Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Received several cold sales calls on my phones that are on the "do not call" list. They said the had multiple buyers that wanted to put offers on my property that is not for sale. These calls are in violation of federal law. They said they found my number that was on a sales list that was scrubbed against the do not call list. This was in conflict with their story that they had buyers for my property or why would they be calling from a list? I was told that they would provide the name of the company that provided the list, guess what, they did not!
Desired Settlement: Donation to a charity of my choice in my name in line with the federal fine for violation.
Good Morning Mr. *********,
Matt Battiata here - I received notification from the BBB yesterday regarding your complaint and I wanted to get in touch with you right away.
First, my very sincere apologies for my office calling you.
I cannot tell you how horrified I was to read your complaint, as I am aware of the penalties for violating the DNC law.
A fine of this amount would be financially crippling for a small company like ours.
The call to your home was on behalf of our buyer clients who are looking for homes in the Solana Beach area.
As a real estate sales organization, our job is to find buyers for our sellers, and sellers for our buyers.
I mention this simply to explain the purpose for the call, not to excuse it.
As we are new to telemarketing, one of my managers mistakenly downloaded a general list on the days your home was called - in other words a list that was not scrubbed against the DNC list.
As the owner of The Battiata Real Estate Group, I am responsible for the conduct of the company, so this error is 100% my fault.
I am emailing you in the hope that you will forgive this transgression on our part and accept my personal guarantee that neither you nor any person on the DNC list will be contacted in the future by my office.
In addition, as a further apology, I would like to send you a case of my Sal's Reserve Battiata Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, which won a Gold Medal at the Orange County State Fair Wine Competition, as well as a Silver Medal at the CA State Fair.
This wine is named after my late father, and my 7 year old son of the same name.
If this is not agreeable to you, or you have any questions regarding this whatsoever, please do not hesitate to call me on my personal cell phone at ###-###-#### or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Owner / The Battiata Real Estate Group
