No instances in Delta, but real estate agents cautioned
Delta Police have received a call about suspicious circumstances, and are sharing this information for precautionary purposes.
An unknown male has been repeatedly calling Metro Vancouver female real estate agents and making appointments to view listings. He is attempting to have the female agents conduct the showing for him alone, which goes against the policies of many real estate agencies.
The male has been observed at showings, however leaves once he finds the agent is not alone. No instances have occurred in Delta, but have been noted to occur throughout Metro Vancouver.
“We wanted to help spread the word, and urge agents not to conduct showings alone,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. “If any similar circumstances to this arise, agents are urged to contact police.”
The male is described as Asian with short black hair, a medium build and in his mid 20s.
