She effectively stopped the short sale of our home, and it will go into foreclosure. Their office will then sell it for far less than the short sale offer, and even FURTHER away from the offer we made the mortgage company last year.
But hey, they'll keep the whole commission, which is what it's all about right? Who I am, a poor working stiff trying to salvage a tiny slice of a credit rating when a few thousand dollars of commission for a large real estate company is at stake?? How are our million-dollar companies supposed to survive when greedy little families like mine irresponsibly find themselves laid-off?? Since we made the bone-headed decision to be good homeowners and taxpayers, why should we expect any mercy when someone needs a commission?? Or needs a giant loss that their tax guys can use as a write-0ff? I don't have any lobbyists working for me, so what did I expect anyway? Reason? Fairness?
Stick a fork in me, I'm done.
UPDATE: I wrote a "strongly worded" email to our mortgage company late today - they emailed our real estate agent and told them to "keep finding buyers and don't listen to Edina Realty". I have officially fallen down the rabbit hole.
