I Realty Connect Reviews (2)
Review: [redacted] who supposedly worked for I Realty Connect contacted us reguarding selling our timeshare property, Mayan Palace Regency located in Mexico. He said he had a buyer. While I couldn't find information on I Realty Connect,I did find information on a [redacted] under Texas Real Estate Licence information under TREC Licensee Info License No. [redacted] Salesperson Expiration [redacted], Brokers Permanent Mailing Address [redacted]. He was working with an escrow company by the name of [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], connection [redacted] Broker, [redacted], email:[redacted]. Processing fee of $3250. paid by wire to [redacted],Acct.no.[redacted], Bank [redacted]. I have paperwork stating I would get this money back if sale defaulted. Both companies have their phones on message machine which is full. A few weeks after payment they requested more money of $6061.00 for Mexico taxes. I called my timeshare which I should have done in the beginning, and was told this was a scam and fraud. I said we wouldn't pay more money and backed out of the agreement. Both companies and persons represented are frauds.Desired Settlement: Refund of my $3250.00 and protection prevention for other people.
Review: Initial sales proposals was received from iRealtyConnect on June 24, 2013 for two properties we own ([redacted] both in Mexico. Proposals were signed, sales agreements were sent to us July 1 and returned to IRealtyConnect. The buyer funds were reportedly secured in escrow by [redacted]. On July 8 we were told we needed to send processing fees which would be reimbursed at the closing. When this was questioned it was because we were dealing with Mexican properties and they would not allow the buyer to pay these fees prior to the closing. Funds in the amount of $7415 were wired to [redacted] to hold in escrow until the closing at which time we would be reimbursed. On August 14, we were told that both companies had just become aware of Mexican requirements that special taxes be paid upfront on time share sales, in the amount of 19%. Our total tax liability was to be $16,853. Because of the misunderstanding, both companies offered to "loan" us 55% of the money which again would be reimbursed at the closing because the buyer was willing to pay it. Once again, I sent wire transfer in the amount of $7583.85 on August 16. The closing was originally scheduled for August 30 but when the Mexican tax thing came up, they told us they were trying to get the closing sooner so that we could get our money back quicker so the closing was scheduled for August 23. Upon calling on August 23, a message was taken for our contact [redacted] which was never returned. At this point, every call is going directly to voice mail at the phone number [redacted]. We have had additional conversations on Monday with the contact at IRealtyConnect, [redacted], who continues to assure us that the money is being transferred to us on August 29 or 30 but we have not seen any closing documents at all. His phone as well, is going directly to voice mail. To date we have paid almost $15,000 in wire transfers with no way to recoup any of this money.Desired Settlement: Refund of all monies paid
