Realtors Behaving Badly: Jersey Shore Edition
Ocean City curb appeal scandal goes national.
An anonymous person with access to a pen and a piece of paper left a badly-behaved-realtor note for Bill and Barbara Doughten, who live in Ocean City, NJ. It reads:
“I’m trying to sell million dollar homes in the neighborhood. I drive my clients around and they see your car parked sideways on the front lawn! You have a driveway – use it!”
Bill told NBC10 that he parks his car that way because it’s closer to the house, and he has a bad leg and shakes.
The story has gone national after being posted on Facebook, whose new robot overlords apparently saw it as newsworthy.
NBC10 talked to Jeff Quintin, a real estate agent with Berkshire-Hathaway Fox & Roach Real Estate, who said, “I think the realtor who wrote that is probably regretting that he did.” I think the realtor who wrote that is probably just as likely to be a woman, Jeff. We are out here, you know, and we can behave just as badly as you guys do.
For her part, Barbara is resolute — and skeptical: “I’m not moving the car. I don’t know of any million dollar homes in this neighborhood.”
She’s generally right — most asking prices in that neighborhood range from around $400K to $750K — but there are a couple properties for more than a million. And no, they do not have the same listing agent or even brokerage. But that would be fun, right?
