This is not a lenghty story, but I did get ripped off from the firm I worked for. .....
The Company is "Buyers Resource / Advantage first mortgage"
The owner is Scott Hardy
The story is this....
My job is to protect home buyers. I am a Real eatate buyer agent. That was also our companys nich. I loved and still love what I do even though I am with a different firm now.
From time to time we would get home buyer leads that either came in from ads, or in house, or even from your own sphere of influence. The process is the same. If some one wants to purchase a home, I routinely counsel the buyer, then send then
the homes they want to see on paper, then I would help them find there home. If they are not in the state I am licensed I would then refer them to a good buyer agent where they live. Sounds simple huh.
Well every Real Estate office has a "Broker" in charge. His or her duties are to assist and train the agents. I am an agent. I went to the broker because I needed to know where or who we refer business to, for folk that want to purchas a home in Maryland. She then gave me the name and number of a company.
After couseling the client, I referred the client to the company and buyer agent in Maryland.
Well to make a long story short, due to poor managment in the company, the broker was let go. Later our BUYERS RESOURCE went under. At least the real estate side. All of the agents went to different companys.
When I went to collect one of my last checks the owner decided to only pay me HALF of what they owed me. His reasoning was
" You were not suppose to sell off company leads ".
I did not hide in some back alley and refer that deal to the other company because I was being sneaky. I was told to by my boss...THE BROKER who the owner hired. I followed instructions. I did as I was told. And I was punished.
I ask you. Is that a way to run a business. I WANT REVENGE!!!
just a side note.
They are advertising that they have more offices than they do.
They are advertising that their agent only represent buyers.
That is false. They do not have ANY agents as of this writing.
They lost over half of their loan officers.
They are advertising homes that are already sold to get people
to call in.
And if you have any doubt simply call and ask for an agent. They will give you to the new broker. His name is Adam. They give
you to him because there is no one else.
