A) He lied to me about the mortgage lender sending my paperwork off, as I know for fact she didn't.
B) Let slip that he used to work with the seller and told me I could definitely "trust" her.
It's not uncommon for them to help their homies out. The lady who listed my condo for lease is a neighbor and friend of my mom. She did an awesome job too!
You should pull out TBH. Pure sketch armstrong shit right there. Break ties with that agent too. Side deals like that are just unethical. Make sure you get the necessary paperwork done though.
When my mom listed our old house in the burbs, she went with this lady who overpriced it and said we didn't need to make any changes/improvements/decluttering. She basically put no effort in and just put the listing up for us. We heard from her maybe twice in the six weeks. So my mom went to her brokerage and told her manager the problem and he gave us a release form to sign so we could unlist with them. Had to make sure all that was done because we didn't want her coming out of nowhere and trying to take partial commission from the sale.
We found out later that she severely undersold one of our neighbors' houses. Like 15% lower than the asking price. WEAK! Especially in a high demand area like our neighborhood.
We ended up listing with one of those billboard agents. He was awesome.
