TOP TEN REASONS THAT REO AGENTS RULE

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

10. We know squatters on a first name basis.

9. We occasionally sell houses that the seller doesn't own.

8. We know highest and best is not drug dealer term.

7. We know they should add "none of the above" for "type of roof".

6. We don't charge extra for the green stuff in the pool.

5. We know the cure for too many low-balls is several Highballs.

4. We know if the title company is local, there must be something wrong.

3. We know what kind of mold exists by feeling which body part burns.

2. We get more price drops than Walmart.

1. We have bigger Siphonapteras (fleas) than regular agents.

I'm curious about what a siphonapteras is but I have a feeling it's better if I don't ask.

Too funny. I have number 11...

We know to use vaseline like a coroner to avoid nasty stenches. 

We carry spare clothes in a bag in our trunk.

We never show a house without a flashlight.

We laugh at the word inspection.

Buyer Beware is printed right on our cards...

James and Jon - just to clarify - fleas are one type of siphonaptera:)

Dinah - I keep an old pair of jeans and a shirt in the car. I think you are referring to Vicks Vapor Rub. I am retired law enforcement and always kept a jar in my briefcase.

Lisa - yes I wrote this.

Regarding #10, a squatter got extremely angry at me for making too much noise and waking him up.
