I had an awful experience with A Plus Realty. The owner assigned me to his agent Manny.
At first was great and very responsive however when I finally found a house I wanted to put an offer on, Manny’s green colors showed time and time again.
He apparently has been in realty for three years but I felt like I knew more than him, it was very very stressful.
If you happen to be lucky and no challenges present themselves in an offer, these guys might be for you.
Unfortunately, a lot of challenges presented themselves during my sale and every time I looked to Manny for guidance all I got was crickets.
My sale was dragged out weeks and weeks and I blame my realtor for a lot of that. Manny didn’t get me the answers or documents we needed in a timely manner.
He relied on everyone else to get us what we needed, which meant no one was helping to move the sale along.
When I got fed up with people not stepping up and doing their job, I had to step in and put heat on people. Every day it was one frustration after another.
Another part of the problem was the lawyer Luigi R. Petruzziello, Esq., which Manny recommended.
If you ever are offered the opportunity to work with Luigi – run. He is extremely lazy and TWICE asked me to correct HIS mistakes when developing condo documents. That is extremely unprofessional.
So many of my friends asked if I was going to switch realtors and if I could have I 100% would have.
However, I felt like I was too far into the process and things would be set back more than they were, so I just had to stick it out and hope it would all come together.
The final kicker was when a co-worker was asking me when my walk through was.
I had no idea what she was talking about and though it involved the closing office.
I called my closing lawyer and she said I should absolutely do a walk through and to call my realtor ASAP.
I was supposed to close in 4 hours and when I called Manny to ask him about a walk through, he acknowledged he just forgot to arrange it for me. He FORGOT. This is his job and he forgot.
I realize now it’s common knowledge to ALWAYS have a walk through with your realtor and my realtor just plain forgot.
All Manny cared about that point was the commission check. He barely gave me a congratulations when I finally got the keys.
I hope he is spending the $$$ he made off me well! If commission was based on performance he certainly wouldn’t have taken home much of anything.
