The wisdom of realtor on commission Connie De Groot, for some reason still allowed to spout BS on national TV (although it is Fox)



Two words: Freak show.

I bet her former clients have two different words.

What two words do you have?

Here's a tip:

Whenever someone in sales answers a question with "Absolutely!", proceed to run like hell.

The good news in real estate is there's good news in real estate.

She speaks a good line of sheep. Very clear.

I'm a bank Loan Officer.
All but one purchase loan that I have made in the last 3 months has been on a foreclosure property. Every one was discounted substantially compared to similar homes for sale in the area. As long as the "deals" are out there I think we will see buyer activity. But the poor homeowner who is trying to sell their home for what they think it's worth is goingto be disappointed

The division of the company that I still semi-work for (retired) has the division's top salesman on board. This a$$hole is a sales god. He would sell his own mother, wife, and daughter to the devil in order to get your signature on the bottom line. When he is in his stride, he is a wonder to behold. He bends them over and drives it home, dry, and they always come back begging for more.

Sales is sales. It is what it is!

Never, never, NEVER listen to or trust ANYONE on commission.

On a side note, I see that Washington Mutual's stock is at 5 cents a share this morning. Probably over priced. I think I'll wait a bit before I jump in.

WaMu has a special place in my heart for all the nice gift cards they sent me for opening accounts (at their invitation) without once specifying any restrictions for duplicate accounts, never checking, or for even caring how many I opened. Hey, maybe with the spring "buying season" coming up we will see some more credit card "specials." I could really use some more free junk.

One can only hope!

That's okay, we are apparently a nation of people with worse math skills that that!

But I think there may be a preexisting contraction you could use (or at least one that we can establish just especially for her):

Fugly Whore.

I had a crush on Terry from years back! Connie is one of those chicks that you'd like to bang, but definitely not have anything to do with her long term, unless you don't mind paying her psychiatric outpatient bills...

Why is anyone still taking Fox News seriously? Under Bush, they have fatally blurred the boundary between straight journalism and entertainement. They have entertained American gullible folks for years, hijacking their attention away from the real stories of bankers, realtors, regulators, the corrupt Congress, Wall Street whores, and 21st century con artists.
Anyone with a shred of a brain would've realized by now that Fox was a masquerade from the start, that Fox helped fu*k up the entire nation. But who else would foot the bill for those morons still watching Fox News? It's YOU! Yes! It's YOU who by some miracle have made it through the Bush-Cheney years with their brains partly undamaged! Just use that undamaged part of your brain and think about it!
My apologies to the bright, the most probing minds out there (and here) who continuously question anything that comes out of their "elected" officials...

There are some people I know who are now jumping right in and buying a home because "it's such a great deal", "now is the time to buy", "it's a buyers market, thank God!", etc... I am sorry. But I can't feel sorry for people who just won't do their own due diligence. They won't investigate on their own or critically think.

I've watching real estate and reading the blogs for close to 7 years. I'm finally going to buy a house. Found a nice house up the road on 4.5 acres for what I'm paying in rent for a similar house. Plus its 50% down from the recorded sale 2 years ago.

Anonymous said...

Plus its 50% down from the recorded sale 2 years ago.Yeah, good deal. I remember last summer blogging with people who thought it was a "good deal" to buy Citigroup, Bank of American, Fannie Mae, Beazer Homes, etc, stocks at a 50% discount from recent prices.

What words do you think they were using last March when some of these good deals were off 95%??? Hint: none of the words was a synonym of "good". Some were synonyms of "crime".

Are the houses you are looking at priced back to 2002 levels? 2002 was the beginning of the really steep bubble disconnect. Is the job market in those neighborhoods recovering smartly? That will be the key to rents not softening further (or collapsing) thereby further disadvantaging house prices through the price-to-rent ratio. How about DOM (days on market) and MOI (months of inventory)? Getting healthy? If not, prices continue their recent trend because more desperate sellers (or banks, after debtor walk-aways) will compete on price. Are these neighborhoods where all the houses are unique, or are they cookie-cutter row after row of nearly identical townhouses? If the latter, the only thing they have to compete on is price.

Right now, the housing market is what the stock market usually is, according to Buffett: "a mechanism to transfer wealth from the active to the patient."

Who are you going to trust- Chrissy from Three's Company or Trapper John?

Oh wait that's an insult Chrissy. She may have been a dumb blond but she was smart enough to rent.

Why don't they ever ask Connie how HER sales figures are looking these days?

I couldn't bring myself to watch this clip, since I've seen her so many times before...I just ate dinner and didn't want it to come up.

Can't believe this non-degreed hooker is still whoring away in Beverly Hills and making...umm, hundreds of dollars now...

So if she was degreed she could charge more for being a whore? But the real question is would she think she was too good to swallow?
