Do real estate agents score more sexual favours during home inspections than solicitors do at conveyancing settlements? Do agents experience more sexual harassment during inspections than solicitors at settlements? And how do DIY sellers fare?
I raised these not-often-asked questions with American lawyer / novelist Mark Gimenez at the 2008 Brisbane Writers’ Festival after he participated in a public discussion about his best-selling novel The Colour of Law . Mark said he’d be happy with my posting this piece on The Blog about a (sexual) real estate aspect of his novel – as I had done previously with one of crime-novelist John Sandford’s: Fictional Drug-Dealing Property Investment – How Close To Reality?
