Michelle Chauvin became a broker with i Realty Properties in Henderson, Nevada. After any prospective seller or buyer reads what I have to say, they should run from this realtor. I will try to explain what how Michelle Chauvin destroyed me financially. In 2005, my house was appraised at $600,000 free and clear. A good business person will always negotiate in real estate matters. Realtors always try to get a 6% commission. I negotiated a 5% commission with Michelle Chauvin. How I wish I had never set eyes on her. She turned out to be the Angel of financial death for me. She placed her real estate sign on my front lawn, staged my furniture and brought in a small model boat which she placed at the top of my staircase, and told me that she practiced Feng Shui, a Chinese practice.
She told me she always sold a house when she did this. Well, naive me, buys her story in a hot, hot real estate market. I truly believed she would sell my house. Why not? It sits on 10,000 sq. ft. and is over upgraded with a Pella leaded glass front door. Las Vegas had never seen a hot real estate market like this. And even houses that needed a llot of work, with no upgrades were selling for $600,000 plus. Every house was selling, people were paying more than the houses were worth, there were multiple offers, but Michelle Chauvin never brought one buyer to look at my house in almost a year that she had my listing. I kept giving her extentions. Because I believed that she would sell my house, I bought a new Lexus with my 850 fico score and took on $700 a month in car payments.
I planned on paying it off, when my house sold. Instead, I got stuck with $700 a month car payments, when Michelle Chauvin after almost a year of having my listing, came to me and said, "I really tried to sell your house. I give up." Then she was gone and the hot real estate market crashed. To make a long story short, after four years of paying $700 a month in Lexus car payments, I caved in. I got my car repossessed, went through all of my savings, panicked and got into a Reverse Mortgage on a property that was free and clear. My house was appraised at $317,000 and then the nightmare got worse. This Reverse Mortgage company gave me $201,984.07 in credit, stole $215,000 and perpetrated illegal predatory lending fee's. I am now living off what equity is left. I am now with a law group that found me through the list of reverse mortgage victims. The courts forced this mortgage company to release the list.
I had to put up $4,000 of what is left of my equity to opt into this nationwide pending lawsuit against this mortgage company. I am positive I will get my house back free and clear and a monetary cash settlement. The worst part of my story is it took me forty years to have this property free and clear. It took six years to figure out why Michelle Chauvin didn't show my property once, blew the hot real estate market for me and caused me enough grief for ten life times. The answer is everytime a potential buyer called on my property, she would take them to another property for a 6% commission. Other realtors would always get 3% on a 5% commission. Michelle Chauvin would only get half of a 3% commission giving her a 1 1/2 % commission, instead of a 3% on a 6% commission. Yes, Michelle Chauvin sold me out, knowing my property was free and clear. Sellers and buyers, stay away from Michelle Chauvin. She will sell you out.
