I understand your frustration, and want to assure you not all agents are as negligent as the ones you have been trying to contact.
I would love the opportunity to have an agent that specializes in the philadelphia area, and one whom works with my company give you a call directly, to help you find the perfect house to fix up.
My email is http://firstname.lastname@example.org
Its amazing that in the market we are in that any agent wouldn't be chomping at the bit to work with a motivated buyer. Keep plugging away and you will find someone to look after your best interest.
You should also check into Teacher Next Door Program through HUD. This is a program that helps teachers, police officers, etc. purchase HUD homes for much less. It's not always easy, but check it out. Also I'm not sure why you are not able to find more help, but I have friends and family in the Philadelphia area and could help you find an agent it you still don't have one. Best of luck.
Read about us on our website. If we do not think we can best serve you we will certainly refer you to the right broker.
Sorry about that. It just makes me nuts when people don't respond. I wish I were in your area my agents jump all over leads. Try this web site and you can get a live person on the phone who will patch you into a agent while you are on the line. http://www.weichert.com Good luck
