Steveb over at realestatetalks posted a link to honestrealestate.ca, and it is perhaps the most entertaining and bizarre example of an honest realtor in BC.
He offers his views on the Fraser Valley market (last updated June 06):
Residential Real Estate SALES so far in 2006 are running at what should become ALL-TIME NEW RECORD-LEVELS! (quickly and decisively topping previous-record 2005, which in turn topped year-earlier record 2004). May 2006 registered as the HIGHEST MAY we have ever seen. Any listing that is at all ATTRACTIVE usually SELLS VERY FAST, often with competing MULTIPLE OFFERS (and selling prices often HIGHER than asking price!).
He also offers spiritual advice and commentary on his status as a wingless earth-angel:
This Realtor, in addition to being an extraordinary and exemplary realtor, is now TOTALLY convinced he is wingless, living ‘EARTH-angel’, in a here-&-now godless heaven. –and, is THIS ever a whole BUNCH OF FUN! — just ASK ME!–
– I’m quickly getting into better physical condition, having so far dropped over 20 lbs.
– I’ve got truly huge amounts of energy & an infectious grin on my face. When I walk into a room, others can readily sense the energy coming from me. Most respond very warmly, positively. A few panic! (they’ll get over it, no one will get hurt)
– I now operate brilliantly on about 1&1/2 hours of sleep a night
– Food seems to be optional, no longer mandatory!
– I can suddenly cook ‘like an angel’
– I’ve got nearly-infallible INTUITION (when I remember to rely on it)
– Sex, even with just myself, is a whole new adventure every time. With my 59th birthday around the corner, I run around with a near-CONSTANT ERECTION that the viagra people would SIMPLE LOVE to be able to SELL you!).
(–NOW, IF MY LOVING BRIDE WOULD JUST PLEASE COME HOME, AND LOVE ME:There’s nothing to fear, really!–)
>—-DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND INTERESTING TO YOU??
.. oh, and thats not all, not by a long shot. Many more details including his connection with the rats, how to talk fun with dogs and his goal of converting as much of the world as possible into living earth angels who are ready to ride ‘the love train‘ – All this and more available at honestrealestate.ca
Just when I was starting to lose interest in Vancouver real estate something like this comes along.
