Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty (888) 397-7352 Ext:1148 RS282607



Last week in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia there were several families squatting in a house that is on the market for sale. They broke in, and when the police arrived and questioned them, the squatters provided a signed lease...and the story did not end there....


However, have we in the real estate industry seen or heard stories of the ongoing scams happening? I did not realize how many complaints there were until I called my local association about this incident.


This is a warning for those in the real estate market looking to buy or rent a house....DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH ANYONE, UNLESS YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE!!!!


If anyone that you do not know is asking you to wire money, and you wire them money, my question to you is....WHY?????


Please watch the video...




There are people that will capitalize on on your fears, wants, and lack of understanding. Please educate yourself when it comes to searching for your next home.


Carpe Diem!!!! Lead the Way!!!!

 Real estate is a people business and you deserve to be treated with the utmost respect, as well as having an agent that will "Do the right thing ALL the time, EVERYTIME."

I believe in challenging the status quo by being different, being original, leading the way, and understanding that attitude reflects leadership.
