OMG!! i'm shaking so i apologize if this doesn't make sense. i sent an email to our realtor yesterday requesting copies of an executed listing agreement (mine isn't signed by him and there is no license number to compare to the one on the contract that i know is wrong) and copies of the rest of the executed docs ( i have the executed contract and that's it., no addendums, no seller's disclosure, nothing) he called me 6 times this morning, i was asleep because we are in a different time zone. when i did finally talk to him, he seemed to have a different tune like he was "super realtor" working for us. i called him out on the errors in the contract and told him that i know i have standing with trec if i decide to pursue it. he said he didn't want that. OK, are you ready for this?? he admitted that he failed to have us sign granting intermediary status in the listing agreement and that it was an honest mistake. i told him that didn't matter to me because i specifically told him before signing that i would NOT grant that under any terms, he worked for us only. i then told him that he left a paper trail showing what he tried to pull over on us. the contract says he represents buyer and seller as intermediary (even though he told us he does not represent the buyer), the mls shows no exclusive right to sell which is not what we agreed upon, etc. he admitted he proceeded with intermediary even though he knew we didn't sign that way in the listing agreement.
i told i am giving them a chance to make this right before i take action but i will not sign an amendment nor another document until the discrepancies in the contract are resolved. he then asked what he was supposed to do to make it right, and i told him to talk to his broker. i let him know that i understand if we file a complaint against the realtor, the broker is investigated too. he said his office manager is out until monday but he'll let me know. i then asked if he would talk to his manager or his broker and he said manager. in this situation, shouldn't he be willing to reach his manager immediately or go directly to his broker since the manager is absent. i would think this situation warrants immediate attention; am i getting blown off again?
i just told my husband, and he wants me to call an attorney. we can back everything up with a paper trail, and i now have this man's confession that he was trying to trick us. what should i do? man this just keeps getting worse! does anyone know of an honest real estate attorney we could consult?
