It was 1st April, 2016 at precisely 5:00pm. I got a call from a client whom I will call Osarobo. He asked me if I had a property suitable for a school. At that moment I did not have any available for rent. So the next day, I went round in search for it. I got three options. Without wasting time, they came and I showed them round.
Unfortunately, they were not satisfied. As we were going out, I saw a colleague in front of a particular property which, I tried to reach the owner but to no avail. We all alighted from the car. I made inquiries and was told the property was for sale . This sparked the interest of Osarobo. Therefore, we entered the compound and inspected it. To cut long story short, Osarobo did not purchase that particular property because of the perceived high marked price.
In view of this, I did not rest in my laurels. I went to work again, searching for a property that suites their need. Eventually, I got one close to the road. It was a 3bedroom bungalow on a 50 x 100feet dimension. I called the Barrister in charge of the property and negotiated with him. I let him know that I would take my client inside the compound for inspection and he gave me the permission. With this, I called the client  over for inspection. We went inside. Having being satisfied, we left and I took them to other properties, but  they quickly turned others down.
Furthermore, I was in their sienna bus as they drove away. At their request, I called the Barrister in custody of the bungalow for a thorough negotiation. Later, I handed the phone to the wife of the client and she spoke with the Barrister. Initially, the marked net price of the property was 4million naira. But with her strong negotiating power, the price crashed to 3.5million. Later, I got off from  the bus.
The following day, the client went to the property and collected the Barrister’s number and scheduled a meeting with him without my notice. That same day they located the Barrister’s office. Events happened so fast. In fact, the client spoke with the owner of the property and arrangement was made to pay for it. Eventually, they made a part payment of 3million. Within one week, the balance was completed. In all of this, I was pushed aside. One month down the line, the client deliberately refused to give me my 10% commission.
