I was working with a local realtor. I found a house and put a bid in on it . It was rejected by the bank. During that time I also double checked with my PO that the location would be approved. I already made sure that it wasn’t close to schools or parks even though I’m not under restrictions. During this time I wasn’t passing polygraph tests. So I was told that I would not be allowed to leave their jurisdiction and move to that location. I suddenly had to back out of future deals with my realtor until I got approval to leave. So to be fair I explained the situation to my realtor that I was a registered sex offender and we broke communication for some time.
Once I passed my polygraph test and received a go ahead by the powers that be I called my realtor and asked him if he was still interested in working with me to find a home. He gave me a long spiel about how I should have been forth-coming with my offense. Like I should wear my past mistakes on my chest like a scarlet letter! I explained a previous realtor experience where I received poor service and very odd treatment with chaperoned house hunting. What makes him think that I should be forth-coming with my most embarrassing moment and more importantly the biggest mistake of my entire life? Let’s hypothetically say this realtor had a previous DUI. Should he be forth-coming and tell me that before I started to look for homes with him?
In short, he is quite replaceable as a realtor. In fact, he has already been replaced.
