Walking through the master bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling, dark wood floors and his-and-hers bathrooms and closets, Schowalter says she wants to keep buyers focused on the property, not Madoff.
Taking a break from cleaning, a Marshals Service contractor, Mike Clawson, tells Schowalter of the difficulties he has encountered as he has tended to the 20-foot-tall ficus hedge in the front yard and the rest of the trees and greenery that provide privacy from the houses immediately next door.
People have walked by cursing him, assuming he works for Madoff, says Clawson, as he chomps on a cigar from the Dominican Republic. One woman hurled a bag of dog excrement at him, narrowly missing, he says.
