A San Diego woman who was outbid on her dream home faces felony charges for pulling a series of insane "pranks" against the home's new owner, including inciting rape, listing the victim's home for sale, and advertising high school parties at the house.
According to a felony complaint obtained by NBC 7, Kathy Rowe became enraged after the home she wanted was sold to another family. So Rowe did what any sensible person would do: She created an online ad in the new owner's name, inviting random men to break into the house—the address for which was provided in the ad—to rape her. Two men responded to the ad, and one actually showed up at the house.

Is this what taking a listing means in Jersey?! These two realtors were caught on camera red-handed with their pants down (literally!) by their seller's security cameras. They were doing the nasty several times over weeks! Sellers are suing them for deliberately steering away buyers so they could have a sex playground (ummm, get a motel like a normal person!) and for intentionally over pricing the $650k house so they could continue their secret trysts! Can you believe realtor Lindsay is a former Passaic County Board of Realtors president?! Definitely on Santa's naughty list! Tsk Tsk!
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. On Nov. 25 last year, police say that Yeager tried to lure a Pulte real estate rep into a secluded model home with plans to rape her.
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.
