Another tragic real estate agent attacked story. This time, it was a male agent who was robbed and gunned down. The perp was an 18-year old who set up the appointment with intentions of robbing and killing the agent.
Police say Dillon Nicholas Augustyniak, 18, of Jessup, Maryland, went into a model home Wednesday and shot Steven Bernard Wilson. Police believe Augustyniak planned the attack and came to the home to rob Wilson. Police allege the teen stole Wilson’s phone and laptop and investigators believe he tried to sell the gun he used in the killing.
The 33-year-old married father of two young children was pronounced dead at the scene.
One of the key strategies I teach is to ALWAYS tell your prospect that you AND YOUR PARTNER will meet him/her at the property. This kid probably would not have shown up because it would be too risky to try to rob two agents. Augustyniak has been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.
The best defense is strategic prevention. If you think a gun is the answer, watch this: https://pxlme.me/BMs6lqat
