Crazy Shit In Real Estate


Sometimes, being a realtor means sticking it out for clients in the most dire situations. For Peter Murray, sticking it out meant showing 3 houses even though he had a puddle of blood pooling in his shoe. In this episode, Leigh welcomes Peter Murray, an agent for Re/Max Results who has been in real estate for almost for years. Peter decided to be brave and persevere through three unconventional house showings, even if it cost him a foot injury in a house that was still very much under construction.
