Sharing A Book - Sex And Real Estate

Services for Real Estate Pros with RealSatisfied

Sex And Real Estate BookThe first book I shared, The Tipping Point, was mailed to the winner, Jeff Gingerich, last week.

That book was shared from, but this book, Sex And Real Estate, simply MUST be given away here on Active Rain. Why? Because this is where I wrote the original reviews and posts about this very interesting book. These posts still get visits two years after the fact. And the content of the book will always be relevant, in my opinion.

"When you stop to think about it, buying and selling a house is a lot like dating," says Margorie Garber, "the same quickening of the pulse, the lingering around the phone, willing it to ring." Good markets or bad markets, that does not change.

If you'd like to read my thoughts on the book, here are a few links:

So here's how this will work. Simply leave a comment here indicating that you'd like to read this book and tommorrow at noon, PST, I'll select a comment randomly and send the book to you. The catch, you have to read it, write your own review and then offer it up to someone else.

Sound fair?

Well, I'm way too late for the contest but not too late to read the book.  I'm looking forward to it.

Hey Jeff.  Thanks for sending me the book.  I did enjoy it and could relate to much of her concepts.

I wrote my review and posted it yesterday.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  I am fairly new to blogging and would actually like some pointers on catching people's attention more.

I have been asked to head a social internet networking group at the office and ideas from you would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for the book.  It is being passed on to my Broker who is way up there in points on Active Rain and likes to read.

Be well.

And I think you should be nice to me more often, but we both know neither are going to happen. :)

Jeff-As we know there is a certain rush that comes with sex, just the word alone warrants attention and hopefully happy results.  Real estate provides a rush, yet in a different way.  I guess it just depends on how you look at things all together.  Interesting book, I might have to get a copy of it.  Thanks for sharing.

I have also used the analogy that buying or selling a house is like dating and you end up missing your clients; that is why I stay in touch with them; because I care about them.

The title is eye-catching and I have never heard of it, but I am an avid reader and I would be honored to be selected to read this book with a promise I would pass it on!

Moms are indeed a force to be reckoned with. Our assistant music teacher got the axe in recent budget cuts and a group of us band mommies said NOT SO FAST...we're hiring him by the hour and paying for it with concession/bake sale money. OK, a LOT of concession and bake sale money. Moms ROCK!

Titles are sometimes everything, right? 

But i myself compare looking for the house as a dating process:)
