We have received notice from the Greater Boston Board of REALTORS┬« that a suspicious individual is contacting agents by phone in the Boston area. Specifically, a man identifying himself as Dwayne Bergeman, claiming to be relocating to Boston from Salem, Oregon, has called multiple female agents eager to be shown properties for sale in Boston or nearby suburbs. Most recently, he has contacted REALTORS┬« from phone number 503-910-0077. Searches online and via social media indicate a history of odd behavior and other issues in his contact with agents across the U.S. 

All members are encouraged to exercise extreme caution if contacted by this individual. As always we urge you to never meet individuals alone at a property, especially those you are meeting for the first time, and to follow other safety protocols established by your office.
