Wendy Atkinson with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Innovative Real Estate is easily one of the most unethical real estate “professionals” with whom I’ve worked since my wife and I, first-time home buyers with sterling credit and a healthy down payment, began looking earlier this year (2013).
Wendy served as the listing agent for a home we wanted to purchase.
Our offer–well over the listing price–was accepted by the sellers and we went forward with inspection.
The sellers backed out of the contract–using an obscure inspection resolution clause–because they had another, even higher cash offer that came in after ours.
After, mind you, we’d already dropped cash for the inspection and other loan-related expenses.
Wendy wouldn’t return our agent’s calls throughout the debacle.
If the rest of her agency is anything like her, avoid these folks at all costs.
