Why Steal Lottery Tickets From Me Then Lie About It?

by Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley real estate agent

Today my buyer agent held a broker tour open house for me at my newest listing at 7100 Rainbow Drive, #33 in San Jose, Calif. This home is located in a a secure building within a great neighborhood with nationally recognized Cupertino Schools, including Lynbrook High.

During the open house a group of three well-known (and previously respected) real estate agents from a company that promotes itself as especially ethical stole lottery tickets.

(Seriously, we do know how many lottery tickets we bought  and how many we gave out).

My buyer agent confronted the man who grabbed the handful of them on it. He claimed, "Well, there are three of us."

"Yes," she replied, "There are three but not five of you, how many did you take?" They ignored her. She asked him again, "Show me how many are in your hand." All of them ignored her, (she said it twice), and the three of them walked out.

One of the three people is the vice-president and a founding member of this firm, which heavily promotes itself as highly ethical.

Seriously, if you were an executive officer in that situation, wouldn't you at least instruct the agent who works for you to simply show how many you have? I mean it's your company's reputation at stake.

Our usual policy is we exchange an agent's business card for a lotto or lottery ticket. If they have no business card, we have them sign in with their name, company name, phone number and email address.

There are 3 lessons here.

1) Don't let the lottery tickets (or anything else valuable) ever be fully out of reach, not just within sight-even when you're supposedly among a group of ethical peers.

2) Be aware that even experienced Silicon Valley, Calif. real estate agents who are "big names" or company officers can sadly be so ethically challenged (or financially hard up) they would willingly steal more than what is freely given-and then cover for each other. If they'll do that for a $1 lottery ticket, just imagine having a transaction with them.

3) My late mother, Silicon Valley real estate legend Judy Carr always said, "People either live up to their names...or go completely opposite." It seems the three gentlemen from this firm do possess integrity-it's just in reverse.

Why Steal Lottery Tickets From Me Then Lie About It? It revealed a lot more about you than you took from me.

Michelle, that behavior is just digusting. You learned three hard lessons, hopefully you will never have a transaction with them...sad to say there is a lot of truth to your mother's comment...
