The “Ticket to the Gun Show”
Agent Cody’s introduction to the real estate industry had a little more “action” than most agents experience to say the least! During a showing for his very first deal, the seller of the house gave Cody the go-ahead to do a walk through. As they entered, he calmly informed him that he’d be waiting in the garage with his guns because he was avoiding an arrest warrant.
After they closed, he barricaded himself in the house. Paranoid and clearly under the influence, he wouldn’t allow the movers to come in out of “fear that they would steal his tools.” They avoided the cops at the buyers request, and eventually the seller allowed Cody and the buyer to personally load his tools and finish the move-out process. All the while the seller was heavily armed, yet Cody somehow “kept his cool.”
“I think it’s safe to say the business only got easier from there!”
