Did you hear about the Coldwell Banker Burnet agent, Steven Skar, who is in the middle of a lawsuit along with his former broker because some sellers in Minnesota are suing him for having some indiscretions in their house?? This story is hilarious... I'm sure it's sad for the sellers, but when you read all the details, it's pretty darn funny to think an agent would be so stupid!
The premise is that this agent has the house listed and the sellers leave the country for a few months. While the sellers are gone, the neighbors emailed the sellers some concerns about lights being on and their agent being there at odd times.
Long story short, the sellers come home to a house that is completely stained and soiled. I'm sorry, but what kind of stuff could be going on where they have soiled that many things in that many rooms, and we're not talking about the agent throwing a "party" in the house??
Coldwell Banker Burnet actually spent over $7000 to clean the home and replace things that were ruined, but that's not good enough for the home owners, and I don't blame them. They are grossed out and can't even live in the house. They don't like the idea of certain activities going on in their "marital bed".
What was this agent thinking? Is he that sloppy in his own home? From the details, it just sounds completely and utterly gross. How do you get stains on a lamp? ICK!
The agent had his license stripped by the state so he's no longer allowed to practice real estate. I'm not sure exactly what other punishment they can dish out to him, but it makes you wonder if you know of anyone capable of doing something like this.
