I was a first time buyer and John Rankin made the experience unbearable. I notified him more than 2 weeks in advance of my closing date and he had no complaints. I called to confirm 3 days before the closing and he tells me the bank isn't ready. I called the bank and they said they've been ready for days and they have been waiting for HIM. That was the FIRST of several LIES he told me. Over the next few days he did everything he could to dodge all phone calls. Not just mine - the bank, the seller's attorney, my realtor. He wouldn't respond to anyone. The bank was confused, the seller's attorney was angry. It was a mess and everyone was calling me asking where the hell I found this idiot. I was so embarrassed. The only reason I had a closing at all is because I showed up at his office the day of and demanded he take care of everything. He became very angry and started to carry on about having 8 closings to do that day. He asked me how I expected him to be in 3 places at once like it was my fault and then he stormed out of the room! I actually had to chase down a grown man who was throwing a hissy fit. I gave him plenty of notice and never at ANY point did he notify me that he was too busy. Instead, he actually thought that he could just ignore everyone and hope we went away. But it didn't stop there. A week after I move in, he tells me he forgot to have me sign the mortgage! I only signed the clause. WHAT?!?! After a month, I find out he never paid out any of my closing costs!! My property manager tells me as far as she's concerned, I don't own my apartment! When I call John Rankin he says "I wish I could tell you it was sent out, but it wasn't." He FORGOT! I'm terrified to find out what happens next. This has been the worst experience ever. I would NEVER recommend him, not even to my worst enemy.

UPDATE: Here's what happened next. Six months later I still don't have the title. I call to ask what the hold up was and his office told me they were waiting for the title insurance policy to come through and asked if I ever purchased title insurance. Not having any experience with home buying I told them I would have to look through my paper work. Then I realized - OH YEAH, I paid HIM over $1400 to obtain the title insurance. I called back and requested proof of the title insurance I already paid for and they said they would send it right out. Over 3 months and constant phone calls later I finally received it. I have no idea how this man still has a practice. He was incapable of doing every single thing I paid him for.
