Tornadoes and damage in Oklahoma 4/19/2023

Real Estate Agent with Lindsay Greene Oklahoma Real Estate Agent 176844

Oklahoma was hit with some major storms yesterday evening. Tornadoes, Softball size hail, and homes & cars completely destroyed. Many people are needing resources they can trust such as roofers, electricians, etc. There are MANY service providers in our state, especially roofers. I want to make sure my clients and other Oklahoman's get the right professional. 

There was recently a thread posted by a not so well known roofer in Oklahoma that made false claims about Realtors taking "kick backs" for referring roofers. THIS IS A RED FLAG. It is illegal for Real Estate Agents in Oklahoma to make any profit from a referral as such. We take pride in connecting people with professional service providers for the sake of helping one another. What takes the cake about the unknown roofer making these claims is that he was actually using this FB post as a way to spark comments from local realtors disagreeing with him, and then him immediately offering his services and a kickback. 🤡 Talk about unprofessional.

If you would like a few real, trusted references, feel free to reach out.

I can't even imagine the hardship of experiencing a natural disaster like a tornado, but then to hear about the people trying to profit off illegal activities around something like that is just devastating.  I would always reach out to a trusted advisor to obtain a referral for services.

Hello Lindsay and can not believe how many tornadoes we have this year already.  Hope you are okay.

Hopefully Lindsay you have been safe from this tornado damage. Living in the Midwest for most of my life, tornadoes were a reality. So glad this is not the case here in NW AZ.
