I have seen Terrie Cox – RE/MAX Equity Group’s advertising all over town, in the newspaper and on line for years.
I have seen her listings in my neighborhood, so i thought she would be a good choice to have list my house.
She listed my house (north of $700,000 +) and it sat for 9 months with very little activity.
At the end of the listing period, she practically begged me to renew the listing.
During the listing I had asked for copies of flyers, ads she had run and what my house needed to get sold.
She very quickly declined and told me the house was significantly overpriced for the market.
That shocked me, because she was the one that set the price in the first place.
I did not renew the listing and went with another brokerage in town.
When I was referred to a very experienced agent in that company, i was very relieved.
That agent (which will remain nameless) asked me why I thought my house didn’t sell.
I said price! Fortunately I was wrong. My new agent took the listing at a price $55K higher than Terrie and got it sold in 3 weeks.
I pinned down my agent and asked her why my house didn’t get sold with Terrie, she practically winced in pain and I had to drag it out of her.
She indicated that Terrie has a bad reputation in town and other agents don’t like working with her.
Some , if not most don’t like showing her listings. She tries to represent the seller and buyer, I guess that makes her more money.
That is a very sad reflection on her and her brokerage. Shame, shame, shame.
