Asked by Sarah, 77521 • Thu Dec 27, 2007
When we bought our home 4 years ago, we got our real estate agent through a friend of mine who liked her. Turns out she was not real experienced and besides the fact that she was our agent, her best friend in the same real estate office was the seller's agent. As a result, I think a lot of things got overlooked. We could have sued the old owners & won for lying about things like HUGE roots in the pipeline that would not let us flush our toilet the 1st AM in our new house (nice!) but OUR agent said that she was told that everything was taken care of but we have proof that it wasnt. As I've been told, winning in small claims ct is different than collecting. We just chalked it up to experience (about $3500).
Anyway, we are wanting to sell and move to Wimberley. I want an agent older than dirt that knows ALL of the ins & outs of real estate and who we can trust so we don't get screwed again. What's the best way to do this? I dont want to just pick someone off the internet.
