We listed our home with Linda Lelak last year and it was a mistake. Linda came highly, highly recommended from a personal acquaintance. My experience with Linda could not have been more opposite than I expected. She was extremely prompt in returning phone calls and stopping by to speak with us UNTIL THE DAY WE LISTED OUR HOME WITH HER. On that day, a different Linda showed up. She was rude and seemed put out with us. Our home was in disarray from some repairs that were being done and she was clearly annoyed by this. I'll never forget her saying to me "I don't want to freak you out or anything but I need to do a quick walk through, you can just do whatever," indicating that I wasn't invited to walk through my home with her. After that day we almost never saw or heard from her again. When the listing went into the MLS the were significant errors, such as listing the wrong number of bathrooms. When we asked for this to be corrected, she was defensive and slow to respond. Our was shown very little and when we asked for feedback from the buyers who DID look at our house, Linda either didn't return our calls or REPEATEDLY reminded us that our home didn't have a basement. We became desperate and asked Linda to publish a $5000 bonus to the selling agent. She refused to do this. We asked her to place an ad in the paper or realtor magazines. She refused to do this. We never did sell our home and when we try again we certainly will not choose Linda or Harry Norman.
