Real Estate may be many things, but boring isn't one of them.
One sunny Saturday, I was happily showing homes in Chandler to a couple with 2 small children and had made appointments to show several homes.
After ringing the bell at one home, no one appeared to be home so I used the key and we all entered. But what to my wondering eyes did appear...but a middle aged and not so slender woman standing there stark naked which resulted in what I'm convinced to this day was an out of body experience for me.
Each of us stood there, paralyzed with perfect "deer in the headlights" looks on all of our faces. I quickly (though it felt like slow motion) turned and threw my arms around "my family" and corralled them out of the house. I'm not sure what the woman did at that point. As we stood outside the front door catching our breath, I asked them if they had seen enough of the house to want to go back in (while silently pleading "please say no, please say no"). They hesitated for a moment and said "what house?"
Note to sellers...Please check your answering machine when your home is on the market and never, no not EVER, walk through your home naked.
