yes it is true! My mom has a friend who is lesbian and her and her partner were trying to buy a house and they wouldn't let them get one because they were lesbian. So don't judge me if you have no idea what the h*ll you're talking about or don't understand the situation for me to be saying that.
There would have to be more behind that story. The agent makes a cut off of the sale, but they are not the ones who determine if someone can or cannot buy a house. The house has to be financed and loan approved by a financial institution...THAT is how it is determined of you are able to buy a house. The real estate agent only shows you the houses and takes the cut when its done. They do not get to choose who can buy and who cannot, that is up to the lenders to do.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
