I came across a critical review of Redfin Hawaii on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘Innocent Looks!’.
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 Redfin Hawaii with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
Ali Ban is a greedy, manipulative figure At Redfin Hawaii, either as a sellers agent or buyers agent. I have worked with her as a potential buyer with her two different roles at two occasions. And do not be fooled by her clean, innocent looks!She wants to see your bank statements already even when youre just starting to make an offer, which is way much too soon compared to the normal “two days after acceptance of offer.This way she gets to know how comfortable you are financially, so that she can aggressively “advise you to keep “bidding for the property with a higher and higher offer as if the procedure of trying to buy a home were a participation of a “blind auction.Eventually she will earn more if the sold price is big and fat! Meanwhile she arranges her teammates to chat with you on the phone again and again trying to read your mind, feelings, and how much desire you have for the property.When you show your anxiety or even desperation, she digs a deeper and deeper hole for you to dive into. Hence, you must not be misled, and better outsmart her!Once she decides that youre hard to be controlled by her plans and ambitions, she trys another approach: She offers you a “backup position (for your offer to be accepted by the sellers after the “top priority failed to achieve?) by requesting you to stop looking for other listing properties nor making any offer to any of them. How dare she! Who she thinks she is?!Overall, this team is made of people who lack the real professionalism, especially the so-called “agents. And yes, including Gill Mara and Karli Miyata, who are simply doing nothing productive or progressive and wasting your precious time and energy!However, I must also be fair enough to say that some of their office/administrative assistants are helpful and sweet in terms of scheduling a tour or showing.Otherwise, they would not deserve even a single star from me.
