Unfortunately this is part of the world we live in...just try to treat people right, and most will do the same.

I always respond as soon as possible. Have had no shows but that is the nature of the business. Even on low-ball offers, I respond in a nice way. Never take things personal!

We have gotten in touch with sellers, make a meet date, and on the way to purchase and pick up, they come up with a family emergency or something. I always thought who has first choice and not change my mind. Unbelievable. And I’m talking driving from phoenix to patchy junction lengths

I totally agree like my grandma used to say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar 😊
I was very aggravated this morning because people want the item I respond quickly & then no common courtesy on responding back to me

I messeaged a seller a few days in a row never to get a response.

I'm wondering if that was maybe my issue today.... I was so disappointed, i contacted a seller and tried to meet up with them on two occasions unsuccessfully because of messaging problems maybe? I only heard back from the seller an hour or more later each time...

Hi @Tommy_91 ,,,,welcome to the forum,,,,,,,,im curious  what exactly makes you think it was a messaging problem?,,what was happening,,,,,did your messages show up in the messaging window?,,,,,,,,,sometimes people sound like they want to buy something , then just dont respond back,,,,,sometimes its a long time before they respond back

Level 9

and some times sellers never respond back,,,,i look at the posts to see how long they have been up
