Do listing photos really matter? - 06/27/11 12:44 AM
Legally, I can't copy and paste samples of the thousands of poor quality listing photos that I see every single day on the MLS. Bad listing photos are one of my pet peeves and I always wonder if the seller has ever seen what their home looks like online. So this is for you, Sellers of the world (and especially Chandler, Sun Lakes and the surrounding East Valley!). Please, ask any agent you are interviewing to show you samples of his/her listings. How do they look to you? Is the photography clear and well lit? Or, do their listing photos look (19 comments)

The Heart Attack Grill...D.O.A. - 06/02/11 12:49 PM
The Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona appears to be DOA. Back in 2008, I posted a blog entitled "The Heart Attack Grill..it ain't your mama's restaurant" proclaiming this restaurant would never make my "have to eat there" list. I had a real problem with a restaurant that promotes unhealthy eating as being a good thing. Patrons weighing over 350lbs ate for free and just a single meal in the restaurant could actually cause a heart attack in my opinion, which was confirmed by their motto "A taste worth dying for" Menu options were simple and deadly.
