Surprisingly, the saga continued. This troll agent made a completely B.S. offer on the property to try to confuse the home owners further:
On behalf on my client , I would like to submit an offer of $ 1.350.000 with financing , my client has already been approved by his bank
Please confirm that you receive this offer and submit it to the owner
Ricky – who is your client and have they seen the unit? The first and only interaction we’ve received from you is when our seller client copied us on an email exchange where you were soliciting her to pay you 6% because you had a buyer through another broker? We just want to make the best use of time for everyone here. If you have a serious offer, please submit a full REBNY Financial Statement, pre-approval letter or proof of funds and biography of your buyer. Thank you.
Sir – My client saw the unit on Saturday , my client ‘s name is Jimmy [redacted], the broker that brought him to me is a Developer/commercial /broker, he is a very good friend of the buyer and he is also my client I have been renting his properties , So that is why he wanted to co-broke with me since he is bringing Mr Jimmy [redacted] the buyer . I hope you understand the whole thing .Feel free to call me anytime
Any way please find attached the pre-approved letter from the bank , Mr Jimmy [redacted] is a well-known Plastic Surgeon
So Let’s move forward , this is a serious offer and buyer
Ricky – our counter is $1,585,000. Just to be absolutely clear, this is our exclusive listing which is listed in RLS and public websites such as StreetEasy. There is no co-exclusive. The only co-broke commission offered to buyers’ agents is 3% in RLS. In this case, it would be 3% to [redacted]. If you have an outside referral agreement with another broker, then that is between [redacted] and the other broker and not us. In any case, the commission owed to the agent(s) representing the buyer will not exceed 3%. Please acknowledge that you understand this. Thank you.
Sir, The commission split is clear and understood .
I think the apartment is overpriced , my offer is based on the recent sale of the year 2016 , that I got directly from the management yesterday which you will find attached ,Even if you based the average price per square foot for 2015 on the 2 bedrooms only , the average price per square foot come to $1445,so that makes my offer very close to the market value . So please have the sellers make a serious counter offer .
Thank you for your understanding
Thank you Ricky, we’ve discussed with the owners and are sticking to our counter of $1,585,000. If you can get them up, let us know. Thank you for your interest!
