Elderly woman in San Francisco has been taking realtors for a ride! From free lunches to Louis Vuitton handbags ! Don't be fooled by her LV bag (prolly fake) and her age, she'll dangle the carrot ( show proof of funds and evidence she owns multiple buildings) to make you do things for her. She's scammed other realtors, and she'll scam you. Real estate agents, if you encounter this woman, do not run away. Instead, refer her to that agent who backstabbed you! LOL!
This real estate agent is actin' a damn fool! He been stealing his competitors' for-sale signs. Geez, is this how they do it in Connecticut?! And here I thought Connecticut was all polite uppity.
This guy in South Carolina had a history of grand theft & fraud in Florida, but he still was able get his real estate license in South Carolina. Guess what? By using his access as a realtor, he started stealing jewelry from homes that were on the market. What a creep! The awful thing is that his criminal record was out in the open, if his brokerage had just bothered to fully vet him. Tsk tsk!! We can do better folks!
Two real estate con artists rented out vacation homes in the hoity toity Hamptons, and then sublet-ed the properties as venues for the spoiled teenagers' prom parties. They made off with hundred of thousands of dollars until neighbors complained and the police busted them! Even Kim G (of Bravo TV's Real Housewives of New Jersey) gave her daughter $510 to attend one of these parties.
The owner of a real estate brokerage in Canada became suspicious when several homes one of his agents sold were later involved in drug busts! So he set up a sting with the local police & busted her. Geez, with employees like that, who needs enemies! The public already think realtors are just one step about attorneys (very low)...We don't need to be one step above crack dealers! LOL!
There ain't no housing hilarity to this! Realtors are being slain across the country. It's an epidemic! RisMedia reports: 2 real-estate agents recently were killed in vacant homes for sale, & another was robbed....all within 1 week! Yikes!
World Journal interviewed me again but this time it is about the recent mass murder in a San Francisco quiet neighborhood that has shocked the region. This article focused on the housing angle.

33 year old is a real estate expert that frequently appears o Money, realtor and HGTV shows. He says, asians are more superstitious, but lots of mainstream people don't care. some people use the opportunity to buy. Some demolish the building, or rent it out for a few years, wait till the market goes back up.
He says " I once has a building, male owner hung himself. A couple came to see, wife says she can't live here, husband says he doesn't mind and wants to buy. After long arguments, husband listened to his wife of course. But this shows some people really care, and some don't mind at all"
He explains, California law requires owner to disclose death in the building within 3 years, no matter if it's homicide or natural death. But he says "even if it's over 3 years, we try to let the seller know, the more details you disclose, the less legal battle you get into later"
He says, one year ago there's a research that shows, for psychologically impacted houses, the average price goes down 5 to 10%. But for places with large media exposure, and selling it now will be 20% below market. But SF is hard to find a place, price will come back up after several years.
He says, California law doesn't restrict selling the house for a duration after someone's death. Every death case is different, and house price may not be affected at all. But during an investigation, lawyers and police needs to enter the house, the house can't be sold, and may take up to a year or more.
look that mug...GUILTY!!
Aye carumba! This sneaky snake used religion to lure his Spanish radio listeners into mortgage schemes that totaled over $2M. As a San Francisco pastor & former real estate agent, he offered to help embattled homeowners but in reality put his name on their title or refinanced their house and cashed out! Disgusting! As Maude would say, God'll get you for that!
