It Rains On Fantasy Island!

I received a call a couple of days ago from a reporter who writes consumer focused columns for the Washington Post Copy Writers group.

 

The reason they called was they had read the following post:

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Island - Revisited!

 

They said they agreed with my perspective, and that they would be quoting me in an article to be published next week.

 

We spoke for about 30 minutes or so.

 

They had some great questions - some of which I could not answer with certainty - such as what percentage of listings are overpriced.  

 

Cancelled and Expired are easy to find.  Sold listings that started at a much higher list price can be identified - but there is a little more work involved.  

 

And then there are those Cancelled or Expired Listings that were immediately relisted at a lower price and then subsequently sold.

 

So - blog post begets attention.

 

Attention begets interview.

 

Publication of interview begets???

 

We'll know soon!

Hi Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers.  I wonder what spin the reporter will give it?

Hi Tony Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers I only hope that all your work will pay a dividend. These guys have a way of spinning Realtors in a bad light.

But blogging does pay dividends, and maybe this will get you a few more listings (at the right price of course).

Just a warning.  I was VERY misquoted by someone after a similar phone call.

I've been interviewed and quoted several times over the years - so far no issues Bill Roberts .  Did I mention, Arizona is a "One Party" state as far as it being legal to record your phone conversations?!
