A snake at yesterday's Burbank showing - real buyer or just lookie-loo?
Burbank hill estate was going very well until we came upon this visitor (shown in the photo above). I don't know what kind of snake it was, but it was about six feet long. Our reaction: first, we freaked out. Then we all pulled out our cell phone cameras and began snapping away. As the snake began to move closer to the house, listing agent Vangelis Korasidis offered him/her another property to view -- the inside of a green-waste bin. It was nice and shady in there, and obviously offered the true ambiance the reptile was looking for in a home. The snake went right in. The stalwart Trent of Jennings Termite showed up to escort the snake off the premises, and in all the commotion, the snake decided it didn't really appreciate the neighborhood character. It charged into the hillside bushes and wasn't seen again, which is probably a good thing as it did NOT appear to be a serious buyer.
