THE SECOND STORY | September 3rd, 2020

Very strange ‘new’ listing narratives….

These kids are our hope for the future. (2 of     them are my grandkids.)

I found these listings descriptions to be funny. Maybe because I’m in my house, sitting at the computer watching Zoom/RingCentral meetings most of the day.

TAN means Total Agent Network (you need to be worthy of this listing model).  It’s not your regular MLS. It’s good for those agents that use it and are encouraging their Sellers to use it. I’m a member but I use it for info only. IMHO it’s a bit too exclusive…and I always encourage my clients to get the listing out there ASAP to AMAP (as many as possible).

“TAN Mountain View Cemetery, Oakland $2,295,000. Largest plot w/Grassy Yard, Home Office Family Room, Au-Pair Suite.”   I guess they’re planning for a spacious after-life.

Local agent advertising in the MLS “Watch beautiful sunsets from the deck with a view of estuary pond.” Pond? Really?

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull.
