The building that Davis and I are currently living in is for sale. We live in one of the four units, and the selling agent, Jamie, has contacted us several times about showing our apartment. The first time, he just took some pictures. About 2 weeks ago, we got another request for a different agent to bring by a buyer, which went really well. I figured any other showings would go that well. I was wrong. A fiasco has ensued.
- Last Saturday we set 1:00 as a time for a different agent to show it to a potential buyer; at 1:30 we found out they were going to be at least another hour, so we told them to reschedule.
- They tried to reschedule for Wednesday by tell us at 2:00 they wanted to see it at 5:30. I told them NO and that our lease allows us a 24 hour advance notice (my first step towards not being taken advantage of!). They set it for Thursday at 5:30. After cleaning our house from top to bottom, we found out at 4:30 on Thursday they couldn't make it. Immense irritation has set in.
- Yesterday morning, Jamie told us the same buying agent wanted to bring by another potential buyer at 3:00 today. And at 2:30 that agent calls me to tell me she has to reschedule.
At this point, I'm just about ready to tell Jamie that this other agent may no longer come. We've been burned by her 3 times now, and I am fed up, especially since we've put our lives on hold for her.
The other area where I have decided I'm not going to be taken advantage of is at work with a certain co-worker, but I won't discuss the details here. It's about time I stand up for myself and start telling people, "NO."
