Went to a viewing with John Tringale in Medford and it was awful. The house was fine but he was the most unprofessional realtor I have ever met.
The only thing he did was lead us into the house. He didn’t have a key and we had to wait 20 minutes for the current tenant to arrive to the house, so I can’t even say he was good for unlocking the door.
We walked in and he eagerly interacted with the current tenant, making small talk, catching up. He mostly ignored the potential renters (us).
When he wasn’t schmoozing with the current tenant, he was answering calls on his cell phone, and MAKING calls, completely unavailable for questions from us about the rooms and rental property.
When we finally caught him between his phone calls, we asked questions to which he didn’t know the answer, or to which he answered vaguely.
I suppose that he treated us in a condescending and informal manner due to our age (early 20s) but that does not justify being unprofessional on the job.
No matter how young we look, we were there to do business and I didn’t get the impression that he was trying very hard to rent the house out to us.
I loved the house but I will hold out for other apartments shown by other realtors just to avoid paying John the finder’s fee and giving his company business. You have been warned.
