This is our first time buying a house. This woman was recommended to us. She seemed nice enough, we met her at her office and she talked us through the process of buying a house. We showed her our pre-approval and what our budget was. This was over two months ago. Since then me and my husband are always on zillow and realtor.com looking for things within our budget. This woman never sends us leads or house suggestions. Like if we don’t call her, we never hear from her. And when we find a house and go see it, she comes with us but throughout the entire tour she acts disapprovingly towards the house. Makes us doubt what we’re seeing (because honest theyre all fixer uppers, which we dont mind..but apparently she does) And discourages us from making bids on it. “I think you should pass on this one you guys” She’s said this to us three times already…And we always listen because we feel she’s experienced on the matter and is probably looking out for us. There was this one house that we put a bid on regardless even though she disapproved of it. And she added contingencies on it (that the buyer needed to replace this and that even though we told her we didn’t mind doing the work outselves bc it was small stuff) which ended up making the buyer refuse to take our bid even though we were the first ones to bid on it and went slightly above the asking price. Or she refused to allow us to make an offer on a house because she wanted us to see it in person first (we couldn’t go out to see it that day but wanted to make a bid anyway because the neighborhood we want is very sought after plus the house information she sent us looked fine, roof had recently been replaced etc) But she told us to just wait until the morning and by morning the seller that accepted another offer.
Now this woman lives in the neighborhood we are looking at, and apparently she knows everybody. Because we waves and says hi to the neighbors of the house she is showing us. And i’m not white. This is an extremely white neighborhood. My husband and i have been quietly talking about this a bit today and we are wondering if this woman is just secretly racist and doesn’t want us in her neighborhood so she keeps giving us the run around while allowing her friends to buy up the houses we want…Do we sound crazy or is this a very real possibility?
