From the mind of Karl Lueders

Posted by karl lueders sucks under: Main .

******************
Karl has removed the posts from his blog. The links go to google cache pages which too, will eventually go the way of his posts. In our opinion it was a mistake to remove the posts as it takes away the context of the quotes, but it’s his blog and he can do as he wishes. Eventually you will need to view the image files to get an idea of what he was writing about. We do have printed copies but will not be providing them on this site.
*******************

A visitor to our site sent us an email directing us to some interesting entries on Karl Lueders’ blog about “Denver Real Estate (and beyond)”. We’re not adding any commentary or opinion just passing them along to you. There are quotes below along with links to the google cache files so you can read them in complete context. We have also provided screen shots in case they disappear – the internet is funny like that. Please note that we have obfuscated just a few of the more offensive words.

In an entry titled “How Not to be a Dumb Ass Part II” Karl writes:
“Actually, I’ve never really considered real estate to be sales. It’s more of a popularity contest. The more people that know you and don’t think you’re a conniving pr*ck/bizzatch (women sell houses, too) will probably come to you to help them buy a dream house or sell their train wreck to some unsuspecting fool.” Then later..
“Note: one of the early warning signs of Dumbassness is failing to realize that reality doesn’t equal personal gratification. An example of this is hooking up with a girl, getting a bl*w j*b, and attempting to leave/sleep after the happy ending while she still has her clothes on. Barring the rare species of chick that “is cool with that,” the reality of the situation is that you’re in for a indefinite BAD time if you don’t attempt to reciprocate or at least call her the next day. Personal gratification = happy ending. Reality= bailing early means exile from p*ss*, at least in that circle of people.”

In an entry titled “How Not to be a Dumb Ass” he writes:
“March 11 may be the day I stopped being a Dumb Ass. This epiphany, however, didn’t come lightly. If I were an alcoholic and I reached my ultimate moment of clarity, March 11 would have been the day I was caught trying to rob a liquor store with nothing but a black d*ld* and a big urine stain on the front of my jeans, running in some stolen high-tops. ” He goes on..
“On March 11, the shit hammer caught me square on my right knee. It wasn’t because I’m a drunk, a 36-year-old occasional pot smoker and that I have enough porn on my laptop to open video store. (It may have been because I’ve racked up more than a couple thousand in gambling debts since 1999, the year I found “my” bookie, but I doubt it.)”

In an entry titled “How Not to be a Dumb Ass Part 3” he refers to Denver as follows:
“In that vein, Denver, this soulless, Sun Cityesque, ADA-accessible town”

And in “Free Speech in Colorado” he refers to the state:
“The normally puckered state of Colorado has surprised me in the past week or so…”

In an entry titled “Black Jokes” Karl wrote:
“Likewise, Republicans are probably not likely to accidentally call the new secretary of state as “C*nn*l*ng*s” Rice, although Democrats might. (Moreso because it sounds funny and they don’t really know that word means. Then again, if either party is going to know what c*nn*l*ng*s is, it’s probably the Democrats.)”

In a post titled “My Reunion Update” he writes:
“Not that real estate isn’t fun. Who doesn’t get off on ureturned phone calls, lying clients and d*psh*t coworkers who couldn’t get drunk in a distillery make more than you?”

Apparently this is the “and beyond” that Karl was referring to. We should point out that these writings are dated, and its possible that Karl Lueders’ perspectives have changed as he has matured, after all he wrote them when he was only 36.

** Please be aware we did not go digging through his trash can to find this stuff or hire an investigator, this is the content of Karl Lueders’ CURRENT blog.

omfg thats hilarious so are they going to sue karl for linking from their site to his blog? bahahahaaaaaa

marshall m Says:

5 August 2008 at 1:45 pm.

Well he didn’t stop being a dumba$$ on March 11 that much is clear. I’m thrilled to know he thinks so highly of Colorado that he calls it souless and compares it to Sun City. I wonder how thrilled “the premier real estate firm servicing Metro Denver” will feel about their chosen son now.

Carl not Karl Says:

5 August 2008 at 2:39 pm.

I can’t say I’m shocked that he wrote all that, but I am shocked that he has it on his Real Estate blog. It really does seem that as each day passes The Kentwood Company at Cherry Creek or otherwise, has to wipe more and more egg off their faces. Amazing that this person is a broker in their prestigious firm. I’ll bet the owner of the home in that photo he’s using wouldn’t be happy to know that Karl’s blog and his house are now linked.

If you haven’t already filed your complaint with the Association of Realtors then be sure to add this information in. Print up all the posts and save them. If you have already filed then be sure to call the investigator and provide them with the link to this post. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE public behavior for licensed Realtor.

Well it looks like it’s catching! Kentwood embarrasses themselves with a silly and sad lawsuit and then Karl does the same right after.
Black eyes all around.

Joshua Says:

He might be the one who posted the threat in that ugly comment. It’s obvious that he would be willing to use that sort of language. I am shocked that Kentwood is keeping this person around.

The Denver Board of Realtors, Colorado Association and National Association should be notified immediately. We all work too hard to promote our industry as one of professionals and professionalism.

I am surprised the guy thought he had a shot at writing after reading his posts. They are terrible. If I were Karl I would be looking at job prospects outside of real estate (and no mortgages KARL) immediately!

I sincerely hope the commission rids us of this problem.

karl lueders sucks Says:

5 August 2008 at 10:20 pm.

Joshua, we don’t think Karl made the nasty comment, we suppose he could have but again we are giving him the unearned benefit of the doubt.

Hey Joe, when we found the site and we read some of the posts the consensus was I don’t know what he’s trying to say but still I’m offended. It’s a style that does nothing for anyone we have shown it to. We have the entire selection of posts saved to pdf for submission have no fear.

RunOfTheDill Says:

5 August 2008 at 10:26 pm.

karl seems to be one of those people that believes that strining random words together is writing. Its no wonder hes in real estate but hes not doing well there either. So my question is who does he know or who is he sleeping with? I cant believe that a company like kentwood would willingly keep this guy on board.

Conspiracies R Us Says:

5 August 2008 at 11:56 pm.

Is it possible that Karl is working undercover for Coldwell Banker to take down Kentwood from the inside?

MtnRealtor Says:

6 August 2008 at 8:21 am.

Well the emails are going around again telling people to come check out the updates here and I have to say things are really heating up. I am in shock that Kentwood is allowing this one Realtor to destroy the reputation that they worked so hard to gain. I don’t know if it’s just ego clouding their vision or if this is being kept from the people who helped this company get to where it is, but Kentwood is quickly becoming a laughing stock.

Cece Says:

I just can’t believe this guy works for Kentwood.

How not to be a dumbass part 4

Do not sign on as an attorney to represent Kentwood Company

Be fortunate enough not to be born as Karl Lueders

It’s too bad that the shit hammer didn’t catch Karl right between the eyes.

Kentwood I am starting to beleive that you aren’t going to recover from this mess. My entire office is talking about how you guys messed this one up. What a PR nightmare.

the shadow Says:

6 August 2008 at 2:50 pm.

i have to thank you guys for this site i’ve scored 2 listings that could have gone to kentwood cherry creek. all i had to do was point them here and they rethought things. kentwood is doing the other brokerages a great service!

harley quinn Says:

6 August 2008 at 3:48 pm.

i spent some time on karls site reading his blog and i have to agree with the others here, it’s really hard to read. his style if you can call it that is hard to grasp. i suspect that he’s writing when he’s high. here’s a couple examples
(Notes from a conversation with Karl Lueders… as told to Karl Lueders):
or another
This plus paid for Karl Lueders of the Kentwood Company at Cherry Creek.
and those are from june and july this year. of course this blog could be the reason he’s getting drunk or stoned.

i said it before he doesn’t fit the kentwood mold, maybe they are taking a new approach. with our current economy maybe they want to appeal to more of the market so they are going in this direction.

Prudential Agent Says:

6 August 2008 at 7:46 pm.

Wow what a mess this situation is, a soap opera even. I think that Kentwood has backed themselves into a corner and they have no way out.
What I believe is that they failed to understand how badly this would hurt their reputation. I don’t think they “knew” who they hired and miscalculated the power of the interet. Now they have further damaged themselves with this lawsuit, forgetting that people love a good David and Golaith story. The agent that they hired weakened their position by apparently being himself. Those blog posts being on his Real Estate blog that Kentwood links to in his bio on their site, don’t add any credibility to the company or the agent. I can’t imagine anyone who takes the time to read this site, sees the lawsuit and reads Karl’s words, won’t take the side of “David” in this.

I am just happy I don’t work at Kentwood, and that I’m not a PR agent for Kentwood. I think the only way out of the corner is to take their hat and wallet in hand and go to these people and apologize. The battle is lost and this story is out there.

Joe Says:

7 August 2008 at 12:51 am.

I wish some Kentwood agents would chime in on this. It could be anonymous but I am beyond curious what they are told, if anything, and what they think about it.

Rick Says:

7 August 2008 at 7:50 am.

@the shadow, someone in my office suggested putting a post it note on kentwood yard signs with the url. He figures if you have a sign nearby you could poach the client. I have no idea how serious he is but if he sees your post it might encourage him.

@harley quinn, your boyfriend is nuts but was entertaining and disturbing to watch. So are you suggesting that Kentwood is looking to sell crack dens?

@Prudential Agent, shhhhh! The longer they continue with this saga the better for the other agents in the area.

@Joe, I have no idea what they’re being told, if anything, but I can tell you this much, if I was working there I would be none to happy. He’s apparently in with the managing broker, however he’s achieved that. At some point you’d think she’d get the boot for keeping this moron around.

.. Says:

7 August 2008 at 8:36 am.

@joe how do you know they haven’t? i mean how do we know that someone posting that karl and gretchen are in bed together aren’t speaking from a place of knowledge? maybe Conspiracies R Us is a kentwood agent trying to figure out why this guy is doing this to his or her company.

this whole situation stinks. i think it would be great if kentwood went down for this and they could credit karl and their own shi**y attitude if they did.

oh and gretchen’s short blogroll also includes a link to karl’s real estate and beyond blog. she seems to have it pretty bad for her bad boy.

Marilyn Says:

7 August 2008 at 9:39 am.

I’ve been reading quietly while all these claims of Gretchen and Karl “being in bed” are made. I was of the mind that it was just people being catty but now I don’t know. It’s very strange to me that Gretchen a managing broker who really should know better, would stick her neck out for a new agent in the manner that she has. Not that there shouldn’t be some company loyalty, but he’s new and with that she wouldn’t know him very well. One would think she’d sit back and see how this played out. If in fact she knows Karl better than a boss should, then she should never have come out to your home to speak with you, she should have asked Carol Ihli the other managing broker to come out in her place, just as she should recuse herself in any dealings you have with the Denver Assocision of Realtors. I agree with many of the other people commenting, something smells fishy and I do not say that lightly.

harley quinn Says:

7 August 2008 at 3:52 pm.

Rick my boyfriend is a maniac! crack dens, shanty towns, kentwood needs to make it’s money where it can. so karl might just be their ticket to a whole new market.

joe the only thing I can tell you is i have a source that says that they are pretending it’s business as usual and you can’t get to the site from there. hope that helps you out.

yeah i don’t see any problem with educating the public at large about a company that just doesn’t care about their clients. that postit idea i’ll have to think about that one. i was going to suggest to karlsucks to go to karls open houses that might get some attention. as long as you stay on the sidewalk and you don’t interfere you should be fine. it might not even hurt to go to gretchens open houses.

dramarama Says:

8 August 2008 at 6:14 pm.

@.. he deleted his myspace profile! See what you did now? Guess Kentwood doesn’t want him going around saying he works for The Kentwood Company. So we should start posting all the places their cherry creek agents say they work for Kentwood and time how fast they have it removed. Of course take screen shots first.
I’ll go first! How about where Karl says on his blog ‘Karl Lueders at The Kentwood Company’ and then links to his Kentwood profile. Ready. Set. Delete!

karl really does suck Says:

8 August 2008 at 8:48 pm.

Any one take the time to read this insightful posting of Karls?

In 1999, Lueders left Chicago for Colorado, where he duped another magazine publisher into signing him to lucrative deal because she failed to check his inflated salary history claims.

During this “salad years” period, Lueders used his position for personal gain, while his homely art director suffered from his regularly missed deadlines. Business meetings, aka powder days, transformed Lueders into an expert snowboarder. He became adept at handling powerful firearms and his disdain for rush hour traffic caused him to become good friends with many happy hour bartenders in the Denver metro area.

i am personally sick and tired of Reatlors taking advantage of people and will be happy to see this guy go down.

the shadow Says:

10 August 2008 at 12:55 pm.

since we know about the properties that karl has listed what say someone send them a friendly postcard educating them? marketing letters are sent all the time so there should be no issue with sending someone a note to take a look online about their realtor and the brokerage. might not even hurt to send them to gretchens clients.

.. Says:

11 August 2008 at 11:58 am.

@dramarama no new changes on his end, he still works for the Kentwood Company whether they want him or not. i’ve had 3 requests for the pdfs of his stories so far.

@disgusted you summarized his posts beautifully.

@the shadow i think you might be on to something.

Joe Says:

12 August 2008 at 12:32 am.

For the people who think Gretchen must be in bed with Karl simply because he hasn’t been 86′ed I would offer you the following:

I am sure they would love to ax the dude. However, their stance has been and still is that they have done NO wrong and have no culpability here. If they got rid of Karl now it certainly would look bad. It would look like an admission of sorts. They know that and they know there is no way to minimize or reduce how it would look. So for the time being they get to keep good ‘ol Karl around the office.

I wonder if he is like Gollum in the office? Crawling through the shadows and avoided like the plague! ha ha ha ha. It can’t be pretty.

My rule in business is this: Most people have Irish Alzheimers. They forget everything BUT THE GRUDGE!!! So you are better off taking care of business at all costs!

Joe Says:

12 August 2008 at 12:38 am.

@ .. “I am personally sick and tired of realtors taking advantage of people…” Can we expect a blog from you soon? Wow!

Man, I wonder what my closest friends, clients, and even family think of and say about me when I am not around?
Insert :sound of self esteem crashing at the speed of light:

Rick Says:

12 August 2008 at 7:56 am.

@shadow, i agree with .. i don’t see any reason that sending a letter or postcard would be a problem. Gretchan and Karl have both publically posted the houses addresses that they represent and you wouldn’t be violating any laws that I can think of.

.. Says:

12 August 2008 at 10:37 am.

@Joe i think your missing the main reason that most people think that gretchen and karl are hooking up, gretchen. she and karl both have blogs and their blogroll is short but somehow they are linking to each other. she is a managing broker and the only agent she links to is karl. then she goes on twitter and tells everyone to follow karl because he’s a great guy. the woman has gone out of her way to publicly support this guy. she is his boss and from what people have said a pretty savvy woman so does that make any sense to you? if i were her husband i would be wondering what the heck was going on that she would put her neck on the line for him. i mean he’s even making things worse like his blog posts and then saying The Kentwood Company at any chance he has, so he’s thumbing his nose at her support. i mean come on, what makes a savvy business woman act that way?

again @Joe i actually do blog but not about real estate and no i’m not going to post a link here. you might be the greatest real estate agent that has ever lived but i have known some real crooks and liars which our mutual friend here karl is one of. i’m thinking that gretchen out of apathy has joined the ranks as well.

Joe Says:

12 August 2008 at 10:06 pm.

@..

I have to say a lot of the twitter, del.i.cious and all that other stuff goes right over my head. I have recently resurrected my blogs but I can’t seem to understand all the different sites that can integrate or whatever.

As for me being the best real estate agent ever, I can personally tell you I am not. I am very good at what I do but by no means the best. My clients tend to give me very high remarks but there is always room for improvement and if you blink the industry will pass you by.

I do not disagree that there have not been some shady people in any business let alone real estate. I just think people have the impression that Gretchen is Karl’s boss when she is not. She is the managing broker for the office but ultimately Karl is an independent contractor. Unless he is a hired W-2 employee for Kentwood but I have not seen that structure in a RE office.

I don’t think they are in bed together and if I were Gretchen’s husband I would not be concerned. The bottom line is the minute they took the stance they did nothing wrong, they forever linked their fates with regard to this case. It is now in Gretchen’s best interests to see this thing out to the best possible resolution all while doing damage control. So any site linking and what not is mutually beneficial. I am not so sure that they are not getting outside advice regarding the blogs. Maybe the IT guy, Mr. Hooked on Phonics, suggested it. After all, most agents that blog did so in the past.

.. Says:

12 August 2008 at 10:27 pm.

@Joe now we’re splitting hairs. gretchen may not be the typical boss but she is most certainly his superior. everything an agent does comes back on their managing broker and so you’re right they have linked their fates. i’m still going to say that sitting back vs making public statements about the guy would have been the better route and i do think that something’s there because for me being in bed doesn’t always mean for sex. you know she co manages that location and you don’t see carolyn kissing karl’s rear end in public just sayin.
anyway i think that the opportunity for the best possible resolution has passed them by only they’re too arrogant to see that.

the shadow Says:

13 August 2008 at 8:19 am.

gretchen is ultimately responsible for the actions of her agent like a manager or supervisor so I have to agree that it’s splitting hairs to say she isn’t his boss. I don’t know if she’s in bed with him or not, I hope she has better taste he looks like a balding lush and she’s a pretty good looking woman. but you know hormones are responsible for many a bad decision and I have to say that backing karl is looking like a really bad decision.

Oledave Says:

21 August 2008 at 3:07 pm.

When I first read that Gretchen was involved, I thought Karl would surely get screwed out of his commission by his broker. That’s about par for the course in Kentwood country. What I didn’t realize was that Karl was ALREADY getting screwed by his broker. Also par for the course in Kentwood country.

I hope he is stupid enough to try to come after you, so you can point out to his crack team of legal experts that he trashed himself on his own blog. It’s going to be hard to make a case that you damaged him when it’s clear that he damaged his own reputation in so many ways.

It is amazing that this guy is still with Kentwood, I really thought better of them.

Closer Says:

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Mr Lueders and I have to say he is a douche bag. I’m sorry that he was so worthless in assisting you with your purchase. I wish you luck with your home and know that he will get his.

Katy Says:

29 November 2008 at 7:50 pm.

I can’t imagine anyone wanting this idiot to represent them in the biggest purchase of their lives.

karl is a dumb bunny

Pax Says:

13 December 2008 at 1:28 am.

Geez, I really don’t get what he thought he was doing. Agents like this make all of us in the industry look terrible and with everything going on, we don’t need any more negativity.

SCo Says:

24 December 2008 at 9:26 am.

Man I wish Karl left his posts up, from what I’ve heard they were great reading while you’re high! He is a moron no doubt about it.

Boarder Boy Says:

25 December 2008 at 6:44 am.

No original comment, just the observation that this guy has to be missing some of his marbles.

I love that this post is still circulating out there. I worked on a deal with Karl that ended up falling through, this doesn’t surprise me one bit. I am happy that he’s getting his comeuppance.

lurve the rockies Says:

25 January 2009 at 4:47 pm.

i have to admit this is funny, i can’t believe he thought writing that on his work blog was a good idea

Holly Says:

26 January 2009 at 10:15 pm.

This is some of the funniest stuff I have read and I can’t believe someone would post that garbage on their own blog. I understand why he took it off.

Tom Hsu Says:

27 January 2009 at 7:48 am.

I am only tangentially involved in Real Estate but I still ended up on a mass email about this guy. He has really built up a following.
The fact that he won’t even apologize makes me feel he’s getting exactly what’s coming to him

glen110 Says:

28 January 2009 at 1:27 pm.

This situation is a mess. It seems clear to me if this guy had half a brain he would apologize. I understand after reading all this, why he hasn’t

Tony GT Says:

30 January 2009 at 5:51 pm.

It’s really too bad that you didn’t know all this before signing on with him to represent you. Hopefully this site will help others from making the same mistakes.

Jayden Says:

1 February 2009 at 5:09 pm.

It should be no shock to anyone why our economy is in the shape it is. We had people like this selling real estate to buyers who didn’t know any better. What a mess.

itchiodo Says:

2 February 2009 at 2:47 am.

he had to be high to put all that on his blog i am really shocked he works for kentwood

Bam Says:

2 February 2009 at 1:09 pm.

Hes an imbecile.

rather not say Says:

3 February 2009 at 5:08 pm.

i don’t know how you got my address to send this to me but please refrain from sending me any more email.
—–
We have never sent emails out about this site to anyone, from the comments we have been receiving it seems that someone in the Real Estate industry, possibly someone who knows Karl has sent this around to people they know. This has become easily the most popular post on this site and it looks like it’s happened completely by people sending it around. We are sorry you received unsolicited email, we would advise replying to it to ask them not to send you anymore.

ROFLMAO this guy is a genius

messytess Says:

10 February 2009 at 8:31 am.

I can’t believe a real professional would behave in this manner, this guy is a disgrace.

stupid

shameful

M Abrahms Says:

26 February 2009 at 11:32 am.

This guy is a real winner. I wonder how many people sitting across the bargaining table from Karl know about this site and laugh at him.

miri Says:

4 March 2009 at 7:56 pm.

this guys idiocy is boundless

Boa Says:

5 March 2009 at 7:23 am.

I was told about this site at my recent closing. It’s absolutely amazing that Kentwood has this guy representing them.

Remmy Says:

9 March 2009 at 8:18 am.

I think your usage of “from the mind” isn’t correct it sounds like this stuff was from somwhere else.

dizi Says:

7 April 2009 at 10:00 am.

this guy is fantastic! go karl go blaze up buddy!

Appolo Says:

10 April 2009 at 9:46 am.

This sounds about right, I’ve dealt with Karl a couple times and he really didn’t seem to know what the hell he was doing either time

SID Says:

11 April 2009 at 9:59 am.

ARE YOU AWARE THAT YOUR SITES SHOW HIGHER THAN KARLS IN GOOGLE?

Rain Says:

I can’t believe that Kentwood continues to do business with his jackass it’s amazing.

CB Says:

Wow, what a dummy

marr Says:

It’s too bad he took it all down, I would love to read his stuff, I could use a good laugh.

Viv Says:

25 May 2009 at 10:14 am.

As a Realtor in the Denver Metro area I would like to extend an apology to you for the manner in which you were treated. Not all Realtors do business in the dishonest way that Karl does and to be sure, not all companies would condone his behavior as Kentwood has. I see from your recent updates that you continue to make your problematic purchase, a home, bless you in your courage and perseverance.

7 June 2009 at 9:40 pm.

i am amazed thtat this is still getting sent around i just got emailed a link to this AGAIN. hes still an idiot

Kelly Says:

10 June 2009 at 5:05 pm.

I’ve worked with Karl before and he doesn’t seem like such a bad guy. He does seem to lack some common sense but we all make mistakes. I do wish he would have at the very least apologized to you.

.. Says:

13 June 2009 at 1:56 pm.

@kelly are you kidding? he may not seem like a bad guy but have you read this stuff? he was their buyers agent and he had nothing but his own agenda on his mind.

Tuh Says:

17 June 2009 at 6:53 pm.

had the pleasure of meeting this guy not too long ago and this sounds about right

margo Says:

10 September 2009 at 7:59 pm.

So has he said anything else that would amuse us?

carrie Says:

12 September 2009 at 8:36 pm.

nothing would surprise me about this loser

Sherry Says:

20 September 2009 at 10:22 pm.

It makes me sad to know that this guy is still a Realtor.

Fie Says:

29 October 2009 at 12:22 am.

randy Says:

who would rite stuff like this on their work blog?????

Ivy Says:

19 December 2009 at 11:31 pm.

I just started at a competing agency and one of the agents told me to check this site out so sorry you’ve been put through this by this guy.

Gerri Says:

29 December 2009 at 12:47 am.

What a shame that this guy is still pulling the wool over peoepls eyes.

Diny Says:

2 February 2010 at 12:20 am.

I don’t think this is how he thought all of this would turn out.

TyRiK Says:

7 February 2010 at 8:08 pm.

thanks for the laugh! the guy is a idiot.

Pam Says:

6 June 2010 at 1:56 pm.

A friend recommended Karl so we looked him up and I don’t think we’ll be using him.

mari Says:

9 June 2010 at 10:14 pm.

this is really a what not to do example

MS REALTOR Says:

11 June 2010 at 2:38 pm.

I’ll be sharing this with my Agents today. We’ve been discussing how Agents should conduct themselves on the net, this is a prime example of how we shouldn’t behave. Good luck to you.

DebConso Says:

Chimi Says:

J Wheeler Says:

11 September 2010 at 6:42 am.

Hard to believe this guy is still working for Kentwood.

P Says:

23 September 2010 at 11:31 am.

please tell me he’s posted more of this gold!

kj Says:

14 October 2010 at 12:03 pm.

this thing is making its way around via email again.
what a d-bag

ryan Says:

14 October 2010 at 12:37 pm.

Just like kj I got here from an email. This guy is really something.

Astonished Realtor Says:

15 October 2010 at 2:38 pm.

I am impressed by Kentwood and Gretchen’s complete lack of standards. I cannot believe that not only did Gretchen bring this guy on but she kept him on after this debacle. Gretchen doesn’t care about the rest of her agents, that much is clear. We aren’t all bad and I hope you can find your way to seeing that.

000 Says:

17 October 2010 at 5:45 pm.

Suggetion for a new title
Karl spews garbage out his ass

Lauren Says:

10 December 2010 at 8:46 pm.

This is like a wikileaks site for Mr Lueders. You need to post information about his infidelity and how it looks like it might finally be catching up with him.

funnystuff Says:

18 December 2010 at 8:46 am.

This isn’t even the worst he’s ever written. Guy thinks he’s a writer, thinks hes some sort of real estate guru and all he is is a con artist

Tiggy Says:

10 January 2011 at 1:55 pm.

It’s astounding that Kentwood Company, who I believed to be professional, still has this clown representing them.

Len Says:

16 April 2011 at 12:24 pm.

Do you happen to know where I can find more of this guys writing it’s too funny.

mazing Says:

7 May 2011 at 9:54 am.

wtf the guy is an idiot

Tim Says:

9 May 2011 at 11:00 pm.

It really doesn’t get better than this does it? Real Estate and beyond for sure. The guy needs to get his marlbes checked.

ubo Says:

22 May 2011 at 9:01 pm.

everything that could be said has pretty much been said so i’lll just concur that the guy is a moron

I love kral Says:

I do not agree with all of you!

astonishes Says:

I have no idea how this guy came to work with Kentwood but more than that, how is he still there?

tootie Says:

10 October 2011 at 1:57 pm.

I know I can’t possibly say anything that hasn’t been said already, I just wanted to add my voice to the many in saying this Karl guy is a moron.

Winnie Says:

13 October 2011 at 4:20 pm.

Im Sorry you had to deal with this dumbass

Eugene Says:

4 February 2012 at 12:02 am.

Really nothing more to be said, this guy is just nuts and the company must be too for letting him represent them.

Ed Says:

19 July 2012 at 11:26 am.

Very funny post…

KB Says:

7 June 2013 at 11:28 am.

After dealing with this imbecile a few times a colleague told me to look him up on google, this is some funny stuff.
He’s still as shady as ever.
