Mad Monkey’s Mother writes

Chris Fountain–

Do you have Any good news to share–Shame on you! You are not supportive of the Greenwich real estate market. What’s your point? In your job as an agent, you could be more positive. Are you the prophet of doom? And what makes your opinion SO IMPORTANT??? You have been wrong many times before.

Why do I suspect that the writer is a fellow real estate agent? If we could just all get along and say wonderful things about every house for sale – how each one is in the very best neighborhood, on the very best street and perfectly priced, our market would soar! It’s nasty people like me who are ruining the party and no one will like us when we’re proved wrong. Boo hoo.

    The writer sounds more like a scolding granny than a businesswoman (or worse, businessman).

    What continually amazes me is that I am continually amazed at the number of people in this world that believe if a tree falls in the woods and there is no one to “report” the event that they can continue to say the tree is as tall as ever. Thus, I guess living their lives in blissful ignorance.

    I think Chamberlain took that approach with Hitler in the ’30’s, but I digress.

    Based on my meager understanding of markets, disclosure and information makes for efficient, well-functioning markets. Something that benefits all involved in the long run, avoiding the kinds of dislocations we are currently experiencing.

    I just can’t understand how all these people think that you are so important that your little blog affects the whole of the Greenwich real estate market. Am I am missing something?
    By commenting they are just stimulating interest in the blog.

      It’s not just Greenwich, Anonymous, I’m so influential that I’ve brought down the world’s entire financial system. Even I’m surprised by my reach, sometimes.

    Time to check those internet stats again . . . you might have more countries than the U.N. now.

    You’ve certainly ruffled feathers in Lower Slobovia.

    Obviously this person missed the few posts last week of three houses going to contract… You often say nice things about houses too. I find you objective and honest
