Realtor walks through my house.
Realtor: “Your house is really bland.”
Not sorry. I don’t ‘stage’ my house for a day-to-day basis. Also, people who buy houses can see right through the bullshit of home staging. Also, even if I were a decorator, I’ve lived here such a short period of time, I wouldn’t have had any time to decorate.
Her: “We will work with your schedule and we won’t come until after four pm”.
Less than 48 hours pass.
Her: “Hey, we’re going to need access to your house for a full day to do cleaning and staging and photos. Also, you cannot be there”.
She wasn’t impressed when I said “Feel free to come next Saturday.”
Her: “No actually, I’ve booked the cleaners and stagers and photographer for Wednesday,” she says.
THAT’S NOT MY FUCKING PROBLEM. Less than 48 hours ago you told me that you wouldn’t come until after four pm, and now you want me out of my house for an entire day, during the week. Where the fuck am I supposed to work? Starbucks isn’t exactly the confidential environment needed to my job.
The next day, which was Saturday.
Her (at 8:30 pm on a Saturday night): “Hey [Vee] can we come and do a walk through of your house prior to Wednesday so we know what we need to bring for staging?”
Me: “Please come tomorrow.”
Her: “No actually, I don’t work weekends.”
UMMMMMMMMMM YES YOU DO. YOU’RE A FUCKING REALTOR. YOU PRETTY MUCH WORK EVERY WEEKEND. IF YOU DON’T WORK WEEKENDS WHY ARE YOU ASKING ME FOR A WALK THROUGH AT 8:30 ON A SATURDAY NIGHT?
Her: “I’ll come Monday or Tuesday.”
Me: “AFTER FOUR PM.”
Her: “After four.”
Monday – Realtor knocks on door at 3:00 PM.
Me: “I cannot give you access to my house right now.”
Her: “Oh, well I was just driving through the neighbourhood and thought I could pop in and get what I needed done.”
Me: “Please come back after four.
Her: “Okay, I’ll come back after four.”
SHE DOESN’T COME BACK… AT ALL MONDAY NIGHT. I CALLED AND TEXTED, STAYED HOME ALL FUCKING EVENING WAITING FOR HER. SHE JUST IGNORED ME.
Today. 5:00 PM.
Me: “Is anyone coming to my house tonight?”
Her: “Are you home now?”
Her: “I’ll come soon.”
Me: “When is soon?”
Her: “I’ll be there soon.”
Seriously, it could take exactly zero effort to be considerate and provide a window of time in which she thought she might be coming through.
Who acts like this in a professional setting and gets away with it?
