Dear Mr. Negotiator,
It was a pleasure working with you recently. I enjoyed our conversations and our exciting games of phone tag. It was so much fun anticipating whether or not you would accept the offer that the Buyer brought to your bank. We had such spirited conversations as I tried to explain the values of the neighboring homes and how much repair work was needed for the home being sold.
If you remember, throughout our relationship I spent hours trying to satisfy your demands. I took photographs and sent them to you and filled out all the paperwork you requested. I even managed to get the buyer to come up $2500 on an offer that really was above market value to begin with. I bent over backwards trying to please you. I really thought we had something together, but in the end you rejected me.
"Not enough" were your exact words if I remember correctly. Market value is market value, Darling. I can't believe you don't see that!! I was on the MLS today and I saw that you've listed your home with another agent, and at a cheaper price. The offer I presented you with was $137,500, but you are now offering your wares to the public at $125,000. That is so sad. To think you could have had so much more with me!! You could have avoided foreclosure costs but you would have none of it. If you must be stubborn, then go ahead and pay the price.
Quite frankly, I too have moved on. I found another negotiator who works as a partner with me. He listens to what I say about market value and seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Does he give me everything I want? No, but he is kind and knows how to compromise. He is very reasonable too. In fact, we closed our first deal together today and you know what? We BOTH got paid. Isn't that how a good relationship is supposed to be?
I do wish you the best with your new agent. I know she won't get you as good a deal as I was offering, but then again, some guys don't know what they had until they lose it.
I'll see you around...
