Anyone have experience with Fairfax Realty? We called them multiple times about a listing, and even emailed, but got no reply or callback. Do they even want to sell houses?

Why would you want to do business with a company that doesn't seem to want your business?

I don't often agree with Bill but when I do, he's right.

Because they found a house they like and well, you know houses tend to be pretty unique. It's not like you can just go to another car dealership.

If you're in the real estate market you should have your own agent - let him/her deal with Fairfax Realty.

All good points... basically we are just starting to think about moving and had have kept our eyes out for possible houses. This one popped up, but I had some questions since very little info and only one pic was posted online. So, we tried to reach out to Fairfax Realty and never heard back. Pretty strange, made me wonder if they are legit.

Call ask to speak to the manager. You are meat on a hook to these peps so when they hear you are un-represented that means 1. you are a potential 'customer' as a buyer and if you buy one of their listings the agent could get the full (5%) COMMISHY.

If you dont get a call back within 24 hours call the owners directly or you can just call them to start with if youre fed up with the broker. BTW if you do purchase it without representation tell them you want 3% credited to you in closing (that would be a typical co-op broker commission).

If you're really interested in the house you could knock on the door or leave a note for the owners. I'm sure the sellers would be interested to know their realtor isn't serving them. Good luck house hunting.
