Agent Thomas O’Hare

Company Name:: Anita Ferri Realty

Dear Ms. Ferri:

We would like to thank you for taking the time to understand the details of our experience with Mr. Thomas O’Hare of your office who, we feel, acted in an extremely unprofessional and unethical manner toward my husband and myself. To recap, on Thursday July 9, 2009 at 6:30 pm we were informed that the owners had accepted our offer of $312,500.00 on the property listing. We contacted an inspection service, Mr. Inside Out, and made an appointment for an inspection of the property on Friday July 10, 2009 at 5:30 pm. Due to miscommunication the inspector arrived at 5:00 pm and began to inspect the exterior of the home. We arrived at the residence at 5:30 pm and upon our arrival, apologized for being late. Thomas O’Hare replied “if you are the chick with the check you can be as late as you want.” I was extremely offended by his offhanded, sexist remark and even more insulted that it was made in the presence of the inspectors, my husband, our real estate agent, and the home owners.

Once the inspector began enumerating what he had found in the front of the house, Thomas O’Hare approached me again asking “honey, who is your lawyer?” Again his casual familiarity was both unwelcomed and unappreciated. Sensing my discomfort, our agent, quickly intervened asking Mr. O’Hare to follow him over to the car for our lawyer’s contact information. At 7:00 pm we finished the inspection and were told the contracts would go out on Monday July 13, 2009.

My husband and I contacted our lawyer as well as our mortgage broker to get everything we needed in place. To our disbelief Thomas O’Hare also contacted our mortgage broker inquiring if our mortgage was “real” and informed him that we would need to come up with more money to put down. At that point, our mortgage broker contacted our realtors to inform them of the inappropriateness and unethical behavior of Mr. O’Hare. On Wednesday July 15, 2009 our realtors advised us of the punchlist items submitted by the inspector. We were then informed that the contracts would be sent to our lawyer on Friday July 17, 2009.

On Saturday July 18, 2009 at 4:10 pm while we were out of town our realtor called to inform us that there were two offers submitted on the Property. The contracts were never sent to our lawyer and Thomas O’Hare continued to show the house without entering the accepted offer. In an effort to review the procedures that were undertaken with regard to this transaction, a meeting was scheduled for Monday July 20, 2009 at 5:30 pm. My husband and I were not present but were represented by our realtors. Our realtors were asked if we would increase our bid, which had already been accepted, and were further questioned as to whether or not we had any children. While we are aware that this is not entirely illegal it is unethical and as such we are considering further action. We intend to explore all of our options in an effort to prevent Mr. O’Hare from causing other unsuspecting home buyers similar distress and disrespect. We feel very strongly that the unprofessionalism and unethical behavior of Mr. O’Hare is a serious situation that must be addressed.
