Has anyone any experience of a company that claim to sell Bulgarian property, Extra Sales? They are based in Dublin, (Fitzwilliam square) and take marketing fees upfront. I had my own bad experience. I foolishly gave them a large marketing fee in October 2009 to sell a building project I have in Bulgaria and promises were made. A buyer would be found after 3 months, deal closed in 6 months. A very long story short after 2.5 yrs NOT one viewer of the project. Early 2010 they started to pull away from me and it was always me making the calls. They always said they had someone interested and they would be coming soon. No one ever came. I became suspicious and kept pressing them, in the end my patience ended, and asked for the money back, nothing.
I brought them to the small claims court via the on-line route. They ignored the whole process including the decree from the court. I brought the decree to the sheriffs office and he went and recovered the money from them after the threat to remove assets was made.
Big lesson, never give fees upfront, they claim to be very successful so let them collect their commission upon sale.
I live in Bulgaria and anyone selling beware the Russian market thing is totally over-hyped. They do buy but are very choosy and want substantial discounts on finished properties with no issues.
I'm interested to hear from anyone who has had experience with Extra Sales,
