Living in Wyckoff for 25 years and looking to downsize, Roseann Thompson from Weichert Realtor directed me to meet her at a townhouse community in North Haledon, located perhaps 1 mile from the Wyckoff border. I followed her directions of driving through my very familiar Wyckoff, She had listed and sold, and earned commissions, on two of my prior homes.
Never having had the opportunity to visit North Haledon, it seemed nice enough, altho not as nice as Wyckoff. We became involved in a bidding war, and altho I indicated by strong desire to purchase this property, Thompson low-balled my offer and I ultimately lost. I finally found a unit FSBO in the same community and based upon the information that I had been provided by and what I had been shown by Roseann Thompson, I purchased it for $535K, all cash, putting in an additional $65K in renovations. Roseann Thompson did not hide her anger with me over this private purchase.
The week after we moved in to our now $600K townhouse, we were in need of a hardware store. I located one via google in Haledon. I had never heard of Haledon and my daughter, her friend and I followed my GPS ONE MILE into Haledon. We could NOT believe what we were seeing, boarded up buildings, loiterers, what appeared to be homeless people on the street, garbage piled at the curb, a HUGE laundromat with flashing neon signs that seemed to be the gathering spot.
The girls ABSOLUTELY screamed for me to turn the car around, which I did. We never made it to the hardware store. I learned that Haledon is the sister city to "top of the charts for crime city" PATERSON, the bowel of Passaic County.....and looks just like it. Right next to our brand new $600K home.
ROSEANN THOMPSON, the realtor, should have her license revoked for her dishonesty, unethical and unprofessional conduct......withholding this information from a customer. The only positive comment that I am able to make, she at least has the presence of mind to have her customers travel in their own vehicles to the properties.
The pungent odor or alcohol/breath mints on her breath in the latter part of the day is extremely offensive. Lisa S.
