I came into your fancy little real estate business with my daughter to ask you a quick and specific real estate question. What was I thinking!? I asked you, and you gave me an arrogant scoff followed by, “if that was ever out there, I would buy it myself and flip it!” Do you know you’re useless? Do you know you’re inflating the price of real estate? I work, live and dedicate myself to this community and I just wanna buy a small, overpriced, crappy and slightly dilapidated house to raise my family in! It was more upsetting when I told you my criteria, and you responded, “I have eight people on the Mainland waiting for the same thing right now…” Can you please deport yourself back there? I get it–I’m strapped for cash compared to your Mainland clients, but how about at least trying to sell a home or two to someone who actually lives here?
