Samsung Note 3 SM-900 Purchased in India

I bought Note 3 in India, which the sales people at Samsung stated that phone will work in US on Verizon network.  However, coming here I found out that is not the case!.

I called Verizon upon my arrival and was told that I can take the phone to retail store close by and have them flash the phone.  However, that's the case either!!

I go to my local Verizon store and they tell me that it's not possible.  So now, I am confused.  I understand that I may have lost my $700 I payed for the phone, but I would like to know for sure if this phone is able to be flashed to work on Verizon network or not.  At least this way I know what needs to be done.

No.  You will not be able to use a device purchased in India (presumably for an Indian service provider) on Verizon in the US.

You will need a Verizon device to use on Verizon.
