Real Estate Agent reviews in San Anselmo
I had calls for showings within an hour of the house being listed, and within two days, had an offer. There was another person interested, so she was able to contact the appropriate agents, and nail down the offer, and by the third day, the house was sold. I was in shock!! I thought it would take several months.
The closing went very smoothly, so no issues there either.
All in all, I would say every detail of the sale was handled professionally, promptly, and with my complete satisfaction.
was nothing but disappointment, stress, and hard work on my part as not even
one step along the way went as it should have due to poor work by Hometown
Realty's team. I have never been so let down by Yelp so I figured I NEEDED to
write about my experience so nobody else makes the same EXPENSIVE mistake I did
They charge the highest commission (6%) real estate agents
charge, I did NOT get what I agreed to pay for, and they refused to lower the
I have too many bad experiences to write about
so here is an abbreviated version (feel
free to ask about any details and I will be happy to share, I also have texts
and emails to backup almost all statements).
My house was beautiful, professionally decorated, even
featured on a popular interior design website. It sold itself, and it did so
quickly, about 2 weeks. This did not have ANYTHING to do with
and at one point their misrepresentation of myself and my feelings about the
date of the close of escrow to the buyer almost put the sale in jeopardy. The
buyer told me this and was just someone who saw the listing online, had their
agent make an appointment, loved it and made an offer. Thankfully, the buyer,
being so fed up with
able to handle the correspondence with them to clear up all issues and make
sure no other misrepresentations were made.
being the very good Yelp reviews, second was their marketing materials, third
was their expertise in San Elijo Hills, and lastly the representation that they
get you a better price then any other agency.
1. I was told I would have glossy color flyers of my home
sent out. That sounds great except they did not even have these sent out until
TWO WEEKS AFTER my house went on the
offer. What kind of timing is that? Any good business-minded person would know
those should be in people's mailboxes the day that house hits the
would take a week or two to get the materials I would have been happy to wait
to list the house when they actually had their marketing materials ready.
per square foot than any other agent, he tells me what price he thinks he
should list my house at. Which, even though it showed better than all of them
and had better location (as
per square foot of the current sales. Where is the follow through and result to
go with that big song and dance you just performed? I ended up deciding to list
higher than he suggested, and I did sell it for higher. I feel
wanted the house sold as quickly and easily as possible so their team could do
the least amount of work, collect that big check, and move on to the next one.
3. I was told they don't usually do videos of condos but as
mine was so beautiful
NEVER did a video as promised.
4. Typos all over my listings and documents that needed to
be signed that I had to point out many times to have corrected. Very
unprofessional, no attention to detail.
5. They told me my open house would be Sun. 1-4. When I
confirmed what time I needed to be out by a few days prior to the open house
they said it was Sat. 12-3, to be out at 11:45. It created a huge issue as I
had a friend in town and had already booked a hotel for Sat and now had to
arrange for Fri as well.
or materials to hand out and an hour before they told me. Good thing I wasn't
in the shower. No feedback on open house given until I texted to ask the next
6. They misrepresented what was included in the home and I
had to go through days of back and forth with the buyer and
things up. Which
when the issue was caused by him in the first place.
7. I received an email saying myself and my home would be
amazing as the first in a new series of video testimonials for Hometown. I responded saying I was sorry but I was not
happy with Hometown and would not feel comfortable doing that. I then received
a call from the owner,
weeks for a call back from her after a couple calls and emails she would not
lower the commission even though they had not provided anything they said they
would and she agreed many of the things I listed were serious issues. I was
offered $500 and a house cleaning which is a slap in the face or %&!$ you
when paying $26,400 commission. No care for their customer, taking
responsibility, or righting their wrongs. Just want your $$$$$$.
