Asked by Rod&leeshatto, San Jose, CA Sun Mar 15, 2009

today in south San Jose CA - Town and Country and liked the one we visited. We came back out from the back bedroom to a hostile agent who said Thank you for your time. We're like - what? and we then said - so what if we offer less? and she - still in her very hostile attitude/behavior - replied it's 110. I (wife) then asked her why are you being so mean? Have we done something to offend you? She repled - well, I'm glad you asked - I told you over the phone it was 110 so why are you wasing my time? I (Wife) said - we certainly did not know that was cast in concrete - and I personaly did not know - and her reply - don't you talk to your husband Rod? I replied of course we talk all the time with each other - not sure what you mean by that. I said I don't like your behavior. She then apologized in a manner of sorts but still with aggressive attitude - and then said - Well - I've apologized twice now - what more do I need to do?

It's weird - that whole scene. Very upsetting.

Hi Rod & Leeshatto,

I'm way late for this one but it just popped up on my radar so here goes anyway. So sorry you had such a negative experience. If you haven't purchased you MH yet contact us. We have several MH specialists in your area that would love your business.

Today's "Manufactured" "Factory Built" Home is constructed exactly like any Site-Buit (Stick Built) Home. In most cases even better inasmuch as they are built in a indoor climatically controlled environment and inspected by a liecensed HUD inspector through every phase of construction.

As a RE Broker, Manufactured Home Dealer, General Contractor and Manufactured Home Contractor in California, Arizona, Oregon and Florida for the past 25 years I can assure you that having built equally as many site built projects as I have Manufactured Home projects that I would select a manufactured home any day.

As for financing? There are plenty of lenders out there willing to finance MH's if they meet the following requriements. http://activerain.com/blogs/johnarendsen

Please feel free to log onto our Truliahttp://www.trulia.com/blog/onthelevelcontractors/ or Active Rain bloghttp://activerain.com/blogs/johnarendsen for more comprehensive information about the MH Industry.

Or you can check our our website and give us a call or drop us an email. We are RE Brokers, Manufactured Home Dealers and licensed, bonded and insured General Contractors and have been actively engaged in the MH Industry statewide for almost 3 decades.

We also do "Lonnie Deals"

Realtors are like anyone. There are some nice ones and some bad ones. I'm sorry you ran into a bad one, but the good news is you don't have to use her and there are lots of other homes to choose from. If you are looking for friendly, knowledgable service check in with me when you have a chance. In addition to my real estate brokers license, I have a manufactured home dealers license.

PS dont let the last agent contact discourage you, if she calls back ask her what would happen if you offered more... you think $110 might be too low. That will make her wonder:)
