Last Week's Favorites: December 8th-15th

By
Real Estate Agent with Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc. AB95346

This has been a cold and icy week in much of the country, and it was tempting to just curl up with a purring cat and blog.  But I didn't.  Still, I did have time to find some gems among this week's posts, and here are my faves for the week:   

Loreena Yeo - Bye Bye AgentMatch  It was nice to hear about the end of a pretty bad idea.  Glad NAR re-thought this one.

Andrea Swiedler - It's not a closing, it's a bar exam question! And an interesting on at that!

Debbie Gartner - My open house survival kit + thanks George, Ginny, Pat & Dagny Whatever works!

Alan May - No upset stomach this year That I loved this one shows my age!

Caterina Bannier - Their Home Is Their Castle - Literally!  A fun post about a unique home.

Dick Greenberg - The Grab Bag - Be More Miserable  After reading this, I felt better.

Kathleen Daniels - Random Thoughts - What is it About Soup?  For me, it's chicken matzo ball 

Al Heidmann - It Can be Tough Being a Snowman - or a Real Estate Agent   I think it's easier for us.  

Charles Buell - What is the purpose of a home inspection?  Can we clone this guy?

George Souto - How Do You View Your Clients? It's a different perspective from a lender.

So you all stay warm, and I'll see you back here next week.  And blog on!

Patricia,  I've basically been living off of soup.  Soup is a warm food and I've been feeling cold - can't seem to warm up. I typically eat a lot of salad ... I guess we could say I still am ... only all the veggies are warmed up in a pot!  Thanks for the mention in this weeks favorites!!!
