Talk about some dirt! Fox Business host Gerri Willis of “The Willis Report” had super hot broker Rogers Healy on her show yesterday after news broke that a New Jersey couple is suing their Realtor for using their home for a love nest while it was listed.
Healy offered some tips for homeowners on screening Realtors, noting that this sort of thing is extremely rare.

Some interesting notes from Healy’s interview:
– You can make sure your Realtor is on the up-and-up by calling your local Realtor board and checking into their status. You can also look up their license and standing with your state’s real estate commission.
– Wary of opening your home to a bunch strangers for open houses? Healy says they’re not really necessary anymore, as 90 percent of homebuyers are shopping online. That’s good news, since open houses have been known to attract jewelry and drug thieves.
– To make sure only serious buyers view your property, make sure buyer’s agents have their clients pre-qualify before they step foot in your home.
