We Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Numero Dos No-No

hazmatAs very active Philadelphia Realtors we at The Somers Team at Remax Access experience a lot of interesting and often hilarious things in our day to day activities. We find ourselves saying, "We Just Can't Make This Stuff Up!"

A client called me up last week looking for a solution to a problem. I was honestly speechless when she explained that someone did a "number two" in the loo and never flushed! Ewwww!!! And it took nothing short of a Hazmat suite type of cleaning to de-funkify the bathroom.

What have we come to? Do Realtors really need to hang up notes in bathrooms of their listings that say... Please, I beg you... Flush!

We Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Going the Extra Mile

As very active Philadelphia Realtors we at The Somers Team at Remax Access experience a lot of interesting and often hilarious things in our day to day activities. We find ourselves saying, "We Just Can't Make This Stuff Up!"

This past week for a Northern Liberties new construction property where we represented the seller, the buyer agent texted me saying he forgot to get the water meter reading.  No big deal I said,  I will get it.   When I went to the basement looking for the water meter, I noticed the panel on the wall and then realized that I would not be able to access it unless I crawled through the hole.

Thank goodness for doing yoga as I maneuvered my way through with a suit on.   I wondered if the buyer agent conveniently forgot : )

Here's Johnny!  Now where is the water meter?

We Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up !

 

And by going that extra mile..... SUCCESS!

Us: "What? Really? Someone actually stole the lock box?"
Client: "Kind of."
Us- "What do yo mean... kind of?"
Client:  "Someone stole the railing that the lock box was attached to."
Us: Speechless.

There's never a boring day when you are a realtor! Until next time...

We Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up: ‘Cause I’m the Taxman

As very active Philadelphia Realtors we at The Somers Team at Remax Access experience a lot of interesting and often hilarious things in our day to day activities. We find ourselves saying, "We Just Can't Make This Stuff Up!"

This time one of our peers took those words right out of our mouths in a Facebook discussion regarding unpaid Real Estate Taxes and yet another gutsy indiscretion by city Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown!

Here is the latest headline.

wejustcantmakethisstuffup

Property owned by Philly councilwoman's husband is more than $4,200 behind in taxes

www.philly.com

A property owned by the husband of Philadelphia City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown is more than $4,200 behind in taxes, creating more negative publicity for an elected official already facing criticism over violations of city campaign-finance laws.

Christopher Somers Shocker... and I was just at City Hall yesterday listening to testimony regarding tax delinquency. And Blondell of course seemed to support people behind on their tax bills.... her name is on the rental license. Thoughts?

 

And so it is true... we just can't make this stuff up. If you are Philadelphia voter, please look into the candidate's history before pushing that lever. We need people in government positions to lead with honesty and integrity. Please read John Featherman's article on Philly.com.
