If I expected information from someone within a certain time frame and didn't receive it, I would call and find out why not. I'll leave my comment at that.

did you call the agent back? That would be more appropriate than putting this on talk of the villages. Anyone on this site cannot get you the information you need.

We were pushed to buy a new home in Fenney and did so in 2018. 6 months into living there we were in the market looking for a new home and community. Our agent never told us about the website where you can browse available homes or showed us a single resale in different parts of the Villages! Consequently, we are living elsewhere. No regrets.

She sold us our new home. Beth is great.

It happens everywhere, and sadly...even more so in TV.
I would like more information on , even more so in TV, by what you mean.

My sales representative is Angie Stokes, with the Villages sales group. I have purchased 2 homes from her and several of my friends have as well. You just got the wrong person. There are multiple mixed race couples in TV.

On our lifestyle visit the TV real estate person assigned to us never called. When we gave up waiting and contacted him, he spent as little time as possible with us (less than 1 hour). We ultimately found others who were more willing to work with us.

We agree with the other comments: Sales are so easy to conclude, that some agents will make little to know effort unless they believe you are ready to purchase immediately.

Understandable from their point of view but frustrating if it is your initial trip to explore.

Please read back on OP's past posts. She has been here before and worked with a real estate person in 2013 if I understand her posts correctly. Perhaps I am missing the point.

I agree, on life style visit Greg show us around. I told him flat out that we was not interested at this time and would be 24 months or so before we consider buying. He said , I’m here to show you around if you want. So, he took afternoon and drove use around. When we got here to buy we told him want we were interested in and he show us that and didn’t push any new housing.
