12 446 Q And so it was your goal at that meeting to ensure the
13 property — the Garnier’s property was sold at the
14 least amount?
15 A No.
4 449 Q So they weren’t in a hurry to sell the property.
5 That’s what you can assume; correct?
6 A Well, I suppose you could assume.
7 450 Q They never told you that they needed to sell the
9 A No.

7 Q And appealing an assessment is not something
8 generally a vendor does if they’re trying to sell
9 their property, correct?
10 A Well, I think in most instances when vendors are
11 appealing their taxes, you know, they’re
12 probably — by the law of percentages, the
13 majority of them are not in the immediate process
14 of selling their — their property.
17 Q Right. And assessment is something that is a
18 factor when putting your house on the market? The
19 assessment value is a factor?
20 A Not as far as setting price is concerned. A
21 realtor — A seasoned realtor will pay very very
22 little attention to the assessed value.

7 Q You knew at that point the lower you could get the
8 Garniers to put their property on the market for,
9 the better chance Ms. Hundley would buy the
10 property, right? It’s common sense.
11 A Well, the way you’re phrasing it, that’s
12 incorrect. The way you’re phrasing it is that I
13 would conspire to have the property listed at a
14 lower price with Mr. and Mrs. Garnier, and that’s
15 not correct at all.
37 Q And so — And you don’t think that a person with
38 your experience as a real estate agent offering to
39 assist with the appeal, there’s a suggestion that
40 it’s too high?
41 A Well, it was quite obviously too high. It was an
42 unfair assessment.
