Dodgy
Sold a house to my neighbor, neighbor gave me 10% down check. Took my information and buyers lawyers phone number to Thomas Moens the next day. 4 weeks later I stop buy. Thomas acted like he didn't even know me. Said he called buyers lawyer and left a message. Also commented 'maybe the guy didn't know what I was talking about'. I walk out the door and call the lawyer, secretary picked up and transferred me to buyers lawyer.(something you will not get with Thomas. A secretary.) Buyers lawyer said he had not received call. 2 weeks go buy, I stop in again. He was not there, left number with a lady who said she helps out but not involved with his business. Thomas calls me that afternoon and said he had called and sent an e-mail but got no replies. E-mail? How did you get that? You had not even talked to the guy. So then when I said its been 6 weeks he said I should find another lawyer. "I don't know what you want me to do" he says. Well he could have called ME. Instead he left me hanging for 6 WEEKS. And blamed it on the other guy. Thanks.
