We were interested in a boat Edwards Yacht Sales were posting. I contacted Kirk to try an arrage a chance to see this boat. After we finally got around to seeing it, we became even more interested in it. I told Kirk that we are interested and that we want to start the process of trying to purchase it. We started negotiating with the seller on the price. We got to a final agreement. I then started trying to complete the financing, insurance, survey, sea trial, etc. and have it all set up and ready to close. The seller made a request that we show pre-approval of finacing before they sign the sales agreement, and that the boat is reserved for us. I got them not pre-approval, but APPROVAL. We emailed Kirk the signed sales agreement, with the financial approval, and proof of deposit on the boat. He told me that we are all set and golden and that the sellers are signing the agreement and he will email the complete agreement back to me. Instead of an agreement, I recieve a phone call from Kirk telling me the seller went with a Cash Offer for the same amount right before signing the agreement with us. This is total BS. After depositing 10% of the purchase price into an escrow account and getting all the paperwork complete, which took total of 3 weeks, Kirk will tell me that a 2 min. phonecall will tear that down? Verbal agreements and emails are proof we had a deal and we were to be the buyers. There is something fishy going on with this deal and have caused us 3 weeks of lost time and a beautiful boat we were hoping to buy. Watch out when dealing with Edwards and their verbal agreements and emails worthless and they are not loyal to their clients. We tried to later contact Kirk to find out what happened, but he ignored our phonecalls and hung up after speaking with us for a few seconds. This is extremely unprofessional and you should not deal with him.
