Last Saturday, about this time, several Dallas Realtors and the Uptown Residents Council were springing from their beds because they had a busy, busy Saturday morning ahead of them, cleaning. Not just house cleaning, mind you, but dirty, gritty, wear your rubber gloves Uptown street cleaning. In conjunction with the annual “Celebrate Uptown” events of April 24th, 25 & 26th, and Earth Day, Council folks rolled out of bed, rolled up their sleeves and donned rubber gloves to pick up every piece of you-know-what (um, that too, literally) in between Woodall Rogers and 75, the Katy Trail and Cedar Springs focusing on Cityplace west, near the trolley turntable.
I love just about every one of the videos posted on MyAgentStory.com, but I think the one called “House Cat” featuring Linda Olsen is a lesson for all pet owners who are selling their home. This agents story has a twist, and you’ll have to watch it to the end to find out!

I love April Fools. My two favorite jokes include putting a rubber band around the kitchen faucet sprayer so that the unsuspecting user of said faucet gets soaked, and hijacking a friend’s phone and sending a picture of a positive pregnancy test to their entire contact list.
Fun morning last Thursday with members of the TIER networking group of darling Dallas realtors! They are Laura Saunders with Allie Beth, Karen Wyatt with Keller Williams Elite, Kamella Hollis with Allie Beth, Tiffany Strickland with Legacy Texas Title, Carrie Hill and Amy Timmerman from Nathan Grace, Lindsay Craig from Virginia Cook, Elisabeth Davis and Kay Wood from Briggs Freeman. This networking group was conceived four years ago just as the market started to crater, now there are 14 in the group that started when two colleagues, Amy Timmerman and Tiffany Strictland, went to lunch and decided they needed a forum to exchange and share ideas. Networking with other agents is a top priority, they tell me, especially in a market like our’s where inventory is shrinking.

Dallas Realtors, for the most part, call Steve Brown negative Nellie. He knows this, and almost delights in it. But I’m a little concerned he went too far in his latest story that shouts out “For Home Sellers, It’s Getting Tougher in Dallas.” First of all, this story will get on a Google feed and come across the screens of editors all over the US.

Zillow, which is based in Seattle, says home prices there are down about 31% from the 2007 peak. Real Estate there is as depressing as the weather.
