the Lady said I am done and went to the bank and talked to her Mortgage Broker about the problems at hand. The Mortgage Broker felt bad for the couple since the Bank and had screwed up some of the paperwork as well and told the couple they didn’t have to pay for their bank fee! Some good news was always a plus in a very hard mortgage year. She asked him when they were ever going to close as it had been a month since the couple was supposed to sign… in which the mortgage broker made some calls and got a hold of Larry and they worked out the paperwork to close the house for the couple.
If you are wondering yes it is I and my wonderful Hubby. We closed today and get the golden key tomorrow. As for Larry we will be doing a surprise for him as the seller is paying his fees, but he worked miracles and his own magic. But as for the WW Realtor….. that is going to be the next frightening chapter in this Horror Story in which she will wish she would have been…. a little nicer!
