A mini-celebration with one of my real estate clients at Indo Restaurant. Little moments like this are wonderful!
With the widespread use of baby cams and security cameras it was only a matter of time before stories of home owners using them to spy on prospective home buyers appeared. In an article on inman a Cincinnati/Chicago real estate agent tells how one of his sellers bugged his own home for sale so that he could listen to prospective buyers. A buyer’s real estate agent showed the house to her clients and they discussed making a full price offer while in the house. The owner/seller called his real estate agent and told him to expect a full price offer.
Later an offer was received for $20,000 below asking price. Because of the knowledge the owner/seller had gained by bugging his house, the seller held firm on his asking price. A purchase contract was signed within 12 hours at the full asking price.
Generally recording a conversation without permission is illegal. The fact that the conversation took place in the owner’s own home enabled him to justify his eavesdropping to himself.

Here are some great photos from the 100 Most Influential Real Estate Agents seminar which was held at San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California. Juliana Lee was invited as one of the TOP PRODUCER PANEL – A group of top producers that have closed $20 million to $100 million+. She shared the best lead generation ideas and lead conversion systems. And what it takes to be wildly successful in the local real estate market.
