Calculated Risk recently posted an entry to their blog entitled When Banker’s Decorate…


Let’s hope there is a significant amount of information that Travis Burton, a vice president for Perini Corp. is not conveying – such as interior designers or decorators accompanying the bankers while they make their visits and “consider changing the color palettes and finishes”.


What’s next…bankers offering staging advice to Realtors® or them possibly making recommendations to investors regarding multi-families?  I wouldn't so easily discount the suggestion, remember, it all flows downhill.


It must be noon somewhere.  I need Paul Harvey…and “The Rest of the Story."

They kind of do that all the time, they want to be mortgage brokers, they want to be Realtors, they want all kinds of stuff.  Banks are banks, just like Realtors are Realtors and we shouldn't be dabbling in each other's sandbox.  After all it is the client that is served by our expertise.  We are playing with large investments here, and knowing a little about a lot of things doesn't serve the client as being expert in our field does.  This is true in staging or selling homes, or banking.

Karen - Ahhhhhhhh, our very own mutual admirerer's is good ;)

For some reason I'm not getting notified when comments are left - surely you know I'd have called by now...but I'm pretty sure the ringer is working on my phone! :)

Terrylynn - I want a new bumper sticker: "Get Your Own Sand Box!"  Nah...just kidding, I like to share and learn from just about everyone; but I don't like being bullied and I do wonder about the potential for a bully factor in instances like this.

Thanks for your (as usual!) insightful comment.

Hi Jackie

I always say let the professionals do what they each do best... wouldn't want my dentist doing my yearly physical now would I? But it's all body parts isn't it? ;-)

Yes, that is part of the point, isn't it.  The bully factor, intimidation and it works unfortunately people will take the path of least resistance and don't always have the energy or time to stand up and speak up.  UGH.
