Bakersfield Bubble has been all over this story from the start. The little shoe-shine boy who got banks to loan him millions, then allegedly committed mortgage fraud all over California.
(Anyone remember ZZZZbest and Barry Minkow? Got some deja-vu)
Little boy Crisp was the American Dream (and crash), on a much bigger scale than Casey Serin. I really liked the articles that fawned all over the kid for his expensive suits and private jets. But of course, it was done on debt, you fricking MSM idiots. And when the Ponzi Scheme ended, fruitcake pretend businessmen like this are the first to fry.
From waiter to flashy real estate developer to Convict #275820
Here's how he was described by the clueless Realtor.org idiots in 2005:
Bling is the thing: Crisp insists that his salespeople wear professional attire and be well-groomed. He buys luxury automobiles for his salespeople and has flown clients in private jets to view properties. “Image is key in this market,” he says. “Clients want to feel important and be with a real estate professional who’s successful.”
And here's how David Crisp is being written about today:
Crisp & Cole's businesses & homes raided by FBI
The FBI is saying little about the raids at the homes and businesses of the once prominent real estate duo Crisp & Cole.
Today's raids come as the California Department of Real Estate has a number of serious accusations against the once, high profile Bakersfield real estate team, Crisp & Cole. The DRE says it was an investigation, quote, "several months" in the making. The realtors could have their licenses suspended or even revoked.
