Extremely unhappy vendors

We initially invited Diana to sell our house as Katie was a former employee at Barfoot and had seen Diana as one of the top agents, we had also noticed she had several listings in the Anselmi Ridge area that all seemed to be selling.

We thought this odd as it could have become a post auction bidding situation. In the end the first offer pulled out so we looked at the other offer Diana presented, again well away from reserve or agreed range. Diana then proceeded to tell us that the market wasn't doing so well and that was a
