hahahahahaha! I'm really glad that SEVERAL issues were resolved here!!

Liz the buyer, I concur with Liz the agent! It's a good idea for you to have a buyer's agent.

I've posted about this many times. Many buyers don't want to be bothered, so they don't seek out any help. Remember, this is potentially the largest purchase of your life!!! You should not be trying to navigate this transaction by yourself. Chances are, the seller has an agent working on their behalf, and since it will cost little or NO money out of your pocket, why not have a licensed, educated professional working on your behalf, too!! The seller's agent is NOT there to get you a deal, they're there to get the best price and terms for the SELLER!

Nothing against sellers, but buyers need to know that agents are there for them now, too.

good luck~

Dear Liz,

We are all super sorry! Your question should be the main topic of discussion here and I feel like I am responsible for the hijacking. My intention was not simply to vent about Trulia. I re-posted with my "agent vs home buyer" issue as it's required by MN law for me to disclose this information and I take both ethics and legal matters seriously, keeping current with the changes on a weekly basis, so that I can protect my clients in all transactions.

Again, sorry for all of us complaining on your thread, at least your question was answered in the first response!

Now that we have successfully hijacked Liz's question to air our issues with Trulia, I thought that I might jump in. I was having issues with a duplicate profile a couple of months ago and I sent an email to Trulia through their help system and it was resolved almost immediately. You might give that a shot.

I have answered this question. I am not the listing agent, either. I am located in the area near this property and have a lot of experience in helper buyers and sellers. I wonder about ts Trulia site as well. I have had similar experinces before. We need to get back to the Trulia people about their processes. Liz 612-986-4105

*not sure why Trulia is listing me as a "Home buyer, Orono, MN". I'm a long time Trulia member and (almost) 15 yr licensed agent, Re/Max Results, Plymouth, MN. Again, check out my site at for more listings like the one on Unity :)

Liz - another Liz here! I think you need a realtor to help you. There are many us who work spcifically in this area. I am very familiar with the complex and association you are cnsidering. There are some really good values there. Call if you want to talk. Remember, a realty helps you - as a buyer's agent, I can stand up for you, stand in for you, get you all the details, utilize all the resources and understand your needs and goals and help you achieve those. It costs you nothing, and as a licensed realtor, my pledge is serving and taking care of those I reprtesent. Liz 612-986-4105
