Please Stop Spamming Me

Published

on

Dear Relocation.com and WONGDOODY Communications,

As you mentioned in your email, I am indeed a contributor to Agent Genius.  However, I do not wish to advertise on, or buy leads from, Relocation.com or its affiliate, Homegain.  Please remove me from all of your email lists; I do not wish to receive any further press releases.

While I appreciate the offer, I also do not require a headshot of Mr. Denker, although I wish him well in his new job.

I am puzzled by one thing, however: why is an advertising company – a company who helps others get the word out about their brand and their business – sending out mass email from a Yahoo account and not from their own domain?

Odd.

Sincerely,

Kelley

    Because no webmaster is going to flat out spambox Yahoo mail.

    go girl – that was the best example I have seen this year on how to waste money and goodwill. The genius that came up with that plan needs to rethink or rather first-think the repercussions of stupidity – see https://www.darwinawards.com/

    Hey answer-sock: it was a rhetorical question. 🙂

    John – I think you were copied on the same email to me.

    Benn – I looked at the wongdoody site. Turns out, it was founded by two people, last names ‘wong’ and ‘doody’. Must’ve been a rough childhood.

    On an unrelated note, I am – at this very moment that I am typing – being spammed by a lender through my Plugoo IM widget.

Funny video most real estate professionals can relate to

Published

on

Have you ever had a buyer that was so enthusiastic about their potential home that they have a list a mile long of requirements? The front door must face east, the windows must be Pella brand, the carpet must be cut pile berber, it must be within two lots of a fire hydrant, needs to have wooden rods in the closet, not metal and of course the exterior paint must be barn red.

You already know what home they need and will love based on their actual needs and you’re going to show them that house, but in the meantime you may end up feeling a bit like the character in this video that is just so funny, we can all relate to (whether about a buyer or otherwise):

Can you relate? Maybe in a former career or if you’re one of our readers that is a designer first and foremost?

Funniest Realtor parody videos you’ll see all minute, guaranteed!

Published

on

Who says the phenomenon of funny cat videos and stupid girl falling in a fountain while texting at the mall videos don’t spill over into the real estate world? We’ve highlighted three hilarious real estate videos below that are well worth the ten minutes to watch, even if you’re in the office and have to put headphones on.

Video 1: theagent.tv… the best part is at 2:29… MOVE!

Video 2: I Love You, Man… the best part is the whole clip. If you haven’t seen this horribly inappropriate movie, the lead character is a Realtor. He is awesome.

Video 3: Realtor loves his job. Or something… the best part is at 0:39. Is that the fireplace over there!?

Tell us in comments which video moment caught your eye!

A pig and a poke (The MLS “Menu”)

Published

on

This week I actually got hungry reading the MLS and the LA Times real estate ads. Check out these bloopers so you can see what’s currently on the menu. I must warn you, you may want to hit the sauce and trim the fat:

I’m In the Mood For Food 

“This hame is well stocked.” (Thank you, Porky Pig.) 

“Hear is the glolden egg!” (…Which apparently comes scrambled.) 

“Counter w/ new pop and fresh” ( Fat little dough boy included.)

“This one has alla the gravy” (Said Carmella Soprano as she proudly served her baked ziti.)

“You’ll marble when you see this beauty” (Bummer. At least Lot’s wife got to be a condiment.)

“We hamdle REOs” (That’s one way to bring home the bacon.) 

Ham Fingers…So The Pork Lingers                                            

“Small pad w/ view of peer” (Why go home when you can sleep at the office?) 

“This is not a TIC” (…said Jeff Goldblum’s  hands.) 

“This pad in the Hollywood Hills is phat.” (So is your head, Biggie Smalls.) 

“Cabinets w/ polished mental inserts” (Listing w/ punch drunk mental idiot.)

“This is a Short Shale” (Say that five times really fast.) 

Is It Happy hour Yet? 

“Just done finished floored” (Bottle done, finished agent on floor.) 

“Cork floors in bar aria” (Methinks the cork was popped several drinks ago.) 

“Stunning hammerred doors” (Offered by stumbling hammered dufus.) 

“This condonimiun has all the trimmins” (Sauced agent has the tremorrrrs.) 

SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE – THE FINALE!

“Bask in the warm sin by the pool” (Yay – party at Charlie Sheen’s  pad!)
