I think my 11-year grandson could have written a better description. He would have at least gotten the spelling correct. LOL

WOW!  Doesn't this just floor you?  Imagine an 85 million dollar house without a photo or drawings or anything...

The Real Estate licensing exam here in Washington didn't have a spelling test, but sometimes I wish it did.  I'm grateful for spell check here in AR, and before I send any written pieces out I have my live in editor go over them, my wife.

Hey Jodie,

So who is the listing broker on this by the way?

85 Million??

Is it a commercial listing?
