Hi, this is Cari McGee with Keller Williams Real Estate. Welcome to this week’s episode of “Ask the Realtor.” Every week, I answer questions from buyers and sellers and pretty much everyone in between regarding real estate.

So this week’s question is, “I just read about a real estate agent who found dead bodies in a house she was showing to clients. What’s your craziest real estate story?”

Well, I had a client who was thinking of purchasing a duplex and he was going to live in one side, rent out the other side so it was gonna be an investment property for him. When you go to look at duplexes, sometimes you can’t get in at all until you actually have made your offer but sometimes you can go ahead and get in if the listing agent is accompanying you and then also as long as you give 24 hours’ notice to the renters.

So that’s what we did. We were looking at a bunch of duplexes that day with the listing agent accompanying us and he had given notice to everybody so that they knew we were on our way. So it’s the listing agent, myself, and my buyer and we’re all in one particular duplex and we go into one of the bedrooms and there is a couple in the bed, in the bedroom, in the middle of the day. And they knew we were gonna be there and it was just kind of really, really weird and awkward and they weren’t doing anything except for…I don’t even know what they were doing. They said, “Hey” when we came in and then they said, “Goodbye” when we left and so that was my weirdest real estate story.

If you have any questions for me regarding real estate, by all means, go ahead and reach out via any one of the methods that are on the screen to follow this one. Thanks so much, have a good day! Bye.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
