Last week I got a phone call from a business that said they were looking for a Realtor to work with foreclosed homes. But my phone has been acting up and I didn't even know they called. I got the voice mail a couple days later. When I finally found out they called, I made a mental not to call back. Welp, I forgot. My fault. I didn't want to call back a week later to look like a jerk calling only when I have time..
So, I got the call again yesterday. YES! I returned the phone call right away and they said they were from US HUD. I admitted I never heard of them.
They said they were looking for EXCLUSIVE AGENTS for my area. I was like.. Oh yeah.. I'll fax the rep agreement. But they weren't going that way. He explained the info when I realized, it was a service. Cranberry Sauce!! Now I knew what was coming.
"Is this a service you offer?"
"Like a membership?"
He gave a canned response.
"How much does it cost?"
"We can waive the set up fee and it will be a monthly fee of $199.00/month"
"Umm... yeah! Not so much. But I thank you for calling"
So, this is just a notice to anyone that might get a voice mail from someone saying they need EXCLUSIVE AGENTS. It may not be as cool as it seems....
