So i get a new listing. My client goes across the street to an open house and another guest and her starts talking. My client mentions her house will be going on the market in a few days. As my client leave, the agent gives her an ugly look. Later that afternoon, I put the sign in the yard, and by that night it was gone. Someone pried the hooks back and took my brand new sign, plus my 1800 number rider that was underneath. What a pissa

Clients do the darnest things smile My seller did the same thing a week ago right in front of the agent. I told her they would be pi$$ed off, and they were. She didn't care. Didn't lose my sign though......not yet!

Shouldn't you have told your client that it was considered stealing and that you also would be held accountable because you allowed the action to take place. Why would your client steal some other agents sign? Is this the type of person you want for a client? I would have stopped them from taking the sign. Not worth losing my license. Also ethically I would not feel right about it. Just my 2 cents.

DelCids, I think the ring was saying someone stole his sign. Not that the client stole one.

Stealing is one thing, could of been almost anyone, probably kids. What gets me is when another Realtor turns the Open House directional sign in the another direction.

I got a call from a guy a few months ago, told me he had my sign and was sorry. WHen I got to his property there were 60 realtor signs in his yard. His Kids thought it would be funny to do for his 60th b-day. He told me he had been calling people all day to return them.

A few years back, there was a huge rash of this going on in a community where my dad and I worked together.

My father actually deserves all the credit, but we virtually owned (and still do own) the market in that community. Anyway, all our flyers and signs were disappearing.

I have always been a bit of a techno-geek so I setup a solar powered wireless camera and aimed it at a property we listed.

So what did I get? Video of the agent who USED to own the market in this community taking every single flyer. He did this 4 times in a row, then after that he pulled up the sign.

Made three copies of the video. Kept one, sent one to his broker, sent the other to the association.

I think he got a reprimand, and we got an apology.

Gotta love this business.

I had 4 offers on one of my listings. We turned down 3 and the next day the sign was run over. They came right up over the curb, through the(brand new)landscaping, and off onto the next road.

Probably 1 in 10 of my signs get stolen for a variety of reasons. I work a strange market.

Theres this one guy who use to work for us until he got fired. He stole a bunch of our signs and was using them with his company panel.

On one of them, he was stupid enough to leave the Coldwell Banker dog on the top of the sign....what an idiot.

What I have noticed lately is a lot of the Open House directional signs all over the place, in bushes, trees, bus stops, there were even two at a shopping center. At first I though it was kids doing this but because the market is sooooooo slowwww it might be some realtors. I have seen open house (Re/max) signs covered with ads for gararge sales. I really think it's 50-50, both kids and realtors.

Imagine Megan...imagine. The best one I've seen so far is a FSBO sign in front of a Kroger.

Good grief.

I've managed to make sure that I keep company with people who absolutely would NOT do anything like that... but it really isn't a far far stretch for my imagination!
