Indeed, as a seller I would much prefer a broker who had the ethics to insist that we should not attempt to defraud the buyer. Wouldn't everyone?
I agree totally. However I don't fully understand the social setting in Spain
, though I know it's more convoluted than Britain. The broker did the right thing by me and I'm not going to possibly embarrass him without checking back. I've sent him an email
and if he wants the publicity, I'll post his name as soon as he confirms this.
As an aside, years ago I sold a boat through Simon Thomas Yacht Sales in Newhaven, England
. It wasn't much of a boat but Simon realised that there was one life jacket less than there should have been. I'd genuinely forgotten that I'd taken it home to have fitted a new quick release on the gas cylinder. He insisted that I drive down that day and deliver it. Another ethical broker.
