Hi friends, and Happy New Year. This year of bloopers is already in full-swing.  Check out these gaffes that indicate that some people didn’t learn how to proof-read in 2013. However, the culprits are certainly are providing some laughs for 2014. Please enjoy!

“New ear speacial!  (Proudly offered by Vincent Van Gogh at Asymmetrical Realty, Inc.)

“We are now back in full swig” (I think that’s apparent, pal.)

“Pot-holiday reduction” (This property is obviously in mile-high Colorado.)

“Drop by for launch” (Methinks you’re as high as the Colorado Realtor.)

“A step above all otters” (That’s good to know…if I’m buying houseboat.)

“8 foot deep in-ground polo” (That’s interesting…polo for dead guys.)

“Regressive pricing” (Oh good – there’s a roll-back on houses at K-Mart!)

“Beautiful roe garden” (I love caviar…but how do you keep the cats at bay?)

“Bach on market” (Thanks, I’ll alert all my clients who want to purchase a dead composer.)

“For tose with taste” (This guy must be into toe jam…)

“Up and commie neighborhood” (Let me guess – the homes are all red?)

“A rare fiend” (Not so rare here in Holly-weird, my friend.)

“Get of to a goood start” (Uh, at this rate, I’m afraid your year is going to suck.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell well and sell!

Written By

I wear several hats: My mink fedora real estate hat belongs to Sotheby’s International Realty on the world famous Sunset Strip. I’M not world famous, but I've garnered a few Top Producer credits along the way. I also wear a coonskin writer's cap with an arrow through it, having written a few novels and screenplays and scored a few awards there, too. (The arrow was from a tasteless critic.) My sequined turban is my thespian hat for my roles on stage, and in film and television, Dahling. You can check me out in all my infamy at LinkedIn,, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
