  • Beware of shady Channel partners of Wadhva (Atmosphere)

    Context - Me buying a 2 BHK flat at Wadhva Atmosphere

    A reputed group like Wadhva - that is a brand in itself feels necessary to associate with channel partners - who HIDE their identities, paying them a hefty ~Rs. 3.5 lacs commission for a 2 BHK flat is surprising in itself.

    Gullible people like me inquire by clicking on ads arrived through Google search and end up calling assuming Wadhva folks on the other side. However, you get shady -(why - i will come later) channel partners like Clickghar representatives who never reveal the identity of their company.

    You visit the Wadhva premises and when you are in discussion mode, you come to know that you have arrived through an agent. Personally, I don't mind agents - they are pretty helpful in guiding people identify properties - but what I can't understand is you come to know that an agent is around while negotiating the price.

    Finally Wadhva executives become a party to the discussions that culminate in a discount to me by the channel partner on the commission he recieves - in my case, Clickghar (Geetinder Singh) at a later stage. I was gullible enough to take that verbal arrangement as final because representatives of Wadhva are present in the discussions.
    And then....When its time to receive the payback\discount as agreed, Clickghar agent refuses to oblige point black. More importantly, Wadhva guys put their hands off despite being part of discussions. My bad - there is not much you can do when there is nothing in writing

    Important Points from above -
    1. Why would Wadhva need shady channel partners like Clickghar who only reveal their identity once you start negotiating with the sales guys of Wadhva - I don;t mind an Agent in between as long as I know he is an agent

    More importantly - moral of story for buyers who ARE LOOKING TO BUY there -
    1. Always insist you want to deal directly with Wadhva other wise you will end up paying a whopping Rs. 3.5 lacs (2 bhk flat) to a scrupulous agent when that money could have been yours.

    2. Don't be a fool like me to trust people by their words. I understand shady agents can't be trusted but whyWadhva folks....?

    Thanks

    Yes I agree to your post. I have heard of this from some folks.

    Its poor on Wadhva's part to be a part of this.

      Its a huge commission for a channel partner. Thanks for letting us know and sorry about your loss - I guess Clickghar has such reputation for us to be beware of.

        Seems to be a practice ....same happened to me with L&T Powai project ..in fact the agent (which I realized later) told me he is stuck in traffic (it was a Sunday morning) and will be late. Asked me to go to the L&T Sales office and meet any other Sales guy but tell him RamPrasad the channel partner sent you (then it struck me he was not an employee). I was there for more than an hour and he never came. Never even called me later while the employee did follow up on my interest. I feel the employee and channel partner share the money (could be a bad guess).

        So even if an marketing email looks like from the builder ..it generally never is.
