My family and I relocated to a new place and contacted Shannon Schreyer who was our realtor agent from The Jessica Hargis Realty company. Shannon walked us through few houses that her company represented. One of the houses was amazing. The serene backside environment with huge greenery and silence. It was the major attraction for all of us.
We were particular about the area and wanted a house that was backed by the wooden covering and did not want crowded place to stay. We confirmed from Shannon if that quietness was going to remain same or some kind of construction was in process. We were assured that the land belonged to Engineering Corp and the land could not be used for any kind of development.
We immediately closed the deal and submitted our offer. We paid for the house. After few days of moving into the house, we were informed by a neighbour that the PIT Soccer Complex’s construction was going to start soon. The project was already approved few months back.
It was a shock for us. The neighbour also confirmed that the concerned department carried meetings with the residents close to the project space about the concerns and questions. This was done to make sure that there are no problems later on. The project was of a commercial enterprise with 6 indoor as well as outdoor soccer fields.
So, it was obvious that our agent knew about the project and purposefully ignored to share the details. The agent knew that we would not have made the purchase after knowing about the project. It was unprofessional and entirely unfaithful behaviour from their end.
This is not it. After lying to us, they rejected to take any responsibility. We tried to solve the problem and wanted them to provide alternative to the solution. We were not trying to start a fight. After understanding the mess that they got us into, the first thing that we did was calling Shannon’s personal number to ask for a justification and further procedure to get us another place. We tried to call Shannon and the company’s number as well. However, they ignored all our calls and shut us off.
It continued for some time. They blocked our numbers and chose not to take any responsibility of the matter. I emailed them after trying all their numbers and they replied saying that nothing was noted as such and they do not take any responsibility of things that were not documented in the file.
What a heck? We wanted to be polite after buying that house out of lie. But, they were the ones being jerks and pushed us to write this report against them. We cannot make any legal allegations as we do not have any proof of the oral promises made. But, we can certainly warn many others for not working with The Jessica Hargis Realty company.
If you want a trustworthy agent, stay away from these goons. You can find many agents who would be true to their profession and their clients, unlike The Jessica Hargis Realty company.
