In Johnstown, PA a Coldwell Banker Realtor and the Seller made my first homebuying experience a memorable one to say the least. Keep in mind that the Realtor was a "dual agent" (suppose to be working for the seller and buyer).
I had a Home Inspection done and had a concern regarding the electrical work. So a friend of mine made an appointment with his electrician to take a look at the electric work in the house to ease any concerns I might have. I contacted the Realtor (from work) and was instantly interrogated as to why would I want an electrician to look at the house. Then I was asked for the electrician's phone#. I replied that I didn't have the phone# and that my friend set up the appointment. The realtor got irate and said he wanted the # just in case he got a flat tire and needed to cancel the appointment. I again explained to the Realtor that my friend made the appt and if something happened and he (Realtor) could not make it he could call me and I would pass on the message to my friend. He then seemed like it made a difference that I was going to be there when the electrician came to look at the electrician.
That's not all...After I got home from work, the realtor called again and said that the seller " was tired of people walking through his house!!!" and the realtor agreed with him. Once again, the realtor questioned my reason to have an electrician look at the electrical work. The realtor and seller had a problem with me receiving peace of mind. I was paying for it, not them, right?????????????????
Bottom line, I DID exercise "MY RIGHT" to have an electrician look at the house before I bought it and was very pleased at the electrician's findings and advise. I would think twice (or more) before considering using Coldwell Banker as your realtor and I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT, again, WOULD NOT use a so called "dual agent". A dual agent looks out for him or herself and that's it.
