When we started thinking about buying a home a few months ago, I started talking to people in my office about our journey.
At first we were just looking online and just seeing what our options were. Well one of the lady’s husband is a realtor and she connected us with him
We only looked at a couple places with him but we found that we really just didnt mesh with him. I felt as though he was almost trying to convince us to buy something we werent interested in.
Well we just kind of stopped communicating with him a few months ago. He didnt call us and we didnt call him. We eventually decided to start looking into another area about an hour from where he works. We started working with a realtor in that area and she is amazing! We even signed a BRA with her after making an offer (that ended up falling through).
Well I didn’t tell any of this to the lady at work. Yesterday she said “Oh my husband is going to call you soon!”…. Now her husband is calling me saying he has some properties he would like to show me! I didn’t tell her we decided to go with someone else!!!
What do I do? I don’t want to make things awkward between her and I!

Just be honest. Don’t hide it, because that makes it more uncomfortable for you both!
Call the husband and tell him thank you for his time, but you guys are with another real estate company.
When you see the wife – tell her you talked to her husband and wanted her to know that you really appreciate her desire to help, but you decided to go with another company (put it on the company, not on the realtor).
She’ll likely be disappointed but if she can’t get over it – that’s ridiculous.
My BFF is a realtor and appreciates straight forward info (even if it’s not what he wants to hear!)

I would just bring them a holiday gift and a very brief card saying thank you so much but you ended up finding a place on your own.

I know I should have done that when she first mentioned it but I was caught off guard! I thought that he just figured he couldnt help us since it has been forever since he contacted us!
I just dont want her to get upset with me!

@tranquility: I agree with Miss Longcoat. Send him and thank you card and keep it moving. You don’t have to share your personal business.
