Do not use William Raveis Real Estate in Andover, in particular do not do business with Marianne Cashman, she is very unprofessional, and unethical.
I visited an open house conducted by her, and she did not provide any assistance, any information, or any interest in selling the property.
I had a hard time to get her attention to provide the information I needed on the house and it was only one more potential buyer in the location.
She made us feel we were being inconvenient. It was the worst experience I ever had in an open house, and I have been through a few.
I made an offer on the property for 12,500 more than the listed price, pre-approved and meeting all the requirements.
In mean while she had asked for all kinds of documents sign by us, ask how fast we could do an inspection on the location, made me find an inspection company and put them on standby for inspection, she also called my mortgagee officer and ask personal questions about my house that I own outright, is not on the market, and has nothing to do with the new purchase.
She had no business to reach out to my mortgagee officer before accepting the offer. At the end of the day she left a message saying my offer was no accepted with no reason, and when we call to find out the reason she does not answer the phone.
It is obvious she had either personal or financial interest in doing business with the other buyer. I thought she was working for the seller? I am going to be shopping for other location, but I am hoping they not to come across them on my next purchase or that will enough reason to walk away.
