I got gouged.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have a shattered window. I called a lot of folks and only one would come. I was quoted a price and then it was more once the boss got involved. They need to order the glass and I will have to wait probably three weeks before I can get it installed. I am not happy but not stupid either. I'm not going to mess with the only provider I could find. Sometimes you just have to swallow hard.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

It's all about supply and demand, Sheila. I think there are home buyers out there who think they've been "gouged" in terms of the price of the home they bought... but it was all about supply and demand.

Hi Nina. You are right of course, but this wasn't handled well by this business. I hope they come through for me. TY    Sheila

Sheila, I feel your pain. I'm blessed in that I know a lot of contractors in the area who can steer me in the right direction, but I've had a few estimates in the past few years that had me shaking my head.

Hi Joan. There were more but no one was available until after labor day. They cater to summer visitors because they can really gouge them. TY     Sheila

Sheila, just FYI it typically takes 3 weeks for any custom window to be ordered and produced.
