Crazy Shit In Real Estate


“Isn’t my body tight and toned? Isn’t it?” Um, awkward! Matt Ivey, a REALTOR® in the triangle area of NC (Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham and the surrounding areas), has quite the story about some crazy shit. From poop-stained carpets to a nutty ex-stripper whose stage name was “Beaverly Woods” (that’s not a typo) – the fun never stopped in that big brick house. Listen in to learn what Matt went through, what he smelled – and what he managed to learn from the whole experience.

Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 01:00 – Introducing Matt, a REALTOR® in Raleigh, NC who services the triangle area
  • 02:06 – He enjoys working with first-time homebuyers - he likes the emotion – but he also works with distressed properties and investors
  • 04:00 – Matt’s CSIRE story
  • 04:05 – A lady called him with 110 acres and a four-story house of brick; he goes to meet her thinking it’s going to be a big sale
  • 04:20 – The lady starts talking about an ex-boyfriend, stands up, and asks Matt, “Isn’t my body tight and toned? Isn’t it?”
  • 04:45 – She was an interesting person; the house was not bad on the outside but stunk so bad on the inside
  • 05:50 – It was a 4,000 square foot home with two window units, so they did nothing for the heat – which enhanced the smell
  • 06:15 – The woman explained that her elderly mother had lived there and went crazy; she said, “I probably should’ve checked on her more often, and she had 17 dogs.”
  • 06:30 – The mother wouldn’t let the dogs outside so they just went to the bathroom inside
  • 07:05 – She had a crew of people living in the house and when Matt’s signs went up, a guy living there would break them and take them down
  • 08:40 – The guy who was breaking the signs ended up breaking his neck somehow; the lady wanted to kick him out because she wanted to get the carpets cleaned
  • 10:00 – She got involved in court proceedings and Matt got trolled by her family online; he ended up on “The Real Bad Apples of Wake County”
  • 12:10 – A woman in the group was telling people not to support the woman; she was saying her son broke his neck working for her and now she’s kicking him out
  • 12:30 – Someone also said that the woman used to be a stripper and her exotic dancer name was “Beverly Woods”
  • 13:15 – That name was later corrected to “Beaverly Woods”
  • 13:40 – Her business got terrible reviews and her responses were combative
  • 15:30 – Matt’s takeaways
  • 15:35 – He ended up having to walk away; he saw some good in her but it just wasn’t going to work out
  • 15:40 – Matt learned a lot about the eviction process during this time because the woman was trying to evict tenants
  • 16:30 – It’s important to be able to gauge when it’s time to walk away from a sale; sometimes sellers sabotage themselves

3 Key Points

  1. How you respond to negative reviews matter
  2. There’s a spark of divinity in everyone. 
  3. Sometimes it’s best to walk away from a sale.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
