I Like Using English for My Real Estate Transactions!

I'm bilingual myself. But I run my business using English. The contracts and forms I use are all in English.

Well I just had an offer come in on one of my properties. The agent who submitted the offer stated the following in the email with the contract:

"Here by the sales contract for the property about conform the receive, Thank you so much"

I'm not sure what in the world it means but the main thing is the contract itself. Hopefully we can get a ratified contract. Wish me luck, please!

I Like Using English for My Real Estate Transactions!

Yesterday I recieved a call from someone who called off one of my yard signs. The caller is a buyer, I think. It was so difficult to carry on a conversation that I just had to stop and tell him I'm sorry but I run my business in English and I really can't help him.

If someone who speaks another language that I don't know cannot speak English well enough to carry on a simple conversation, I can't do business with them.

I don't speak numerous languages, but I sure do know several agents in my office who do. Nothing wrong with a referral in this case.

I totally agree with you John. I have tried to do referrals as well. I do some rental properties but it's hard to refer someone when they are speaking totally in another language. It's frustrating for sure. I can understand a customer much more than an agent. Scary to me for an agent not to be able to clearly state what is in their clients best interest. I do not know how you represent someone that way.
