Crazy Shit In Real Estate

Summary:

Is that house you’re selling haunted? Colin Krieger, a realtor from Columbus, Mississippi, remembers a sale a few years back that made national news – and won the Nutcracker Award in his office with flying colors. Not only did ghost hunters come and verify that the house was haunted, but the buyer was certainly a ghost from the past, too! Listen in to find out who the buyer was and why, sometimes, it’s good to out-crazy crazy.
