They placed a Lien on the property I listed with them

I signed a Vacant Land Listing Agreement for $8625 dated 6/5/2015 and stating: This agreement does not guarantee a sale. I declined an offer for $7500 which the realtor/broker got very upset about and told me I owed broker $750 even though no sale was made. I thought that was the end of it. Now I am selling the land and a lien pops up that I did not know about for this sales agreement which lists the date of the agreement incorrectly. At any rate, I was never served or mailed any notice so that I could respond which I certainly would have as I did not agree to the offer made so no sale was made to pay a commission on. There is no statement on the "Lien" that it was delivered to me so that I would have time to reply. I can't believe this fraudulent lien was filed. I don't know how these people sleep at night!

User's recommendation: Berkshire Hathaway Files Fraudulent Liens.

They are kicking us out of rental home

Hathaway is going back on their word and not allowing my family to renew their lease. Not only are they liars, they waited 3 months to tell me they were lying and I now have only 3 months to move my family. The reason they gave me for going back on their word was that if they allowed a 3 month lease it would be inconvenient for them to rent the home at that time (September). They profited off the sale of my home as well as my leasing one of their properties but are discarding me like a tissue. Beware to anyone doing business with this company for any reason, They are gutless, spineless, cowards with rotten souls that don't care about tenants.

User's recommendation: DO NOT RENT from them unless you like homeless shelters.

Because of ur agent I am now a disabled, homeless vet.

Ur agent and I were suppose to sign a lease for an apartment Monday. She has cancelled 3 times this week and I told her that I have to be out of my apartment no later than Monday. She won't answer or return calls and after I went to her office today for our scheduled lease signing she just didn't show up. Now I'm faced with the realization that I will be homeless as of Monday and she obviously doesn't care about a disabled vet being screwed over and being left homeless because of her. This is so unprofessional.

User's recommendation: Stay away from this place. It truly sucks.

Do not use

Last year I entered into contract for a property 59 Miller Hill Dr, Lagrangeville, NY listed by: Michelle Ayala Berkshire Hathaway Home Services 1100 Route 55 Suite 201 Lagrangeville, NY 12540 We entered into this contract with the assumption the realtor did due diligence in understanding the fiscal integrity of the owner. My home in CT was “sold” and just a few weeks short of setting a closing date, a $440,000 lien popped up in the property, According to my attorney the seller, a corporation that flips homes, is well known to have serious financial issues including but not limited to tax delinquencies. The realtor suggested I move into this property as a rental while the owner attempted to resolve the IRS lien, fortunately I am not that stupid and I moved to terminate the contract, losing my $525 appraisal and almost $830 in water testing (the water test failed). While I had my deposit returned, I am out over $1000 due to a seller with serious delinquencies that were not disclosed. It is evident that Berkshire Hathaway should engage in due diligence in screening clients. Remarkably the house is back on the market with an unresolved tax issue that is basically contingent on selling the house. So, another unsuspecting home buyer may find themselves in the same situation. I am out almost $1300 and the kick in the gut was that the seller wanted me to give him the appraisal I paid for to help with his negotiation with IRS. Additionally, the seller had substantial building code issues. Collateral damage of this real estate transaction gone bad is that I had to delay the closing of my current house which is going to end up costing me $10,000. I do not understand why Berkshire and this agent would represent a client with a negative financial history. Engaging a client of this nature has resulted in significant financial loss to me. I sincerely hope you take action, drop this client and avoid financial damage to potential buyers

Can't agree more. If they not worried about legal butt covering they are looking for loopholes to exploit to withhold deposits, charge fees etc.

They failed to train their people on scheduling appointments scheduling or approving appointments for their clients, not telling them and have a buyer come when the sellers are home. They don't communicate with each other and are not one big happy family. They want cookie cutter hgtv sales anything else they are lost puppies.

But that's what the real estate industry wants franchises, not Berkshire employees just sub contractors to push their brand. Do not let the name fool you here.

Don't trust your agent even if daughter-in-law

We down sized to older 50s classic house. Yes there was work to be done. But to have our agent lie, belittle, cover up items. Is friggin wrong. The seller was also a realtor. We are taking her and her husband (realtor) to court. Now the house had old built ins. But they also had some other items that were considered built in. And was a selling point to my wife. But we're removed. Items were not mentioned in contract, but our daughter in law made us out to be fools , liars, just stupid old trashy people.. she didn't even hand us keys .. I understand that the seller (realtor &seller) cut a deal with my daughter in law. ... well hopefully she won't have to be drug into court for lying and not doing as she so swore to do as a real estate agent.

They did the opposite here and refused to physically mark house as contingent or under contract which ticked off the buyers no end . Then I think just to check up on the house scheduled bs appointments..

This crew does what ever they want.It's seems there are few stands in Berkshire wether it's ethics, knowledge or negotionation skill. Our realtor a poor counter offer/negotiation person rushes, uses high pressure techniques to get a quick close/sign. We had an a signed agreement but other family hadn't seen the house so they wanted another 4 hours to view and reconsider. Realtor said no to 4 hours on above ask price offer.

Other buyers/offers he held to high numbers even there were buyers that would forgoe inspections, pay cost etc. on slighty lower numbers.

Negotiation is a necessity but a professional would know when to back off or how much pressure to apply. This is not Berkshire.

Berkshire is the perfect example of why many sellers want to do for sale by owner and view agents as used car lot salesman They failed to fully represent us only worrying about closing the deal sometimes blowing a deal in the process not conceeding or giving some simple stuff including less than 12 hours to get someone out to the house for a second opinion before signing. They said sign first then get your second look.

And the offer was above average. The blew other deals obviously bad counter offers but there tactics turn into nothing but high pressure sales pitches.

People don't like to be pushed and will back off the minute they think they are purposely pressured. But as you noted commission is all they are worried about along with another closed deal.

Signed them to sell our home. We did more to sell it than the agent. Late documents. Agent acted like we were not as important as other clients. Complained to Vice President of branch and service didn’t get any better.

This is true. This is the experience that we had with that agent.

If they were so "excellent" I would not be writing this! Be in my situation and see how you would feel after an agent lies to your face!
