Welcome to Ralph's Weekly Feature: Two Truths and a Lie: Guess Which One Is The Lie?

Each week, I'm going to feature one Active Rain Member, with their photo, and what they are going to do is tell you 2 Truths about them and 1 Lie.

The object of the game is to guess which of the 3 bits of trivia about them is a lie!

I will post the answer in that same blog at the end of the week on Fridays so you can all find out!

It's a great way to get to know your fellow Active Rain members and staff.

This week, we will be featuring: Rose Osman

Originally from London, Rose is a top producing agent with the John Aaroe Group and works with residential properties in the San Fernando Valley and Ventura County areas of Southern California.  She has a high level of expertise with equestrian estate properties.  Rose has a great reputation and is well respected for being a highly skilled and fair negotiator.

OK, Here goes:

When I lived in London, I worked as an assistant in the prime minister's office at 10 Downing Street .

A client I fired gave me $10,000 after another agent sold her house.


I walked away from a car crash when the car rolled over multiple times and I wasn't wearing a seatbelt.


OK, gang. Tell me which one is the lie!

Remember, for those members who guess the most amount of correct lies at the end of the month, you will be awarded 1,500 Bonus Points! If there is a tie, each member who ties will be awarded 1,000 Bonus Points!

(Also, for those of you who would like to be featured, let me know, send me your 2 Truths And a Lie without telling me which is the lie and I will put you on the list - remember! make them good ones!)

I am going with # 3 this week. This may have happened :(  but I think Rose would have had her seat belt on.

OK, here we go!  I had a blast reading through your guesses, very interesting to see how some of you rationalized your answers based on my bio and my assumed British sensibilities!

 #2 is true and refers to a client who drove me absolutely NUTS, e-mailing and calling me an average of 10 times a day.  I had her home listed while helping her find a home to move to but she was so unrealistic in her search that I finally told her very nicely that I was unable to help and suggested she find another realtor. We stayed friendly and about four months later, she called to say she realized she'd been unreasonable and wanted to compensate me for my time.  She asked her new agent (who was representing her on the sale and purchase) to pay me a referral fee of $10,000 and this was done through my broker, legally and above board.  I still can't believe this happened. 

#3 is true also.  Back in the mid-eighties, I lived in the Algarve, the coastal region of Portugal.  Returning from a late night out, my (soon to be ex) boyfriend was at the wheel and was driving too fast on a winding road when he lost control of the car.  It hit the curb, popped a tire and the car careened out of control, rolling several times and ending up in an open field.  Although neither of us were wearing seatbelts (this was before they were mandatory), we walked away with minor scrapes and bruises.  Oh, did I mention that it was a convertible?  Thank goodness for roll bars, that's all I can say.   

The lie is ... #1!  Although I'm a Londoner, I've never even visited 10 Downing Street, the official residence of the British Prime Minister.  

Thanks everyone, for playing, and thank you, Ralphie, for organizing this fun game!

OK, Gang.

That's it for the guesses this week.

Feel free to continue posting your fun comments, but any posts after this point do not count toward guessing this week's mystery.

October is an odd month, and we will actually have 5 posts for this month's contest.

Watch for the next "2 Truths and A Lie" post on Sunday!

Oh my gosh ... I had a feeling that there was more to # 2 ... thanks for explaining it in so much detail. Whew ... a legitimate referral fee ... "after another agent sold her home."  Makes perfect sense!  I love they way you put a twist on that!
