    Default Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures For Realtor

    With home sales down I guess one real estate agent in South Bend, IN had to resort to burglary to make a living.

    A homeowner has his home listed for sale and came home to find a truck in the driveway with several of his possessions either loaded in the truck or staged nearby. The homeowner confronted the two men taking his belongings before calling police.

    Realtor charged with stealing

    One of the men, [the Realtor], told police he was a Realtor with Remax 100 and was showing the home to the man who was with him.

    But the other man told police he wasn't shopping for a new home, but that [the Realtor] had asked him for help in clearing out the home, which [the Realtor] had said was foreclosed.

    [The Realtor], who was in fact a Realtor, also told officers he had contacted the home's listing agent and had permission to be at the house.

    But according to [police], the home's agent — employed through Coldwell Banker — said she had not talked with [the Realtor].

    Police arrested [the Realtor], [police] said, and booked him in the St. Joseph County Jail.

    On Monday, prosecutors charged [the Realtor] with one count of burglary, a class C felony punishable by up to eight years in prison.
    The Realtor's unwitting accomplice also told prosecutors that he had helped the Realtor remove items from another home.

    I expect somewhere along the line for [the Realtor] to blame all this on a home inspector.

    And yet another Realtor that cannot handle the responsibility that comes with the Supra key:

    Police arrest area Realtor in theft

    A [Gainsville, FL] Realtor was behind bars Friday after deputies found on sale at his garage sale items valued at more than $20,000 missing from a woman’s home.

    . . .

    [The accused Realtor] was not the Realtor for the homeowner who reported the items stolen, but using his lock box key could enter that home, deputies reported.

    The woman realized on Aug. 22 that she was missing a wooden statue valued at $20,000, which had been sitting on a mantle. She contacted her Realtor to ask who had shown the home and, through electronic records, learned [the accused Realtor] obtained a key to the home on Aug. 20, the day she last remembered seeing the statute on the mantle, deputies reported.

    The woman’s Realtor later learned that [the accused Realtor] was holding a garage sale and told her client to go to see if the statue was there. The woman found it along with other items missing from her home: a wooden bowl and a leather jacket.

    The expensive statue had been marked for the garage sale at $12, according to an arrest report.
