A purchase assignment in a remote mountain area. Listing agent refuses to put on a MLS lockbox (for which I pay a fee to access), a combo box, leave a key at the property or meet me to let me in. She says the seller would have a fit if she put on a box for me. Sellers are not there but all of their belongings are. I am driving an hour each way to the property and the office is 5 minutes away (further uphill) but "too busy" to meet me at the property and let me in. It's probably an extra 30 minutes for me to drive there, park, go in, wait for the desk person to find the key, drive back to the property, back up hill, repeat. The lender is as baffled as I am as to why a listing agent would refuse on her own purchase. Feedback?
