douchebag collarsOh! I totally forgot to tell you about how these Wall Street big whigs tried to cheat a Realtor in the Hamptons out of a summer rental commission. One even happened to be a lawyer! Few months ago, a real estate broker at Rosehip Partners showed a couple of Wall Streeters around some rental properties, as reported by Curbed Hamptons. One was an attorney with an investment bank, Goldman Sachs I believe, and one was a portfolio manager with a hedge fund. They dangled the phrase “all cash deal” under the broker’s nose, like most big shots do.  The poor broker spent a whole Saturday showing these guys seven rentals, which they apparently liked.

Yes, liked them so much they went behind the broker’s back to cut a deal with him not part of it. One of the Wall Street dudes actually left this note behind on the kitchen counter for the homeowner:

Next, “The agent got a call from a Southampton lawyer who’d had dinner with the owner of one of the rental properties. The owner was very upset after finding a note on the kitchen counter after the showing. The second was shoved under the front door later in the afternoon when the two guys returned by themselves.”

Here’s the note shoved under the door:Douchebag note 2
