Dear Estate Agent
Dear Estate Agent,
Please excuse this direct approach, but I am writing to introduce myself as a homeowner.
In an attempt to put an end to the flood of emails that arrive in my inbox from you, I’d like to let you know that I bought the property in question because I liked it and felt it would be a good investment. Since then, I’ve been pleased with the return on capital investment and I have no plans to sell.
Furthermore, currently living in the apartment are excellent long-term tenants – whom I found myself. If I required a real estate manager, I would call a reputable company.
But, generally, I find it more cost-effective to advertise the apartment myself and show tenants around myself, rather than having you fleece any potential tenant of two per cent for the pleasure of handing them the front door key that I’ve just handed you.
I’ve no idea how you got my contact details, although I suspect you bought a “list” from some unscrupulous company. I would be delighted, however, if you deleted me from your database and never bothered me again.
Please rest assured that, should I ever require the services of a dodgy fly-by-night real estate company of whom I’ve never heard, I will not hesitate to call you.
