    THANK YOU  > >   As a Christian following the Lord    It would be my Honor to be of Service for You !






           Dale Jelinek, is a farm boy who grow up in Northeast Nebraska and then attended the University of Nebraska for a college degree in Production Agriculture with it's related field Agricultural Business Management. From my college education degree was to utilize together with the agricultural background towards the Family Business. This lead me to gain much on hands work experience from being involved directly in the Agriculture Management Leadership to personally train for a Future Career in Real Estate !


             Shortly after my college day's were over  >  >  I realized it was my turn to be in charge "The Captain of the Ship for our Family Business".  Being a self-employed ambitious young man, I learned much in the past by walking in my father's foot steps from his mistakes and examples to manage the day to day operation. I kept thanking the Lord for His Blessings and Spiritual Guidance during this period of my life for No Bad Natural Occurrences and the Yearly Weather Conditions to Succeed. Then in 1980, I decided to return back to Lincoln, Nebraska pursuing a Real Estate Career and a different life style with our Family Investments.  So I reached out in My Personal Goals  to be the very Best Professional Businessman with that High Respect and Honor for whom you are around !   


            Unfortunately:  some people today do not think this same way !  They have a mind set pattern not to improve in Verbal Communication Skills or Build their own Personal Character. For them, it is the same old rude and verbal mistreatment to others that keep appearing to find themselves caught up in a self centered world. Yes, lost in their confusion of a higher power struggle from a bad decision to blame someone else for their own mistakes.  This attitude can cause a Risky Business Decision !


            Risky Business Positioning: can cause anyone to stumble and then be caught up in a situation lacking Communication and Listening Skills. This Story is an Example as You Read Onward:  > > Two Young Buyers started House Hunting:  > >  They were up against something to be not prepared for "The Two Greedy Sellers".  Their Perfect Dream Home we learn purchased by the Young Buyer's was caught up in their own whirl spin of a Buyers own Emotional Weakness. The Buyer's Agent for the two Young Buyers was told "To hurry quickly and write the Offer to Purchase Agreement immediate after the Sunday Open House". They were hoping that the Buyers Agent would give them  emotional guidance and support.   


           The Buyer Agent Roll:  from request of the Two Young Buyers was to "Do as We Say in Represent Us" !  This was a  total different manner of Client Relationship than a Normal Buyers Agent Relationship in a Real Estate Transaction ! The Buyer Emotions was misleading them on a path and the Agent in a roll to perform writing this "PURCHASE AGREEMENT FOR THE CAPE COD HOME".  The Buyers Agent did as was told wrote and present the Offer to Purchase Agreement to the Seller and the Listing Agent. These Buyers was not aware what had just happen so quickly as they requested, until at a latter time !  For all written paper work was completed now with the Buyer and Seller signatures attached and even the "Notary of Public Notarization" was completed. The legal protection was placed on a Legally Binding Contract Agreement set in path with even the SOLD BAG PLACED ON THE PROPERTY LISTING SIGN to be for protection against any further New Buyer's Offer's !


           Finally Their First Home Purchase: with a Sale Contract Agreement was in place and finalized that made them feel very Happy and Excited ! Yet, they never received any mental knowledge of this Home Purchase Transaction and entered into a one sided view point caught up against their own emotional weakness for very poor communication and listening skills. They had little Personal Logic and small amount of Mental Strengthen for a Real Estate Purchase Transaction to proceed toward the Sellers Property. During writing the Offer to Purchase, it was clear to see the Buyers mind set was to be a "Cash Offer ~ AS IS CONDITION" on the Purchase Contract Agreement.



    [ The property description is "A Beautiful Older Brick Cape Cod Home" with two bedrooms, all oak floors, total finished basement and 1.5 stall garage. English Charm is to be presented in the Cape Cod Home by much refinished woodwork and older antique furniture giving that 1800's year look in character and style !  A Full Corner Brick Fireplace is in the Living Room area to warm up by during the cold winter nights. The outside has much beauty in  landscaping and outside lighting for a great curb appeal that gives this Brick Cape Cod Home a Rustic Warm Feeling.  HURRY IT IS NICE ! ]

        It is a known Fact and Vitally important that a interested Buyer, should Mental be Prepared in all facts and details before writing the Offer to Purchase Agreement on the Property they have chosen.  If possible to study the Seller Description of Property Disclosure before entering "A Legal Binding Contract Agreement" with any Seller and/or with their Agent. 

        Relying on the "Buyers Agent as a Leadership Person" is not wrong as the Buyer Agent could have some important limited knowledge to share. The Buyer did instruct the Buyers Agent  to quickly write the Offer to Purchase Agreement accordance to their own Terms and Style  after the Sunday Real Estate Open House. This caused a complex Real Estate situation that turned the wrong direction as the Buyer was thinking a simple procedure of their Cash Money ! Their Hope and Goal was to see if the Seller would take the Suggested Full Price Cash Offer to  Purchase Agreement on  the Seller's Home !  

        Next was the Bank Financial Obligation for a Cash Sale.

        The Banker Denied the Buyer: The Cash Offer as figured by the Buyer was to be automatic cash from the Family Estate Trust as it was denied. This could not happen the Buyer said, it was not possible at this period of time !  For until the court proceeding was complete on the Family Estate Trust the Seller will have to wait for the Closing, said the Buyer. When is the Cash Available > Answer in a Year !  So the Banker did suggest to change the Offer to Purchase Contract Agreement with a Government FHA Loan instead of Cash !  After talking to the Buyer on various reasons it was convincing to the Buyer for their Financial Obligations to the Seller and a Home Inspection Protection for them with the Government Loan Approval. The Buyer Decision was made without acknowledgement to the Seller !  First, was the results of the Government Loan Appraisal it was Low   > > The Seller Response was to Say !   >No Way !  < <   Their mind was set for that "SOLD PRICE IN  CASH  FROM THE BUYERS AGREEMENT"  as Buyer gave their Signatures for Proof !  > >  This Was the Seller Argument.  The Seller said, "The Highest Price Offer is the Best Purchase Price to Sell our Cape Cod Home" and it came from those Two Young Buyers. Their responsibility and obligation is to us Honoring the Sold Price amount "For Cash and As Is Condition" on the Original Signed Contract Agreement !

        Actually the Property: required Government Housing Inspection Report to the underwriter before the FHA Loan Department. They found hidden repairs and replacements that had to be complete and finished before any closing. The Repairs and Replacement estimated cost  $9,875.00  was in a Price Adjustment. A Low Property Appraisal was found to be more additional adjustment of $11,500.00 was to be taken off the Original Sale Price accordance to FHA Government Guidelines and Policy Regulations.

         >  All Total Adjustments on the Original Contract was a Minus < 


        "NOT ALL APPEALING AND UNFAIR SAID"  The Seller to the Buyer as you have changed Our Cash Sale Contract on Our Cape Cod Home for a FHA Government Loan ! BOTH PARTIES BECAME VERY UPSET WITH EACH OTHER OVER VARIOUS REASON AND FACTS FLEW ABOUT IN THIS PENDING CONTRACT.  

        The Contract change order from a Cash Sale to a FHA Loan Sale did really change the whole contents and terms of this Original Contract ! Seller Statement was Right !  Now we are to expect additional Bank Charges, Inspection Charges, Material Repair Cost, Labor Repair Charge and the underwriters fee charges under the FHA Terms for a FHA Loan Approval.  WE DID NOT APPROVE OF THIS FHA LOAN FOR THE BUYER OR A CONTRACT CHANGE   >  >  SAID THE SELLER !



        Therefore, now the two Agents and their Brokerage Real Estate Companies that represented the Seller and Buyer was confronted and involved in this legal action determining the Final Court Settlement on the Property !  Yes, all Parties involved became Liable for their own actions on the Original Signed Contract as written by the Buyer Agent. The Buyers instructions was to present a Cash Offer ~ AS IS CONDITION to Purchase the Seller Cape Cod Home through their Sellers Agent Friend in representing them !  Yes, the Buyer did not request a FHA Government Loan during  the Original Offer to Purchase Agreement until latter. The Seller was to think that this transaction was a Full Price Cash Purchase Offer with written words to say, As Is Condition ! The Legal issues developed and procedure around both sides of this Contract as it took a direction for a battle of cost in a Legal Court Settlement with many Fees, Court Cost and the Case Settlement Charges to each Party . 

        "Sad, as It may SeamsPersonal Mistakes and Pride are very costly and even at the expense of a "Seller's Own Greed". The "Buyer's Emotions" was a very costly Error and the "Two Agents" unethical practices reveled themselves a costly lesson of fees and their License revoked for a 1 year period. 

        This Real Estate Court Case Settlement ended up with a Null and Void Original Contract of a No Sold Property for the Seller and the Voided Listing Agreement ! 


        >  Total Cost for all Parties involved in Settlement was $64,588.00  <



        If an experience Agent was present with people skills of knowledge in Real Estate experience then possible the Hope of the Young Buyers Emotions could have been protected. The Buyer would Not Listening to their own Fears and the Scared Belief Conditions to Lose Out in Purchasing this Brick Cape Cod Home. Their emotions was high to lead them to give False Financial Information and False Words to the Seller to protect the purchase of the Brick Cape Cod Home. THE BUYER'S ARE REALLY WHOM LOST OUT ENTIRELY IN THIS TRANSACTION  EVERY WAY !  Again if an experienced Agent would have guided them down a secure path from knowledge and past seen water damages this would have been a positive security for the Buyer.  Water Damage can bring about other problems relating to many structural damage. Many times water damage is hidden by the Sellers from appearance and unseen by updating of the property ~  As Was In This Case.  

        We look back on a over priced Older Brick Cape Cod Home called the "Seller's Pride of their Ownership". They knew of the water damage and structural problems present, so they covered the damage with updating and did Not Disclose. The Appraiser seen this damage to consider the water and structural damage as a expense cost to the Seller Cape Cod Home of Repairs > > $9875.00. The Bank Appraisal was at a Lower Price to adjust on the Original Contract Sold Price of  > > $11,500.00

        The Seller Pride and Proud Ownership of Their Brick Cape Cod Home was bound in the present market condition according to themselves. Under the FHA Loan Appraiser and the Bank Inspections Report for their professional opinion was to be a minus $21,375.00 below the Two Young Buyers Original Contract Offer !        


        Therefore, what about the Seller on the other hand with their Agent Friend was in terrible trouble caught up all these Appraisal Facts. The Agent Friend being a New Licensed Agent was not helpful in know- ledge. By withholding simple information and lacking experience did not protect the Seller against a FHA Lower Price Appraisal. The Listing Agent as a Friend was not sure and ask no questions to the Sellers of any water damage problems now, present or past to the Property in a Property Disclosure.  Water and Structural Damage to a Seller Property can hurt a Sale Automatically as the Agent did not disclose nor want to hurt the Seller Friend Feeling  asking of questions to their Nice Cape Cod Home if they need Repairs Done in the Past or Need to Do !

        THE SELLER HAD "PERSONAL PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP ISSUE ON THEIR OWN PRESENT HOME".  Friendship is Important, if used in a positive supportive attitude with action instead of just Hoping for the Best !  Waiting until the Home Sale Pass the Buyers Bank for a Loan Approval is Not Good Personal and/or Customer Service to the Seller for their Happiness and Future ! AGENT FRIEND DID SAY> > "FINALLY WE CAN NOW ADVANCE FORWARD ON THE CLOSING DATE OF THE CONTRACT ON YOUR HOME SALE".  AGENT SAID, THIS STATEMENT WITH OUT KNOWING THE TRUTH TO ADD FURTHER  ~ ~ "ALL IS FINE,  I TOLD YOU IT WOULD BE OK" ! 


        MORE ANSWERS:  > >  Again People skills were very important for the Seller and Buyer stand point and to have Agents to fully understand to share the results of the Bank Loan Process. What happens if a change would come as the IN TERMS OR TYPE OF LOAN CHANGE  that did cause trouble for the Seller that does require extra paper work documents. The Original Contract always stands in Legal Purpose unless a change order as addendum is present by both parties knowledge for initial's for legal change and agreement complete. The Seller and Buyer has to be in perfect agreement and each other to Grant Permission to change this Original Contract. Preferably the Seller is notified at time of change not latter to place liability on the Seller shoulders to be off the market in waiting on a Buyer.  A Listing Agent should be a Fearfulness Person in attitude to approach the Seller Friend with strong Agent Leadership of a large money transaction like Real Estate Sale. Good Communication and Good Listening Skills  always follows a good Agent in timing to understand the Real Estate process for solid advise. 

        Professional Guidance is an Art and Skill Together !
