We were working with Frank Glaab of Gulf Gateway Realty to find us a home in Cape Coral FLA. He had submitted an offer on a house for us. It was accepted. We had 72 hrs to get our deposit in. We signed a sale and purchase contract. On day 2at 1220pm he called selling agent and told her we could not come up with financing. We are preapproved by Wells Fargo. He had the preapproval.Also the sales contract from the selling of my house. I think he was mad we wouldn't use his finance guy.That same day I was speaking to him and he was acting like we were still working on the deal when he knew better..I had to call selling agent on day 3 to find out what was going on.That was when she told me he withdrew the offer said we didn't have financing. So we lost that house.He flat out lied about us!!Then on another offer he submitted,he said our approval was contigent on sale of our home. OUR HOUSE IS SOLD!! He had contract stating so. [continued below]....
..... So we lost that offer because seller didn't want to risk.. I called the broker Henry Albrecht to complain. He flipped out on us,he was literally screaming at me. He was rude and threatened to sue us for slander if I complained to BBB or Board of Realtors. I found another agent. She submitted an offer on a house for us,that unfortunaltly was listed with Gulf Gateway. This Agent "richard " was nasty and rude to her.Never got back to her and did not present our offer to the seller. Beware of this realty company. I feel if you are not buying the 400,000-100,000,000 dollar homes they treat you like dirt and could give a crap about you and your needs. They have terrible ethics and apparently do not care at all about their selling or buying Clients

I really wish I could have done more to help these folks

AUTHOR: Henry Albrecht - (USA)

I really wish I could have done more to help these folks get the house they wanted in SW Florida.  My agent, Frank Glaab, and I tried everything but it was ultimately the Seller's decision to not extend the timeframe in the contract.  I felt it was unfair that these clients blamed us.  I understand that they were sad/mad but the situation was 100% out of our control. Please feel free to email me at for more information or to really know me.  I was voted Realtor of the Year in 2012 and Broker of the Year in 2015 by the Cape Coral Association of Realtors.  I have been a Realtor for 22 years in SW Florida and my reputation means everything.  Thank you to the folks at this website for allowing me to post a rebuttal.  Thank you to my family, friends and colleagues who know me best and convinced me to post a rebuttal.
