Okay . . . I have to say as real estate careers go, either I have lived a very sheltered life or I just take 'crazy' as part of the deal.
Or perhaps I'm the craziest one around me . . . this is a distinct possibility.
So it took a moment to rack my brain for something CRAY.
This chick comes into my office back in the day. . . tells me she has her eye on a parcel of land in a nearby subdivision. Can I find a way for her to buy it? Sure.
I get lucky. Send off letter to the property owner who literally cries with joy. They need this money for a medical procedure. It is manna from heaven.
We get it under contract.
Then the buyer begins to drag her feet . . . she starts making excuses, the money she assured us she has seems now to be in question (despite funds letter).
She says her TWIN SISTER is opposed to the purchase, and they've been fighting tooth and nail over it.
Hmmm. I did not know she was a decision maker.
Come to find out . . . not only is 'Judy' NOT a decision maker . . .
'Judy' DOES NOT EXIST.
Yeah. A little detective work, and 'Julie' does not have a twin or any siblings.
So, I asked 'Julie' to please bring 'Judy' into the office, I would love to meet her and perhaps I can help mediate so we can move forward on this sale.
And that was the last I ever heard about it . . . 'Julie' funded and closed the deal soon after.
Needless to say, I was not interested in further business with this gal. And I was delighted not to have shattered the sellers' dreams.
