Thank you, aleCcowaN, for another rule. I’m weak in grammar, so rules are what I need at this point. You told me which of my options you preferred and why. That really helped.

You indicated "No me lo hubieran dado por el precio que les hubiera/se ofrecido" as a good way to say the above “………because you can use imperfect subjunctive instead of conditional when everything happened in the past.” I have never heard that rule so that really answered my question.

Poli also gave me a useful rule that helped. I will also keep his in mind when dealing with the subjunctive. He indicated: “…….if a conjugated verb follows the conditional in the same sentence, the conjugated verb should be in the past subjunctive.”

Thank you to both of you!
