Sadly this is a true story that happened to me in my 20's, about 17 years ago. I was actually approached by a Broker, that sold properties in Fairhope, Alabama, at my grandmother's funeral visitation. Worst of all, he was doing his preliminary listing presentation right next to the open casket. Apparently some real estate agents will go to great lengths to get a listing. This property was a house in Montrose on Seacliff Drive, overlooking the bay and he wanted it badly and no dead grandmother was going to stand in his way.
I have the entire story on my website's forum. If you've heard of other interesting stories please share them.
