I just had a very nasty email exchange with an employee/husband of owner of keller williams agency @Cynthia McKenna broker, 400 Townline rd. suite 145. Hauppauge NY 11788 631-675-0770.
I tried to reach my agent and he told me he can't speak with me. He directed me to the above mention owner/agent. I sent her email and her husband responded. I don't know why he responded he claims he's not an agent. He should have let the owner his wife contact me. He was very rude and condescending. Here is a exchange of emails from him.
if you want to sell your house don't go this agent.
MY EMAIL 1
I signed a contract with Mr. Exum, who is supposed to work for your company.I contacted him to give him my new phone number and he told me he can't speak to me. when i asked him why, what was wrong he told me to contact you.
So, here i am contacting you.
why have you restricted my agent from talking to me
KW RESPONSE 1
Dear Paula,John was removed from our active roster because of various reasons of which I am not permitted to discuss with you. I can say that his business practices were not in line with the culture and ethics of Keller Williams.In NY State the salesperson is a representative of the Broker of Record. The listing is the legal property of the broker and not the salesperson. Keller Williams maintains a policy to release listings for associates who leave for reasons other than for cause.
MY EMAIL 2
I want to make this perfectly clear.I don't think that KW would have hired Mr. Exum if he was as incompetent as alluded to in your email.
Since you know that i am a retired police officer then you are aware that i know all the BS this world has to offer and the behind the scenes double dealing.
I don't know what happened to KW relationship with Mr. Exum ,however he has always dealt honestly with me, and has built my confidence in him. I am so confident in his abilities that i have instructed my mortgage company to only talk with him.
I Signed my house over for a short sale to keep it from going into foreclosure. I want this house sold, so i suggest KW and Mr. Exum put your *** on hold so this contract can be completed.
When i spoke to Mr. Exum today along with telling me he can't speak with me, he also told me he has to turn over the keys to MY HOUSE. This is MY HOUSE for what ever time remains and i will decide what happens to it . I have trusted Mr. Exum with the keys to my house and the contents within. I WILL NOT GIVE THOSE KEYS TO ANYONE ELSE.
I will be in NY on the 15th. i suggest that by that time KW and Mr. Exum have worked their issues out.

Dear Paula,I suggest that you take a step back and reevaluate how you choose to communicate with someone with your contemptible attitude when the party is trying to protect your interests.It is not your position to dictate to Keller Williams with whom they work. Given you are a "retired police officer" then you should be fully aware of what can and cannot be disclosed.The keys were requested of him in order to return them to you. I suggest that before you go running off making wild demands upon those who are following the law, to the letter, and trying to protect YOUR best interests that you contact your attorney to have them help you comprehend what was being told to you in these messages.Although it is not my decision, I believe that the broker of record was trying to contact you to inform you that this listing documents are invalid and therefore a legal listing contract is not in place. Further, I believe she was going to offer to assist you in rectifying this issue but I now suspect, after your ridiculous message, that the broker of record will want nothing to do with you or your property.Again, to make this ever so clear to you, I am NOT the broker of this business. You have elected to contact me and I have informed you that the broker will contact you. Just so you understand the law, because you likely did not read the paperwork you signed, you did NOT hire John Exum, you hired the broker of record. Mr. Exum was NOT authorized to secure a listing from you without completing the requirements set forth in a contractor agreement. He acted, in attempting to secure your listing, without the consent or approval of the broker of record.Do not bother to contact me again as there is nothing I am able to do to help you. The broker of record will likely contact you on January 2nd. I wish you the best in your effort to short sale your home.Finally, and for clarity, John Exum is not authorized to act on behalf of Keller Williams or any other NYS Licensed Real Estate Brokerage.Peace,CharlieCharles McKennaMarket Center AdministratorKeller Williams Realty Homes & Estates400 Townline Road, Ste 145Hauppauge, NY 11788

IF YOUR NOT THE BROKER WHY ARE YOU CONTACTING ME?IF THERE IS NOT A DEAL IN PLACE THEN YOU/KW HAVE NO LISTING AND I AM FREE TO LIST WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

Paula,You clearly have a reading comprehension issue. It was YOU who contacted ME and NOT at my request. I informed you, IMMEDIATELY, that I would forward your LEGITIMATE contact information to the broker of record.You really should consider changing the email address because you clearly are NOT a legal eagle in this regard. I instructed you not to contact me again and you can't even follow that simple instruction. I am in NO position to help you. ONLY the broker of record is in such a position.Again, and hopefully this time you pay attention, the broker of record will contact you during normal business hours. Do not waste your time contacting me as it will NOT help you or your cause.Your continued communication with me after being instructed to cease constitutes harassment. No further messages will be accepted by this server from your email address or ISP origination as both have been flagged and reported as spam.Regards,CharlesCharles McKennaMarket Center AdministratorKeller Williams Realty Homes & Estates400 Townline Road, Ste 145Hauppauge, NY 11788On Jan 1, 2014 8:34 PM, "Legal Eagle" wrote:
