I tried to purchase a home from the Petoskey office From JOHN THURMAN,TRISH HARTWICK . I submitted the bid through Trish who then recommended we use John so we have a better chance of getting the home. I submitted the offer to find the next day we had a multiple offer form to fill out because it was Johns position he had another offer. I then decided to call Freddie Mac on Wednesday 3 days later and they said that no offers on the house have been submitted. I contacted John at 11:34 Thursday and he expressed that he still has no offer in his possession but it was coming. I then called Freddie Mac the very next day. I was also told that the other offer was dated 3 days after mine, it was never submitted to Freddie Mac until 4 days later to find that John Thurman was writing another bid from someone else creating a bidding WAR. I have now been forced to bid for more that the House was listed for. I was also told that he was the realtor that was writing the other offer. Freddie Mac sent it back out to bidding and now we are 1000's over the listing price to find the realtors are behind the hole thing. I hope that no one uses these realtors and experience what we have.
