Tackling the big issues

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

April 18, 2011

Here we are on Alan's Blog tackling the big issues.  What are we talking about here?

Are we taking on Dual Agency again?  nah.

Average National Commissions?  nope.

Healthcare for Real Estate agents?   whaat?

Jon Kolsky's ongoing anger with Zillow?  Oh, puh-leeze

Nope, today we're, once again, talking weather in Chicago.  I awoke this morning... this April morning, to this sight on my car.  Granted, it's only a half inch of the soggy, heavy white stuff.  And north of us got measurable inches (plural)...

But it's mid-April, and I'm a little aggrieved.

where did I put that snowbrush?

Sorry buddy, I awoke to the birds at the feeders, my coffee and a stroll around the yard to check on my up coming blooms

Enjoy the day

Ahhhhhhhh.... I just came in from a walk on the beach. I am quite sweaty from the nice, toasty 84 degrees we have here in Miami.....

Oh, no! Did I just rub something in ?????

Gene - I'll bet you do... but even you, who are a touch further south, than I am, probably had a mere dusting.

Tammy - what time should I get there, and can I bring anything.  (where's my speedo?)

Kerrie - sorry, you're really breaking up!

Mud and snow was wonderful for the dogs, but the daffodils looked surprised.

Is this weather weird or not.  We have more rain in the forecast here.  I have never seen weather like it since I have been here.

Alan:

It's so sad to snow on your pretty car this late in April.  I think we may actually be through with it in Massachusetts.  I certainly hope so since I had my snow tires removed last week.

A chill was in the air here on Saturday morning. The agent upon arriving at my first inspection said she had seen some snow, but luckily it dissipated. I am so done with snow!
