Mark Siwiec of Nothnagle Realty in Rochester is a real snake in the grass. We were interested in a house in NY and he was the realtor for the property. From day one we had nothing but problems with Mark Siwiec and his agency. He only communicated when it was beneficial to him. He was deceptive and uses unethical and probably illegal tactics to sell houses.
We were very interested in a house, and put through an offer of pretty much what the seller was asking. After submitting a very good offer toward the house, our agent was notified by Mark Siwiec that there was another buyer that was going to make an offer that night and to let us know that we needed to make our best offer. So, we upped our offer again to over the asking price for the house.
We waited for a few days to find out that our offer was “probably going to go through.”
We were happy, but I started to get an uneasy feeling about the transaction. Had we been hoodwinked into paying more based on a fictitious third party? We asked our realtor if there was any record of another interested party or another offer, we were told there is no record and it is just a matter of trust.
Well, I would not trust Mark Siwiec. Hopefully this will reach someone googling Mark Siwiec and will be warned that he is deceptive and unethical.
