We have been approved for a mortgage by NACA and are currently looking for a house.
I was assigned an REA and have been slightly in contact with them… to an extent.
Basically – I lost my dream house because my REA is too busy with other members and I would very much like to be assigned one that is not nearly as busy.
I have literally done everything myself. Reached out to sellers directly for house showings, went to multiple open houses every single weekend since we were assigned our agent, have done research on the types of houses we want, uploaded all of my financial documents WEEKLY, etc.
All I needed the REA to do was submit our offer. That’s IT! I gave the agent the seller’s email and personal cell phone number so it could be done quickly and smoothly and nothing. Zip!
It would have been the easiest commission of their career but wow. Not even an email or a text with an update. Nothing.
I feel myself emailing and calling and texting al hours of the day (not literally) to only hear crickets.
I understand the process is long but I literally have done the agent’s job for them and handed them my dream home on a platter to JUST SUBMIT THE OFFER and they could not even accomplish that.
Needless to say – I am angry.
So – how can I get assigned another agent? Or better yet – could I get a list of NON Naca In-House agents? Ones with more time on their hands and that actually want to do work for their commission would be nice!
Thanks in advance!December 16, 2019 at 9:46 pm #63260
Go to any listing website. Ask for more information. Zillow and redfin are good examples. In the comments box explain you are working with naca. You will get a phone call from a either an outside agent who has been naca approved or one willing to get approved. All they have to do is attend the 90 minute webinar Tuesday afternoon and they’re approved. That’s it.December 16, 2019 at 11:22 pm #63263
I did that to No avail.
I am in Los Angeles if it matters.
Is there someone at NACA I can email for a list?December 17, 2019 at 5:57 am #63265
At your purchase workshop you will be given a list of in house agents. There is usually only 1 or 2 per area. If you don’t want to use an in house agent you will need to find an outside agent who is willing to work with naca. Naca does not keep lists of agents like that.December 17, 2019 at 10:06 am #63269
I have a NACA approved REA I would gladly reach out to her if you like. We have done everything remote and I am purchasing new construction; perhaps she can help you? Let me contact her and we need to email Tim Trumble to exchange our contact information. @ttrumble can you assist?December 17, 2019 at 10:11 am #63270Peapod0609Member
You went to Redfin and asked for an agent and haven’t heard anything? Honestly, that is odd. They usually reach out right away. The holidays may throw a wrench into some things, but if you see a house you want to tour on Redfin there should be a box with an agents name and you can contact them.
I did that back in August and our realtor reached out within a few hours.December 17, 2019 at 10:31 am #63273
Sorry let me clarify – Redfin does not have an agent approved by NACA or willing to go through the workshop. They did get back to me. Neither does Trulia or Zillow.
I did not get a list at the purchase workshop for in house agents either. I was assigned one after a lot of calling and begging pretty much.
@2BLESSED that would be awesome!!!!December 17, 2019 at 10:35 am #63274
I will wait for him to get back to us and send my contact information. In the meantime I will contact my agent today! Everything will work out.December 17, 2019 at 11:50 am #63280outrenthomeMember
As weird as it may sound, I found my NACA-certified agent on Facebook. I entered NACA realtor in the search field and there I found her page. We are in Dallas. She is actually pretty good, she would be the one to tell us to change our mortgage counselor and go for the one she had been working with for years. She would even follow up with our new Mortgage Counselor to see if we had everything we needed to get qualified.
Right now I am in the process of waiting for NACA to underwrite our application, so I am waiting for an answer, hopefully there are no conditions and then I believe I will have to go to the Purchase Workshop.December 17, 2019 at 12:02 pm #63281
Thank you @2BLESSED
@outrenthome Huh! I did not think about Facebook! I searched on LinkedIn and found one and reached out to him – still waiting to hear back (this was on Saturday).
We are ready to go – have attended all workshops needed and volunteered. All of our financial documents have been uploaded and up to date (including for this month).
I am READY to buy a house. If I could represent myself and submit everything I would not have missed out on my dream home but since I have to rely on someone else… it really sucks when they don’t care as much as you do. :/December 17, 2019 at 12:42 pm #63284
If you do not want to use the in house agent you will need to call around trying to find one that is either approved or willing to become approved. You will need to take an active role – as you already have.December 17, 2019 at 12:42 pm #63285
I just spoke to the assistance line and they are moving me over to a new agent.
Thank you all for your help!December 17, 2019 at 4:21 pm #63294

That’s why I prefer to do this stuff on my own. I had a house in Manchester, UK. I sold it on my own. I’ve tried to do it with a realtor, but it was a waste of time. I’ve tried to sell it right to buyers, but they just didn’t have money. Then I found this thepropertybuyingcompany.co.uk company and sold my house to them. They gave me a lot of money for my house in Manchester, I moved to NYC and now I have a nice and comfy flat in New York. I think that I made everything right.March 11, 2021 at 5:23 pm #74585davidblut125Participant
As I understand you. My husband and I were also looking for a house, we found it, but our realtor got sick, then went on vacation and then changed her place of residence. The state is new, but we know the laws and how the lawyers suggested that she finish the case because we don’t want to take the money back. She just left and changed her number. We tried to solve the problem for a long time, even tried to buy the house from another family. Then they started looking for a new realtor from realestateagentlist.net, and she turned out to be much more decent. She offered to file a claim to confirm the right of intent to purchase and through the old agent to confirm the almost completed transaction.
