I came across a critical review of Elite Connect Real Estate on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘Wast Of Time’.
DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against Elite Connect Real Estate with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
So heres the story with Elite Connect Real Estate:They run open houses all over Brooklyn at fake prices that are believable enough to get you to show up, but they have zero intention of selling at the listing price.Huh? Yes, exactly the listing price is pure bait. Once you show up, if youre lucky an agent might be on site.Otherwise, you get to talk to a clueless “helper whos not even licensed and shouldnt even be there.Hell pretend he cant discuss details either in person or over the phone, and that its best that you “come down to the office. Okay.Shlep deep into Brooklyn to their offices. Slick looking place.To match the slick looking owner. They take you into a conference room, and the following ensues:Owner: Heres how this works, we list properties below market value, and we create [fake] bidding wars and get the price up to market value, sometimes above.Ill know how serious you are by the size of your bid. Give me your best and final bid.Me: So let me understand, you waste peoples time by attracting people who may not have the means or interest in playing your game, not to mention your own time by courting unqualified buyers who thought they were qualified based on your listing price.This is a modern-day baiting tactic that while legal, is a sheer waste of time.I now look at prices, followed by who the listing agent is anything listed by Elite Connect, and we dont bother with, knowing its a fake price.Go with ANYONE but these guys, unless you enjoy being a pawn in their unscrupulous real estate chess game.PS notice all the 5 star reviews are brand new profiles with only 1 or 2 reviews. More manipulation lol.
