So this might not be the most outrageous thing that ever happened to me in the 33 years that I've been in the real estate business but for sure it is the most memorable thing.
There was a house on the market for sale that was rented by three young men that obviously did not want to move. So to discourage agents from showing the house they would remove all of their cloths and dance around the house start naked while it was being shown.
As soon as the word got out that this was going on agents stopped showing the house. Remember this was 30 some years ago... today this action might be a big attraction...
At any rate I get a call from a young man who wanted to buy a house on the water and he had heard about this house (not the naked guys) and was very interested in seeing it. I told him what to expect and he said he didn't care if I didn't care and assured me that he would see to it that other than having to see the naked guys all would be a smooth sale.
So I call for an appointment... no answer of course... so I go and use the LocBox to get the key and open the door... Sure enough there were the guys... Three guys... stark naked and dancing to some crazy music...
Try to ignore that scene... not easy... but we were doing just fine until one of the naked guys grabbed me requesting that I dance with him...
Next thing I know three naked guys and one fully dressed guy were in a full out tumble and I was in the street screaming at the top of my lungs for help... Shortly the police came... My customer and I got out safe... For sure I was traumatized but physically not harmed... I never found out what happened to the naked guys... but the owner did have them evicted from the property... and my customer bought and still lives in the house...
I am still in touch with the him and today when we re-live this experience we always laugh... but in real time it was scary as Hell...
And some folks say we real estate agents are over paid... Some folks just don't know anything about what they talk about...
