<quoted text>The only ones that call it junktown are people like you that don't research the property they are buying to see if it's over priced or can I afford it before buying it. I meet military people weekly that are retiring and staying here. You're also wrong about most contractors not being from this area. Most of the builders that build homes in this area are from here. Less than half of them come from outside this area and yes they probably do buy from out of town and what's your point? I bet you shopped at Dillon's and Walmart and never shopped in Manahattan did you? You are wrong too on the realtors making the most profit on building a new home because if the builder isn't making the most profit when building or selling then he just isn't a very good builder.
I have lived in this town my whole life, and just about all of the drama in real estate is a recent development. That's not to say that realtors probably haven't been sleeping around for all those years, but it does seem to have exploded recently.
When the building process started a few years ago, a large number of builders from outside the area did come in and steal this town blind, or rather it was given to them by the city leaders.
And yes, the real estate agents did make a pretty profit from all of the building that was going on.
Some agents were married to, engaged to or living with builders/developers/contractor s and were making money faster then they could spend it. They were the listing agent, selling agent and then they got money from their better half when the property sold.
Once the money started coming in, then all of the affairs and divorces started. People started switching teams left and right, suddenly no one could remain faithful for very long. And of course it was always someone else's fault that they cheated, it was never their own fault.
Just talk to some of the former spouses of these people and listen to their stories, it should break your heart, or at least piss you off a little, how some of these people were traded in for someone "better".
No one connected to the real estate market in this town has been left untouched, but the real harm is to all of the families that have been damaged by this.
And while you mentioned it, the city leaders are always shouting about how we should buy locally, but on any given weekend you'll see them shopping in Manhattan or Topeka or Salina.
These are just a few examples of why Junction City is called "Junktown" and always will be.

I wonder what the wives of the contractors think about all of this. Maybe they don't care as long as the money keeps rolling in. And maybe they just don't know what is going on, as most of the contractors don't even live in Junction City. They buy all of their supplies from Manhattan or Salina so most of the profit is spent elsewhere. The ones who profit the most in town are the realtors. No wunder they it Junktown.
You wonder what they wives think about all this, that's easy, they don't say anything in public, but damn do they open up in private. I've sat in on a couple of these private conversations.
Mostly they don't say anything about it to their husbands, because they don't want to be the next ex-wife. Sure, they'll get some money and other stuff in a divorce, but not nearly as much as if they stay in the marriage.
If you want to have some fun, go to Coach's some evening when the builders/contractors are there with their wives, and some of the local real estate agents, mostly the female ones, are there too. Then sit back and watch all of the dirty looks/stares, the finger pointing and the whispering. Everyone sees it, but no body says anything. The best part is when a builder and an agent will go outside for a "smoke" break, then when they're outside they start fooling around, hell I've even stumbled upon a few of them having sex in a car(s). And yes, I knew who they were and they knew me, and they weren't with their spouses in those cars.
It's all a game to these people, they don't care one way or another about anyone but themselves. Someday I hope to put this town as far behind me as possible.

Saying a Realtor isn't crooked is like saying a Politician doesn't lie.
Haven't met a Realtor yet in this town who knows what "Ethics" even means.

1. Tell client values won't drop, no matter the economy (Check)
2. Tell client not to worry, no developer will ever build there (Check)
3. Tell buyer not to worry about home inspection, house is brand new (Check)
4. Tell client to use certain kick-back builders who don't have a clue how to build a home (Check)
5. Tell clients those big rocks overhanging the home have engineer studies showing they are perfectly stable (Check)
6. Tell clients infrastructure is sign of upcoming housing boom, don't worry about empty lots that drive down price of surrounding houses (Check)
7. Tell clients to use certain "friendly" banks (check)
8. Tell clients not to worry about affordability, prices will jump as variable rates increase (Check)
9. Tell clients not to worry, appraisal will certainly come in to match price (check)
10. No, really, 9 is ok because appraiser is in bed with realtor (Check)
11. I could go on and on, but I have limited characters. Bottom line, Realtors care about the $$$$$$, not the client; period.

You’ve bought property from every realtor in town and they’ve all said or done #1-10 in your post? All 98 of the realtors in town? Boy you sure own a lot of property. Maybe you should get a license and save yourself all that commission money. Oh you didn’t work with every realtor in town, but your brother or best friend did right? Ridiculous BS.

I used to sell real estate in this town, worked for a local company for many years, but I had to get out because I just couldn't take it any more.
Just about every one of those comments are true. They may not apply to every realtor every time, but we (including me) have said those words to a client or fellow realtor.
One of the last deals I worked on was with a female agent that I had really respected. This was about two years ago and at the time her sales were really down, and she was desperate for a sale. We were concerned about the appraisal not coming in where it needed to be and that's when she told me that the appraiser had offered to "work" the numbers in our favor if she went out for drinks with him. Eventhough she was married at the time, she agreed. She later told me that after a few drinks they went to his car and talked, he said if she would give him a blow job, right there, he would make the numbers work. She never told me what she did that night, but a short time later, the appraisal came in where it needed to be and we closed the deal.
Several weeks later, I learned from a co-worker of hers, that she admitted to giving him the blow job because she needed the money. That's when I started looking for a new career and new friends.

You're so full of BS.

Now the area appraisers are all bad too?

You admit that what you posted isn't all true:
"Just about every one of those comments are true."

You state you've acted unethically, so why would anyone believe you:
"They may not apply to every realtor every time, but we (including me) have said those words to a client or fellow realtor."

No one sucked on anything except you at your job.

Ridiculous, you need to remove your rose colored glasses and see the real world. I never said "all" appraisers were bad, but this one had a history of doing such things, so much so that I was warned by my boss to be very careful around him.
And yes, I've made some of those statements to potential buyers and I've heard other agents say the same things. When sales are down and you're looking at a commission on a $200,000.00 house, there's not much you won't say to get a deal done. We (I) may not out right lie to a client, but we've all stretched the truth to the breaking point before, we've all reassured them that they would be alright in a house we suspected they couldn't really afford.
Yes, female agents are constently being hit on by lenders, appraisers, home inspectors, builders and contractors, clients and even fellow agents. I'm no saint, I didn't always refuse their advances and it cost me my marriage and finally my job, I just couldn't take the pressure anymore.
If you honestly don't believe that this crap happens, then you probably don't believe in anything. So sorry for you, but I've seen this and I've lived it.
I don't make as much money as I once did, but I'm happier and I sleep better at night.

Your just mad because your probably an agent that doesn't want to blow an appraiser for that commission. Get used to it sweetheart. If you want to make it in this sleazy whore filled business, you better get those lips greased up. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go lie to a client and blow an appraiser.

As I said in another thread... I'm willing to bet that most of the character assaults against realtors are coming from unemployed welfare parasites, spending all day on their welfare-supported online services, WinDoze XP computers with nothing better to do than drink cheap beer, watch MyTV and cry and moan on Topix, while the "PAST DUE" notices and "FORECLOSURE" statements pile up in the mailbox.
Too sad...
So, you`re either in the same category or you`re stealing time from your employer by being on Topix when you should be working. Nice.

I wish there was some way to talk to someone that has gone through this crap, and find out how many of these comments are true and how many are bullshit. I don't know anyone in the real estate business, we rent, but there has to be some way to find out the truth.
I read in an earlier post about some guy that was married to an agent, but not anymore, it would be very interesting to hear what he has to say about all this.
We are thinking of buying a house here in the near future, and I would like to know what we are getting ourselves into.
Does anyone know know which agents we should contact and which ones we should avoid?
