Frustrating - Gives a rate comparison but expect to be hounded with 5-10 phone calls per day
I wanted to use this to compare the current real estate agent for our rental. When I completed the questions I ticked the box that said I did not want phone calls from real estate agents. Local Agent finder actually called me to confirm my details and I specified again that I just wanted to do my own comparison and didn't want to be receiving lots of phone calls form agents and that I would prefer to contact my top picks at my own discretion. The lady guaranteed that my phone number would be removed and not passed on. I was happy at first to be...able to see all the agents compared side by side and picked one and went ahead and contacted them BUT then I started to receive phone calls from other agents that should not have had my phone number - some of them were even somehow looking up my name in a database and sending emails about the other property I own, which I did not disclose to local agent finder so I find this to be a bit of an invasion of my pricacy. Now I am being hounded with about 5-10 calls per day from agents, sometimes multiple somes (some idiot, has rung me on the hour 4 times this morning but will not leave a voice message - when I looked the number up it is a real estate agent). Not happy that my details have been forwarded onto god knows how many different agencies when I specifically requested this not to happen. I have selected an agent from the results and am happy with who I have selected but I do not know how to stop my phone ringing ever 20 minutes from another agent (I uave no way of telling if it is a real estate agent or another important phone call so I am screening all calls). Frustrating and an invasion of privacy - if you use this service I would recommend putting a bogus phone number in so you are not being harassed by every agent within a 20km radius of your property.
