I don’t believe that is the case. I would be really annoyed if it was the case. We are all children of God. I would say it because they are very busy this time of year. Fire him/her and get another person who respects their clients

Default Beats the hell out of being hounded by a realtor.

Bet it was wrong email address.

Agree that this agent isn’t one that you should be working with and that skin color is not an issue. I’ve worked with Tony Trussler here in The Villages on multiple purchases and sales and have found him to be a great guy; never pushy for a sale but always follows up; and he is very responsive! Give him a call at 352-552-6027. Good luck with your search 😊

Could be they got the email incorrect or it’s in your spam. Suggest contact agent again for follow up. Mistakes happen.

Really racism.
But what the heck everyone is a victim now.
Why can it just not be a bad sales rep. Report the person to the sales department and request another.
Good luck

Use Nikki Perry, she has been an agent here for a long time. She is very helpful and will really take care of you. She became a good friend of ours too.

I used Ann Duke with the villages realty she would have contacted you immediately give her a call she’s wonderful. Her cell # is 352-661-8324. I don’t know about the racial thing but I only hope it’s not true.

Agreed.

Even then however, it's very unlikely the agent would ever publicly admit to... being discriminatory.

It happens everywhere, and sadly...even more so in TV.

Sorry, but I will have to respectfully disagree that there are..."many."

Particularly...on a % basis.

The current population in The Villages is 98 percent White, 1 percent Hispanic or Latino, less than 1 percent Asian, and less than 1 percent Black.

Please call Tony Trussler . He is the best Villages sales agent and very thorough. Sorry you had a bad experience. Probably a lazy agent.

I doubt that is why. I highly recommend Angie Taylor. She has taken good care of 4 family member who had dealing buying here in TV.

Call Mike Millhorn (352) 350-4906 of the Villages. He is a great agent to work with remotely or when you’re here..
