3. No warm welcome here
4. Moving day misconceptions

5. Breakfast (dinner) of champions
6. Tools of the trade
How many Realtors you know carry bolt cutters in their car? 👐 (points to self) this guy does. Comes in handy when the crawl space is locked and the inspector & termite guy can't get access… and noone knows the combo or has the key. #LetsWork #realtorlife #RealEstate #realtorissues #realtorproblems #VeteranRealtor #AllAmericanRealtor

Clients just a friendly FYI don't lock the house up with the keys you're suppose to be giving to me to show your property. Because it doesn't look to great to the neighbor when I'm climbing over the balcony and sliding through the patio door. #RealtorIssues #IamDanteTheRealtor #IrvinePDCalled
23. When a wifi upgrade leaves you upside down…
24. Gettin’ it done.
I just used a brick I found to hammer a sign in bc I forgot my mallet. #realtorissues
