I had a negative experience dealing with the Sean Roland Real Estate & Mortgage TEam...

I was looking at a real estate magazine one day and saw pictures for a house at a very very low price (I was looking for my first house and did not have any experience in real estate). I decided to call the number in the magazine to ask a couple of questions about the house (i.e. location, number of rooms, etc.). The number was for the Sean Roland TEAM.

A lady told me that she would have someone call me back. When I got a call back, the man did not answer any of my questions and just said that I should come down to his office. I asked again about the house in the magazine, and he said that he will show me it.

When I went into his office, I found out that he was the mortgage agent and the real estate agent was some other guy (who was also at the office). He once again avoided answering any questions about the house in the magazine (I BEGAN TO SUSPECT THAT THE HOUSE IN THE MAGAZINE IS A FALSE AD TO LURE PEOPLE IN).

I was in a small office with these 2 guys (the mortgage agent and the real estate agent). To make a long story short, they took advantage of my inexperience in this area and pressure me to sign a "Buyer Representative Agreement".

At one point the mortgage agent gave me the papers and when I tryed to read it he said "oh, you do not want to sign it??".  They real estate agent then went on to explain this 6 month agreement while leaving out the most important part.... I CANNOT BUY REAL ESTATE WITHOUT THEM ACTING AS MY AGENTS, FOR IF I DO.... I MUST PAY THEM 3% OF ANY PROPERTY I BUY... EVEN IF THEY DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO HELP ME.

CONCLUSION: They falsely promote houses on their website and in magazines to lure people in. They put houses on their that they have no intention of showing you, simply so you think that if you sign with them ... you will have access to these properties. They pressure you to sign without reading the agreement ... they read you the agreement while leaving out important details.

NOW: Now, I cannot buy a property while under this agreement. ITs locked me in with them.... but I do not want to buy with them since they are liars and did not show me any homes that I was interested in.

Real estate

AUTHOR: Gemini - (Canada)

 Ive always found that properties in magazines are never still for sale. I asked my friend who is a real estate agent why? He said when they first choose the house for sale and by the time the magazine is in the consumers hand.. Its sold!! But they can find other similar homes so meetings are set up. Hope this helps

Similar bad experience with Sean Roland

AUTHOR: Kristine T - (Canada)

I would also advise consumers to not deal with Sean Roland.

Myself and two other individuals also had similar experiences and deeply regret ever meeting him.

I am very interested in talking with Mike Brown about his experiences. Our matter will be dealt with in  small claims court.
