    Hello!

    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!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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. :/

    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.

    I just spoke to the assistance line and they are moving me over to a new agent.

    Thank you all for your help!

    I can tell you from personal experience that Naca won’t find you agents. All you need to do is find a new agent who can help in your case. We have a very similar situation, but I took a mortgage from another organization. I found a great agent who was able to help us. I liked his way of working; even when we seemed to be failing he cheered us up, and everything worked. As a result, we found a very nice house that would fit all our requirements and, most importantly, finances. Plus, the agent gave us a little gift. He told us about the services of https://onstage-online.com/our-services, where we were able to buy some furniture, artwork, and accessories for our new interior.
