LOL These realtors are steering you wrong.

1) We posted just on Zillow, and had a house under contract in 15 days. I hadn't even received my yard signs from Amazon yet.

2) TREC forms CAN be used by Owners selling directly to buyers. Don't let these highly-paid form-fillers lie to you. From TREC's own form page as of a few minutes ago:

"Notice Regarding Contract Forms

"As public records, contract forms adopted by the Texas Real Estate Commission are available to any person. Real estate license holders are required to use these forms.

"However, TREC contract forms are intended for use primarily by licensed real estate brokers or sales agents who are trained in their correct use. Mistakes in the use of a form may result in financial loss or a contract which is unenforceable. Persons using these forms assume all risks associated with their proper use.

"If you are obtaining the forms for possible use in a real estate transaction, you should contact a real estate license holder or an attorney for assistance. TREC cannot provide legal advice to the public on private contractual matters.

"TREC does not promulgate listing or buyer representation agreements, property management contracts, forms for commercial property, or residential leases (other than temporary residential leases used in connection with a sale). Contact your attorney or a real estate trade association for such forms."

My office is in the 77024 zip code (Memorial City Mall area). We work all over the Memorial area and can assist you. I have assisted families that were planning on moving their elderly parents in the past and would be happy to assist you. The following is a review on Zillow from a Seller client that I assisted.

"Mark is relational and knowledgeable. We hired Mark to help my 84 year old Mom in selling her home. He was patient and worked very well with her. He was quick to get back to me when I needed him. He helped us locate a fantastic estate sale consultant. He is very involved in the newest technology so we were always aware of what was going on sometimes to the minute!"

Let me know if I can be a source of information or of any help to you!

SIRVA HAS BEEN AWFUL! The moving coordinators were absolutely horrible and under estimated how much stuff we had and therefore said our packing & moving would take place on 1 day. We had a 3000 sq ft house so that is not possible and then made my family try to figure out a solution when we had booked hotel stays already so we had someone to stay. They then didn't have a big enough truck to load everything or enough people to help so my husband had to help them. Why do we pay if we end up doing the work?!

Then on delivery, the technicians that were supposed to come out to help us hook everything back up never came. We had items damaged, items lost and now SIRVA is denying our claim to fix them or get money to replace them.

They have the worst customer service and I will tell anyone I can not to use them.

If you want to you can. Did you sign an agreement with your realtor? If so, you'd want to make sure that you terminate the agreement.
