  • Karl and I connected, but did no business

      I had the misfortune of working with Mr. Forell. I was an extremely serious buyer with intentions of buying a certain home. This will be my second house purchase. During my first house purchase I found myself running into the problem of putting CASH offers on houses and somehow right before i'd try to buy them they would sell. So with this house purchase I didn't want to make the same mistake, so I found a home I wanted to see that looked beautiful and exactly what i was looking for right down to the kitchen layout and location. I expected the home to have some problems based on the price point which I could have easily been able to afford. So I wasn't looking to mess around this time. As I stated previously unfortunately I had Karl Forell which I will gladly go into detail about our THREE phone conversations we had. Phone conversation 1 (6 Minutes) 12:03PM(February 18, 2019): I was connected to him via "Alex from Zillow." After becoming in contact with Karl I explained my entire situation and what I was looking to accomplish. He seemed like he was the PERFECT realtor at first and I was so hopeful. Phone Conversation 2 (7 Minutes) 5:46PM (February 18, 2019): We went more in detail about the two properties, and I told him about my concerns with the properties. Which he went on to say my concerns were not problems TEXT MESSAGE 3:32 PM (February 20, 2019): “Hello Karl, this is xxxxxx xxxxx. What time are we looking at the house tonight? I forgot exactly what we agreed upon.” Phone conversation 3 (2 Minute call) 4:33PM (February 20, 2019): I start the call saying “Hello Karl, I just wanted to confirm if you got my text?” I think he may have misunderstood and replied “Yes, I receive texts.” After knowing he got my text I became a bit frustrated but continued the conversation with high hopes. I then said “Are we still on for the showing tonight?” He says “What showing? You never got back with me?” Looking back on my emails I never received ANYTHING from Karl Forell other than “Alex from Zillow” sending me over his information. I was the only one who made contact and at that point I knew he didn’t take me seriously whatsoever.I went on to say "All I’m waiting on is being able to see this home. I honestly don’t have time. If I need to I will contact the listing agent because I just want to get into the home as soon as possible” He replied “Go ahead and work with the listing agent” and hung up. Immediately I go to call Alex to inform her about what had happen and she didn’t seem to care and even seemed annoyed. I already waited a full TWO days to ACCOMMODATE HIS SCHEDULE. He doesn’t care at all about your time unless you have deeper pockets than the next guy. I have never wrote a review in my life but I can’t believe he had the audacity to waste my time like that. I find Mr. Forell to be an extremely inconsiderate man who only cares about himself. I would never work with him again and I don't advise you to.
