This is for Steve Copper, specifically, who is one of the head honchos of Golden Bear Management. in Littleton, CO.
We saw a house he had advertised for rent and were really excited about it (our current landlord decided to sell our house and not tell us until mid-April that we had to be out by June 1st at the latest).We gave Steve our applications (along with the $70 fee) that same day.
My husband was working when my daughters and I saw the house, so I had to wait until a couple of days later to show it to him because he’s working 60+ hours a week right now. We were all set and Steve officially offered it to us.
The very next day, I got an email stating that our bank had revised our home loan qualifications and we could have a much higher loan that we thought we could, so I immediately went into rush mode (and took off from work, which was unpaid) and investigated which option was best for us — to rent Steve’s house or buy it outright with our loan.
Well, come to find out the very next day, Steve said we were “taking too long” to decide our options and he gave the house away to another family.
From when I first saw the house until when this happened was ONE WEEK total — “too long”??? He did this with NO WARNING WHATSOEVER or any mention of a “deadline” for us to decide.
He was a real bastard about it. So now I’ve lost a week of valuable time searching for the right place for my family to live, and I’m back at square one.
This guy is greedy, rigid, uncommunicative, inflexible, and a total businessman who sees everything in terms of HIS PROFIT and ONLY his profit. Thanks Steve!
