This brave realtor was minding her business at her open house when she recognized the thief her Association has warned their members about. Yikes! I would have fainted right then & there. But cool as a cucumber, she texted her hubby and seller to call 911...and they nabbed him! So nice to have a husband. For us single gals, we have to fend for ourselves! So carry pepper spray!

Realtor Mag Reports:
A 29-year-old Bucks County, Pa., man was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison for attempting to rape a real estate agent. Frank Yeager kept a diary of more than 200 names and addresses, Facebook pages, businesses, and churches of possible victims, many of which were real estate professionals, police say.

Yes it is true! New York Times reports that domestic abused women who call 911 too many times are considered a public nuisance and can be evicted by their landlords. Can they do that?!
They could do so under the town’s “nuisance property” ordinance, a law intended to protect neighborhoods from seriously disruptive households. Officials can invoke the measure and pressure landlords to act if the police have been called to a rental home three times within four months.
Sellers Beware of Fake Realtors Who'll Rob You When You Leave The House During The Showing Appointment!!
Sellers, ask for a business card and alert your listing agent when (alleged) agents call you to show your property. You never know what kinda of whack-a-doo you're letting into your home! It is important to give buyers their own space and time to bond with the house, but it is also acceptable for you to wait outside in your car or across the street at your neighbor's.

SF 'Landlords From Hell' Jailed For Terrorizing Tenants, Fleeing Country & Being Jerks! (She Was A Realtor Too!)
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!
