Looking Out From the Garage

This is RICH!!!

Garrett on the slideOMG, I can barely contain myself.  Seriously.  

I have about 30 blogs I keep up with every day... most every day.  And, if you didn't figure out from this post, one of them is the President's Report from the NAR. 

So, this evening I was reviewing my reading and up popped this post.  Could it be that enough of YOU here on little ol' A/R shook up the NAR leadership?  

We understand that blogs are designed to be both informative and interactive. When we put thoughts here, we want to inspire discussion and comments from you.


I am pleased to say that we have received dozens of comments – some positive, some critical. Considering how much we are traveling (I am in Italy right now), we won’t respond to every comment and question, but I assure you that we read ALL of the comments – even if we can’t post them or respond. {bold added by me}

Jay Thompson beat me to the punch... and got his comment published.  He has a MUCH (stratospherically) more read outside blog.  Maybe that got him posted...

But I sincerely hope you are not selectively picking and choosing which comments to post...

So, I think that we were noticed.  But, sadly, the leadership at the NAR are still having trouble understanding what transparency entails.  I want to help...

If it isn't obscene, and doesn't attack people personally, it should probably be posted. 

If in doubt, let the comment through.

And I would like to thank the scores of members and others that commented on the other post.  Your comments are the reason the post was noticed by the NAR leadership.

I am very sad to say…
Not shocked… but sad. Actually, I'm not shocked at all. And maybe sad isn't the right word… disgusted would be better… And I really hope the right people find this post… A few days ago, I posted a comment on the… more
Is a clear sky blue?
Sitting down this morning getting my Fox News fix, I noticed a release by the NAR that has me re-thinking a position I have taken… Here is the link to the NAR news release To summarize, the position the NAR takes is that housing will… more
R is for REALTOR(R)
I know I'm being picky, but this needs to be said. All REALTORS(R) are real estate agents, but all real estate agents aren't REALTORS(R). One becomes a real estate agent by passing a test. One becomes a REALTOR(R) by joining the… more
What does being a REALTOR(R) really mean?
This post has been floating around in my head for quite a while… if you read my blog regularly, you might have noticed that I've been dancing around this for more than a month. While my son is still groggy from his nap, and content with The… more
Are there just too many real estate agents?
OK, stick with me here for a few minutes. I think this is becoming a more valid question. Looking at the most recent numbers I could find in a quick internet search, I found that there were over 1. 3 million REALTORs (as of November 2006), and that… more
