A regular reader and fellow realtor passes this along:
A house seller told me this story and gave me permission to pass it on to you should you be interested….
They had a broker open house recently and an agent came up to the listing broker in the kitchen and said “These must not be very nice people, there son killed a rhinoceros!”
She had seen a picture in the master bedroom of the sellers’ son, a photographer/conservationist, kneeling next to an AT REST rhino at a sanctuary in Kenya. The rhino may have looked wounded because it had been scratching itself or was scratched by another rhino, but don’t you love the chutzpah!
Obviously she was one of those newly empowered TWITS out there who like to express their FEELINGS! Maybe Manhattan real estate queen Barbara Corcoran was right when she advised sellers to remove all the family photos!
P.S. This particular seller (of a spectacular house) plans to splash the photo with fake blood and leave it in place.
