My guess is you are seeking a foreclosed property.
Many people chasing distressed property sales(foreclosures) are meeting with this scenario. The fact of the matter is, many of these properties go to contract in a matter of a few days and the listing agents are being bombarded with calls and requests for information.
Agents that are persuing these properties in support of their buyers are meeting with this frustration as well. It insensitive to only be able to reach an answer machine, leave messages, and never get a return call.
Generally, most professional agents return calls and seek to establish relationships with potential buyers.
Keep trying. The right opportunity is out there.
The listing agent works for the seller, not for you. Your interests would be better served by having an agent who works specifically for you. You may find a local agent who responds to this question or go to the top of the page to "Find a Pro" and reading some of their profiles, answers & blog posts and selecting and agent that is knowledgeable, professional and responsive.
Why are you contacting the listing broker? They have a responsibility to the seller and if you are interested to get you to pay the most money for the home, at the expense of others, even if there may be a better opportunity for you. Call a Buyer agent and that Realtor costs nothing and has a responsibility to you to negotiate the best deal for you on this home or to find you a better deal elsewhere. The cost... nothing.
More then likely you are dealing with an agent that is not very "on the ball" shall we say. For whatever reason, your inquiry should have been responded to as soon as possible. If you would like, contact me via phone at 813-326-0186 or email at crrBrad@gmail.com and I will be happy to find out what the situation is with the home you are referencing. Not to mention, I would be able to find other similar homes that will fit your criteria as well.
Thank you for your time.
